Microsoft SharePoint


You can use the Microsoft SharePoint connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Microsoft SharePoint and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Microsoft SharePoint, you first must establish a connection to Microsoft SharePoint. Follow these steps to connect Microsoft SharePoint to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Microsoft SharePoint row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • URL - Enter the base URL for your SharePoint site.

    • Share Point Edition - Select the edition of SharePoint that you are using. The default edition is SharePoint OnPremise.

    • Auth Scheme - Select the authentication scheme that you want to use. The default setting is NTLM.

      • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to SharePoint.

      • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to SharePoint.

    • Schema - Select the schema that you want to use. The default schema is SOAP.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
