Microsoft OneDrive for Business Connector

CES 7.0.8047+ (December 2015)

The Coveo connector for Microsoft OneDrive for Business (previously known as SkyDrive Pro) allows you to bring the information stored on OneDrives for Business contained in SharePoint personal sites (MySites) into the unified index so that end-users can easily access this content. The connector allows Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) to crawl and index OneDrives in SharePoint (2013 and Online) personal sites.

OneDrive for Business connector features

  • Content indexing

    The connector indexes all the OneDrive for Business content created or uploaded in OneDrive such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote documents.

    Note: OneNote documents are not indexed by default. You need to install Microsoft Office 2010 Filter Pack (see Microsoft OneDrive for Business Connector Deployment Overview).

  • Security

    The OneDrive for Business connector supports security for SharePoint using Classic Mode or Claims Based authentication.

    • Classic Mode

      The connector indexes permissions on OneDrive for Business items as SharePoint groups and Windows accounts.

      • When a user performs a query, returned results are only those to which his Windows account has access.

    • Claims Based (Windows [NTLM or Kerberos], ADFS)

      The connector indexes permissions on OneDrive for Business items as SharePoint groups and Claims.

      • When a user performs a query, returned results are only those with permissions that match any of the Claims assigned to the user after he is successfully authenticated in SharePoint.

  • Incremental refresh

    Once incremental refresh is enabled on a OneDrive for Business source, the OneDrive for Business connector automatically refreshes the content modified since the last incremental refresh run. This way, the index is always kept up to date (see Scheduling a Source Incremental Refresh).
