Data Type


Default Value



If authenticating to Sharepoint On-Premise instance, together with Password and User, this field is used to authenticate against the server. NTLM is the default option. Use the following options to select your authentication scheme:

  • NTLM: Set this to use your Windows credentials for authentication.
  • Negotiate: If AuthScheme is set to Negotiate, the driver will Negotiate an authentication mechanism with the server. Set AuthScheme to Negotiate if you want to use Kerberos authentication.
  • None: Set this to use anonymous authentication; for example, to access a public site.
  • Forms: Set this if your SharePoint instance uses a custom authentication method through a Web form.
  • Digest: Set this to use HTTP Digest authentication.
  • Basic: Set this to use HTTP Basic authentication.
  • AzureMSI: Set this to automatically obtain Managed Service Identity credentials when running on an Azure VM.
  • AzureAD: Set this to perform Azure Active Directory OAuth authentication.

If authenticating to Sharepoint Online, set AuthScheme to OAuth.
