[Introduction] Sharepoint Integration

INTRODUCTION

The Dualog Drive SharePoint integration enables the synchronization of data from SharePoint to Drive clients and from Drive clients to SharePoint. Later it will also support moving files between SharePoint and Drive Clients.

The SharePoint Integration will not offer two-way synchronization, and no direct connection would be established between Drive clients and Sharepoint.

Both the integration and interaction would only be made through the Dualog cloud.

The SharePoint integration will, when fully implemented, simplify the Drive architecture, as no physical Drive Client needs to be installed onshore.

HOW IT WORKS - OVERVIEW

By using SharePoint integration, Drive clients only need to be installed on ships. The Dualog Drive Cloud connects to SharePoint to either collect data for distribution to ships or deliver data received from ships.

Currently, SharePoint integration supports Sync-tasks. Move-tasks will be supported in Q2 2022.

It is important to notice that this integration is only for having such systems as source or destination - and will not include their full file sharing features.

Drive Cloud will replace the office client by scanning configured locations (Drives/folders) on SharePoint for updates, as well as distributing updates from ships to the configured destination on SharePoint.

CONFIGURATIONS

Configuring Drive to use SharePoint requires multiple steps:

  1. Azure Active Directory configuration
    In Azure AD, you need to both find the required information and make config changes
  2. Set up SharePoint Integration
    Multiple SharePoint integrations can be configured for your organization. These configurations can then be used to set up Drive to use SharePoint as a source for Sync tasks.
    • Set up SharePoint Connection
      Configure Dualog Drive to connect to your SharePoint. Required information is obtained/created in the previous section
    • Select SharePoint Drive
      Select which SharePoint Drive to use
  3. Configure Dualog Drive to use SharePoint
    Configure Drive to use the configured Sharepoint integration as a source or destination for Sync tasks.

UPCOMING FEATURES

Later it will also support the synchronization of data from Drive clients to SharePoint as well as Moving files between SharePoint and Drive Clients.

Supporting of Move tasks will be introduced soon.
