Build 22.0.8462


General Changes

  • Added ServerRelativeUrl column in Lists View.
  • Added the links on the Connecting to REST API page under Sharepoint Online and Sharepoint OnPremise sections.
  • Added RenameAttachmentOrDocument and MoveAttachmentOrDocument Stored Procedures in SOAP and REST Schema.
  • Changed the datatype of PertainingToTerm column from Boolean to String in GetValidTerms View.
  • Add support for the ReadTimeout option to the download stored procedures in the REST schema. ReadTimeout can be used to force a download to fail after a certain time, unlike Timeout which only triggers if the download stalls for that amount of time.
  • Added the Default column to the sys_procedureparameters table.
  • Added the WriteToFile parameter for CreateSchema stored procedure in SOAP schema. This defaults to true and must be disabled to write the schema to FileStream or FileData.

  • Removed SchemaDirectory parameter from CreateSchema stored procedure in SOAP schema. Instead, the Location connection property path will be used to create the schema.
  • Added UseEntityTypeName property to determine if the table name should be EntityTypeName instead of the title in the REST schema.
  • Added the FileStream input attribute to add outputstream and FileData output attribute to print the response in DownloadAttachment, DownloadDocument stored procedures in SOAP and REST schema.
  • Added the FileStream input attribute to add outputstream and FileData output attribute to print the response in CreateSchema stored procedure in SOAP schema.
  • Added the Content input attribute to add inputstream in AddAttachment, UploadDocument stored procedures in SOAP and REST schema.
  • Added the IsPath column to the sys_procedureparameters table.
  • We now support handling the keyword "COLLATE" as standard function name as well.
  • Removed the Enum value Germany from AzureEnvironments as Microsoft has retired its Germany-based cloud.
  • Changed provider name to Microsoft SharePoint.
  • OAuthGrantType has been deprecated. Use the AuthScheme connection property instead.
  • Added a new Id column for the Users view in the REST Schema.

  • Added the ItemId column to get RoleAssignments, RoleAssignmentMember, RoleDefinitionBindings.
  • Added support for the STRING_SPLIT table-valued function in the CROSS APPLY clause.
  • Added the stored procedures CreateFolder, UploadDocument, DeleteDocument, CopyDocument, CheckInDocument, CheckOutDocument, DiscardCheckOutDocument, AddAttachment, DeleteAttachment to the REST Schema.
  • Added new AuthScheme "SharePointOAuth" to support client credentials flow using SharePoint App.
  • Added the KeySeq column to the sys_foreignkeys table.
  • Added the new sys_primarykeys system table.
  • Removed the Permissions view from the REST schema.

  • Replaced Permissions with RoleAssignments, RoleAssignmentMember and RoleDefinitionBindings views in the REST schema.
  • Added new columns LoginName, Title, IsHiddenInUI for the Users view and Id for the Groups view in the REST schema.
  • Added support for Attachments, Permissions and SubSites views in the REST schema.

  • Added support for OAuth Authentication without JWT cert for Client Credentials by when using a SharePoint App.
  • Updated the Literal Function Names for relative date/datetime functions. Previously relative date/datetime functions resolved to a different value when used in the projection vs te predicate. Ie: SELECT LAST_MONTH() AS lm, Col FROM Table WHERE Col > LAST_MONTH(). Formerly the two LAST_MONTH() methods would resolve to different datetimes. Now they will match.
  • As a replacement for the previous behavior, the relative date/datetime functions in the criteria may have an 'L' appended to them. Ie: WHERE col > L_LAST_MONTH(). This will continue to resolve to the same values that previously were calculated in the criteria. Note that the "L_" prefix will only work in the predicate - it not available for the projection.
  • Added the TCP Logging Module for the logging information happening on the TCP wire protocol. The transport bytes that are incoming and ongoing will be logged at verbosity=5.
  • Added support for PingFederate identity provider in Sharepoint Online SOAP schema.
  • Added support for the AzureServicePrinciple authentication scheme only using a JWT certs instead of the OAuthClientSecret.
  • Added support to authenticate submitting JWT certs instead of the OAuthClientSecret for the AzureServicePrinciple, OAuth and AzureAD authentication schemes.
  • Added support for handling client side formulas during insert / update. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1 = Concat(Col1, " - ", Col2) WHERE Col2 LIKE 'A%'
  • Updated how display sizes are determined for varchar primary key and foreign key columns so they will match the reported length of the column.
  • Non-conditional updates between two columns is now available to all drivers. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1=Col2

  • Reduced the length to 255 for varchar primary key and foreign key columns.
  • Updated implicit and metadata caching to improve performance and support for multiple connections. Old metadata caches are not compatible - you would need to generate new metadata caches if you are currently using CacheMetadata.
  • Updated index naming convention to avoid duplicates
  • Updated and standardized Getting Started connection help.
  • Added the Advanced Features section to the help of all drivers.
  • Categorized connection property listings in the help for all editions.

  • Kerberos authentication is updated to use TCP by default, but will fall back to UDP if a TCP connection cannot be established
  • The UseSSO connection property is deprecated. You should select the preferred SSO scheme directly from the AuthScheme property instead.
  • The URNAddress is deprecated. This property is used inside the SSOProperties and it should be specified when authenticating to ADFS on Sharepoint On-Premise. Instead RelyingParty should be used as in other drivers.
  • Added support for retrieving information regarding the current logged in user via the GetCurrentUser stored procedure.
