M-Files co-authoring using OneDrive and "Share via OneDrive" function
Posted by Ali Öngül (M-Files) on 29 January 2019 05:53 PM

Some customers reported the issue with M-Files co-authoring using OneDrive.

The following warning is shown after trying to use "Share via OneDrive" and "Begin co-authoring in OneDrive" functions

"This API is no longer supported. Please see for information about migrating your application to Microsoft Graph."

Due to unforseen changes in the Microsoft OneDrive API the existing M-Files share and co-authoring features via OneDrive were disabled.

The Co-authoring feature was based on integration between M-Files and OneDrive Personal. The integration did not fulfill the security requirements of most M-Files customers, and due to a low adoption of this feature and the recent changes in OneDrive Personal API, we are discontinuing this feature.
We are actively working on a new, improved co-authoring feature that will be based on Office 365. We expect to launch this feature in May 2019.
Co-authoring is supported in a few ways in M-Files:
- Co-authored files can be stored in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint and accessed via the M-Files user interface by using IML Connectors for external repositories.
- The co-authoring feature can be enabled by following the instructions in the document Customizing Co-Authoring and Sharing Features.
- Co-authoring via Office 365 is supported in the May '19 update.

You can set co-authoring feature to use a SharePoint Document Library as a backend by following this configuration guide:

For sharing files with non-M-Files users, we recommend using the public link feature:
