Access files on SharePoint Online
You can access files from your SharePoint Online sites in Nuvolos applications. (Preview feature.)
To access your SharePoint Online site documents from Nuvolos applications, you must authenticate with Microsoft365 using a web browser so programmatic access to your data on SharePoint Online / OneDrive Business would be authorized for your Nuvolos applications. There are two options for how the authentication can be performed:
Once the utility is installed, open a command-line prompt and start to configure a new "remote", a cloud service access by issuing the command
onedrivecloud storage provider:
Microsoft Cloud Globalregion, or the
Microsoft Cloud Germanyregion if your data is hosted on Microsoft Cloud Germany:
You will not need to edit the advanced config and you should choose the auto config option, which will open a browser tab to log in to Microsoft365:
Once you have successfully logged on, the browser will instruct you to return to the
rcloneconfiguration session in the command line.
Next, either select
OneDrive Personal or Businessor
SharePoint site name or URLfrom the type of connection prompt. If you select
SharePoint site name or URL, please specify the URL of your SharePoint Online site as seen below:
Select the folder with the data you wish to use.
Once the configuration is complete,
rclonewill present you the
drive_idreceived from Microsoft365. Please copy these values and save them as secrets in Nuvolos:

You can create Nuvolos secrets under your Nuvolos user settings:
Click Settings and then click on the Environment tab, click ADD SECRET:
Create a secret named
SHAREPOINT_ACCESS_TOKENand copy the value of the
rclonein the command line prompt as the secret value:
Then create another secret named
SHAREPOINT_DRIVE_IDand copy the value of the
rclonein the command line prompt as a secret value:
If you have successfully set both secret values, you have completed the prerequisites that are required to access data from SharePoint Online in Nuvolos applications.
Currently, SharePoint Online data access is a preview feature, please reach out to Nuvolos Support to enable SharePoint data mounting for your specific Nuvolos application. Once the feature will reach GA state, this will be configurable in the Nuvolos application configuration.
Once the prerequisite configuration has been done and the applications have been also configured to use SharePoint Online, you can start your Nuvolos application.
The files from the remote server will be accessible under the path
/sharepoint. If you wish to use a different path, please reach out to Nuvolos support.
