Microsoft OneDrive for Business
Set up Azure
First, you need to contact your Azure administrator and ask for three parameters which you’ll need when you create a connector.
Application (Client) ID
Directory (Tenant) ID
You can read the Azure procedure here.
Configure network and firewall access
You will need to give Exonar Reveal network access, including firewall access, to OneDrive.
For further details, take a look at this documentation from Microsoft.
Create the data source in Exonar
In Exonar, create a data source:
From the main menu select Data Sources
Click New ⇾ New Data Source
In the New Data Source dialog, select the dataset this new data source will belong to by:
choosing an existing dataset from the dropdown, or
clicking Add to new Data Set and typing the name of your dataset
If you use option 3b, remember to add the dataset to at least one security group
If you don’t, no users will be able to see the data from this data source
Select the Office 365 data source and click Next
Select which Office 365 service you want to use: Exchange, SharePoint, or OneDrive
Enter the Azure credentials for this data source
Your Azure administrator can supply these
If you want to ingest all the content of your OneDrive, leave the Folder Path field blank
You’ll receive an error message if you attempt to ingest all your data using a folder path such as this:
If you want to ingest a folder such as this one on OneDrive:
My files > OneDrive-XYZ-files > Example
Use this path:
Think about the ingestion scope you want to use:
For this scope:
We crawl mailbox content for this:
All users that a tenant has
All users belonging to a domain under the tenant
All users belonging to a domain group
An individual domain user
Optionally, click Test Credentials
Exonar validates them and shows you what the credentials allow you to crawl
Choose your ingestion scope:
Depending on the scope you choose, you’ll need to find:
email address for the user or group of users
Fill in the domain and email and folder path if needed.
If the scope is Everything, you don’t need any parameters.
Optionally, click Test Connection
In most cases, this test is reliable. However, you might want to configure a data source before the target server is available, or perhaps during a scheduled maintenance window when the check isn’t possible.
Also, Office 365 cannot be fully validated without attempting to crawl data.
The Ignore this warning checkbox allows you to set up the data source even if validation fails.
Select the country for this data source and click Next
The country is used in geographical visualisations
Optionally, click Add Custom Description
This allows you to use you own description for this data source, rather than accept the default description that Exonar provides
Set the Crawl priority
Specify whether you want to crawl once or continuously
Click Start Crawl Immediately if you want to crawl the data right now
Or you can start a crawl manually anytime you want
Click Create Data Source
