Note: Microsoft 365 integrations includes the possibility to synchronize your SharePoint, OneDrive and TeamsDrive.



💡Before you get started

  • Create a separate user in your Microsoft 365 that is used for managing the Showell integration. These account credentials can be given to all those in your team to manage the integration.
    The name of the user account can be for example: 'Company name_Admin'.

    Benefits of having a separate user account:
    • A personal account can be used, but it is better to create a unique user for the integration because if the integration needs to be disabled it can be done easily by just removing the integration user and with this, it also avoids cases where the user's personal files are moved to the Showell by accidentally
  • Add read privileges to the this newly created user. (this ensures that this user isn't able to modify the content and will only act as a bridge between Microsoft 365 and Showell.

Note: If it's not possible to limit the user's read privileges in Azure/SharePoint, Showell can make these limitations on our end. Please contact Showell Support with your request and we will help you further
