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 https://aka.ms/livesdkmigration 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: https://m-files.com/user-guide/latest/eng/share_public_link.html#share_public_link
