Microsoft SharePoint Source Quick Setups

The second generation of Coveo connector for SharePoint and the OneDrive for Business connector (CES 7.0.8047+ (December 2015)) support several SharePoint versions and features as well as various authentication modes (see Microsoft SharePoint Connector and Microsoft OneDrive for Business Connector) . The Coveo components and parameter values required to create SharePoint and OneDrive for Business sources vary depending on the SharePoint environment. The SharePoint and OneDrive for Business connectors documentation may consequently appear somewhat complex because it addresses all aspects of numerous SharePoint environment combinations.

The configuration of the components required to create a source for a given common SharePoint environment is however often simple for an administrator that is familiar with the Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) source creation process.

The topics in this section outline the required components and parameters to create a source for a few common SharePoint environments. Parameters not mentioned should be left to their default values.

In the table of contents, each quick setup title gives information on the SharePoint environment and the CES security configuration, helping you choosing the quick setup that best suits your needs.

Example: Online (Federated - ADFS) [Claims]

  • The first part (in red) is the SharePoint deployment type/installation (either online or on-premises).

  • The second part in parentheses (in blue) is the user authentication in SharePoint.

  • The last part in square brackets (in green) is the user authentication in the Coveo search interface.
