Integrate Microsoft OneDrive for Business with over 150 external systems. Use the Layer2 Cloud Connector in a very easy way, or benefit from customizable options and features. It's up to you!
Step 1 - Configure your OneDrive
Open your SharePoint Online, navigate to the top left corner from the page and open the apps tab. Click on the OneDrive icon.
First, click the cogwheel icon on the top right corner to open the settings menu.
In the bottom left corner, look for the "Return to Classic OneDrive" option, as presented in the screenshot, and select it.
Next, navigate to the directory you want to connect to and copy the URL from your browser, which typically looks like this: https://company-my.sharepoint.com/personal/myAccount/Documents/Forms/All.aspx
Hints and known issues
As far as tested, this connection supports uni-directional as well as bi-directional synchronizations. After adjusting the direction to bi-directional, you should check your Mappings settings again because some systems might include read-only columns that cannot be mapped directly. We also recommend to choose a Conflict Resolution that matches your environments needs. You can find out more about the different conflict resolutions in our Layer2 Cloud Connector User Documentation.
Other libraries or lists
If you want to use another library in your OneDrive, you can get the correct URL by navigating to the location, opening the List/Library Settings and looking at the "Web Address:" given at the top of the settings page. That is the URL you will need for the connection string to this location. If you are having trouble finding other content in your OneDrive location, you can click on the Cog-like icon near your account name in the upper-right corner and select Site settings from the list of options. Then under "Site Administration", select Site libraries and lists, which will show all items currently in the OneDrive as well as allow you to create new ones. The site content may also be listed in the left column of that page, if your UI configuration allows it.
SharePoint list attachments
SharePoint list attachments are not managed at this time and are not supported.
OneDrive fo Business supports files up to 2GB. Larger files will be rejected. (See SharePoint Online software boundaries and Limits for more information.)
