    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:

    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’

    • OAuth2 Setup:
      • Enable ‘Code Challenge’
      • Enable ‘Include Nonce’
      • Set ‘Authorization Endpoint URL’
        • https://login.microsoftonline.com/%realm/oauth2/v2.0/authorize
        • %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’
        • https://login.microsoftonline.com/%realm/oauth2/v2.0/token
        • %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 https://graph.microsoft.com/
        • We are not 100% sure about the Scope at this moment .. waiting on feedback
      • Set Response Mode to:  form_post
      • Set Response Type to:  code+id_token
      • 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>.

    How to access SharePoint Rest API using OAuth

    Version v2023 is needed and available here.

    This Authorization method using OAuth2 was tested by a customer of us (Eddy, we really appreciate this). It is based on the following article.

    As mentioned in the article, 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

    Feedback customer:

    • This required the following settings in Azure. Maybe only the delegated permissions under Graph are enough, didn’t play too much.

    • Also the the redirect url should be set for the app, and ID_token must be enabled.

    Limagito File Mover Setup:

    • In this case the Auth Type in our SharePoint setup should be set to: ‘OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code Flow’

    • OAuth2 Setup:
      • Disable ‘Code Challenge’
        • Seems to work also when enabled (tested by customer)
      • Enable ‘Include Nonce’
      • Set ‘Authorization Endpoint URL’
        • https://login.microsoftonline.com/%realm/oauth2/authorize
        • %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’
        • https://login.windows.net/%realm/oauth2/token?api-version=1.0
        • %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
        • If you don’t receive a Refresh Token, change it to:  openid offline_access
        • Customer used: https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com/.default
      • Set ‘Resource’ to:  https://graph.microsoft.com/
        • Customer used: https://<Tenant>.sharepoint.com
      • Set Response Mode to:  form_post
      • Set Response Type to:  id_token+code
      • 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>.

    Added SharePoint OAuth2 Authentication in Limagito File Mover

    Added SharePoint OAuth2 Authentication

    In version v2020.22.25.0 we added OAuth2 Authentication as a fourth method for connecting to SharePoint.

    Please select ‘Online Authentication using OUath2’ as Authentication Type (Setup Tab). After selection the OAuth2 Tab will be visible.

    Limagito FileMover SharePoint OAuth2

    We received the following information from the customer (thank you Brad):

    • Client Id
    • Client Secret
    • Redirect URI

     

    Update March 2022

    We had a user getting the following error when trying to Get the OAuth2 Token: AADSTS70000

    He had to change App Domain  to: www.localhost.com

    and

    Redirect URI to the Site url (without the  default.aspx  at the end) in the SharePoint Application setup AND Limagito OAuth2 setup

    We used the information from the customer and added them in the OAuth2 Setup:

    1. Client ID
    2. Client Secret
    3. Scope, we used Web.Manage
    4. Redirect URI

    Limagito File Mover SharePoint OAuth2 Setup

    Next, click <GET>

    At this moment we’ll start a request for the Realm and Principal ID of the SharePoint Site. A Dialog will appear with information about the next step.

    Limagito File Mover SharePoint Bearer Realm

    Now you’ll need to click ‘Trust It’ to continue to the next step:

    The Authorization Code will appear in the address bar of your browser.

    Please COPY / PASTE this complete URL (https://…) in the ‘Auth Code’ field of the OAth2 Setup screen. We’ll strip the part we need and trigger a request for a Refresh and Access token. The response will be added to the ‘Refresh Token’ and ‘Access Token’ field of the OAuth2 setup.

    Please click <Save> to save these Tokens which we’ll need to connect.
