Adding a SharePoint Online Application

In order to integrate with SharePoint Online, we must first create an application entry in Data Access Security. This entry includes the identification, connection details, and other parameters necessary to create the link.

To add an application, use the New Application Wizard.

  1. Go to Admin > Applications.
  2. Select Add New to open the wizard.
  3. Select Wizard Type.
  4. Select Standard Application
  5. Select Next.

General Details

  1. Complete the General Details:

    • Application Type - SharePoint Online
    • Application Name - Logical name of the application
    • Description - Description of the application
    • Tags - Select tags for the application from the dropdown list or type a new name and press Enter to create a tag. The dropdown list of tags filters out matching tags as you type and displays up to 50 tags.


      The tags replace the Logical container field that was used when creating applications in releases before 8.2.

    • Event Manager Server - If there are multiple event manager servers configured in the system, you can select an event manager from the dropdown list.

    • Identity Collector - Select from the Identity Collector dropdown list.
      • You can create identity collectors in the administrative client.
