Connector for Microsoft SharePoint in processes
Accessing data and files on the SharePoint server can also be achieved using processes. With that, a differentiation is made between the following scenarios:
Usage as an interactive user
A process is launched by a chosen triggering dataset event and then provokes the corresponding action. In this case, the process can only apply the SharePoint login information of the currently logged in Intrexx user.
Usage with timer events
In the case of timer events, there is not an interactive user. In this case, a predefined user can be selected using a convenient dialog, this user's context will be used to perform the desired workflow actions. If the process manager has recognized that the selected data group has a connection to a SharePoint service, a user can be defined in this dialog whose context performs the requests.
When the option Static user
is selected, the link Select user
is activated. Clicking on this link opens a dialog where an Intrexx user can be selected. With that, it should be noted that a valid user assignment for this user must be present in the SharePoint configuration (additional users).
When using the option User from system value
, the system value must contain a User GUID
. In this case as well, a valid user assignment must be present in the SharePoint configuration. Click on Edit system value
to define the system value in the following dialog.
The User switch action
allows you to switch users during the process's runtime.
If a static user is defined both within the data group and the process, that user fundamentally has the priority in the data group.
A user who publishes a process with a User switch action needs to have sufficient permission to do so. The user normally has sufficient permission by belonging to the user group Administrators.
