    Cannot get SharePoint Online Authentication (SPOIDCRL) to Work

    Q: SharePoint Online Authentication problem. Hello Team, I am attempting to use a SharePoint directory as a source but am not able to make it past this.

    SharePoint Online Authentication

    I have tried a couple different variations, tried installing the latest Limagito version on a test machine but I get the same error message. Part of the error message says this:



    I tried logging in via a web browser but do not have that option. Thanks,

    A: Could you please check: SharePoint Online web site does not support SharePoint Online credentials

    I changed one of the settings based on that article (the other one was already set to what he recommended. I am going to let the setting propagate as they can take a few hours sometimes.

    SharePoint OAuth 2.0 authorization code flow

    Version v2023 is needed and available here.

    This blog article is based on the following information: Microsoft identity platform and OAuth 2.0 authorization code flow

    First you’ll need to register an AD app with your AD Tenant. It will assign you the necessary information you need for the OAuth2 setup.

    Some links to get you started:

    14th of July 2023, We received feedback from our user Christoph today that he used the settings below together with our latest version v2023.7.10.0 successfully.

    We added some screenshots of a possible setup in our File Mover:

    • Please set Auth Type in our SharePoint setup to: ‘OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code Flow’

    SharePoint OAuth Authentication

    • OAuth2 Setup:
      • Enable ‘Code Challenge’
      • Enable ‘Include Nonce’
      • Set ‘Authorization Endpoint URL’
        • %realm will be replaced by the Realm value (= Tenant or Tenant_ID). You can also enter the full URL including the Tenant.
      • Set ‘Token Endpoint URL’
        • %realm will be replaced by the Realm value (= Tenant or Tenant_ID). You can also enter the full URL including the Tenant.
      • Enter your Client ID and Client Secret (please check the article howto create them)
      • Set ‘Scope’ to: openid offline_access
        • Replace the YourSite part with the <Tenant> name you are using.
        • Don’t forget to add “Sites.ReadWrite.All” to the Permissions in your Azure setup.
          • Permissions Type must be Delegated.
          • FYI: Delegated permissions, also called scopes, allow the application to act on behalf of the signed-in user.
        • An alternative could be: openid offline_access
      • Leave Resource empty
      • Leave Response Mode empty to omit the default response_mode “query” param.
      • Leave Response Type empty, this way the default value “code” will be used.
      • The Redirect URI should be http://localhost/   (and not https://localhost/)
        • Be sure to add the redirect URI in Azure too, combined with the Redirect Port in the example it would be:  http://localhost:3017
      • When using %realm in the ‘Authorization or Token Endpoint URL’
        • Please set ‘Realm’ to your Tenant of Tenant_ID

    After the setup, please click on the <Get> button. If you get a firewall popup, you’ll need to accept this otherwise we will not be able to capture the Tokens.

    Follow the steps in the browser and it should fill the Refresh and Access Token afterwards. Do not forget to click <Save>.

    • Common Setup:

    If you want extra debug information during the test, please enable ‘Add Control Information to Log’

    SharePoint OAuth Authentication

    > Some information about why we use http://localhost/ as redirect URI:

    In the case of a desktop application like our Limagito Remote Tool, you don’t have the capability to receive a redirect on a web server. Our tool will create a temporary background thread for the single purpose of receiving the redirect. Thus the local temporary web browser that interactively gets permission from the account owner is always communicating with your application on the same local machine. There is no communication across the Internet for the redirect, and therefore no HTTPS is needed. In fact, you cannot really use HTTPS because what server certificate would you use? You’d run into all sorts of trust issues with the browser not being happy with some self-signed “localhost” certificate. There’s just no point in opening that can of worms because it’s not even necessary.
