SharePoint Online

Microsoft SharePoint connection profile

Connect to SharePoint Online with the built-in Microsoft SharePoint connection profile. Follow these steps to connect to your SharePoint Online libraries:

  1. Create a bookmark with Microsoft SharePoint connection profile
  2. Enter your email address into the username field. The email address is solely used for internal identification and not actual authentication against SharePoint using OAuth.
  3. Double click to connect to the newly created bookmark. You are prompted to enter an Authorization Code you obtain in the web browser window opened. Login to login.microsoftonline.com with your onmicrosoft.com account.
  4. Grant permission to Cyberduck for OneDrive and SharePoint.
  5. You are redirected to https://cyberduck.io/oauth/ where you can copy the Authorization Code to paste in the login prompt.
  6. You are now able to access all sites, subsites, and document libraries thereof as well as all groups you are a member of.

Microsoft SharePoint Site connection profile

In case you are trying to access a site that isn't listed when connecting with the Microsoft SharePoint connection profile you can try to access the missing site with help of the Microsoft SharePoint Site connection profile. While using the Microsoft SharePoint Site connection profile you are required to use your SharePoint hostname (contoso.sharepoint.com) and the URL prefix path configured for your SharePoint site. Note: You can't mount a specific directory with this method as the Path field is used for the URL prefix path.

OneDrive Business

If you need to connect to your personal drive on a plan providing both services refer to OneDrive.

SharePoint Hybrid

If you have your own SharePoint Server but opted in to enable Microsoft Graph-connectivity to your SharePoint Server, you may be able to use the built-in Microsoft SharePoint-Profile.

Please refer to the official documentation from Microsoft for detailed setup guides.

Adminstrator consent required

Administrator-consent may be required in certain situations. Depending on the setup of your Azure Active Directory (AAD) you may need to perform several steps in order for you to be able to access your SharePoint Online. Please get in contact with your domain administrator for following steps.

Manually adding Cyberduck

Copy the link that corresponds to your used version, and send it to your domain administrator, this will add Cyberduck to the domain and all users are allowed to access Cyberduck in the future.

Automatically allow users to add Apps to the domain

If applicable and trusted you may set Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf to Yes at the Azure Active Directory Portal. This will allow users in the future to add apps without Admin-consent.

Admin consent requests (Preview)

There is a preview method of review application consent through the Azure Active Directory (AAD) Portal. Please enable Users can request admin consent to apps they are unable to consent to to Yes in the Enterprise applications - User settings. The domain administrator may now review all consents centrally at Admin consent requests (Preview)
