Question

How do I configure eDiscovery to collect from OneDrive through a single connector?

 

Prerequisites

  • eDiscovery 6.3 or newer
  • Web access to OneDrive from the Collections Work Manager.
  • Credentials for a O365 user with the "Global administrator" role.   (Roles can be checked by going to https://portal.office.com/adminportal/ > Users > Active Users > and selecting the desired user)

 

Resolution

To configure the application to collect from OneDrive is a two part process.

First, you must create a OneDrive Server application:

1. Navigate to the Microsoft Application Registration Portal (https://apps.dev.microsoft.com/)

2. Log in with your organization’s OneDrive global administrator’s credentials

3. At “My Applications” click “Add an app”

NOTE: Your URL should be formed like this: https://contosocompany/accessdata.

NOTE: You HAVE to use your organization's named URL from the "AD eDiscovery" application.

16. When prompted, log in with your organization’s OneDrive global administrator's credentials and click “Accept”

  • You may need to allow pop-ups.
  • The account used to Authorize the connection must have the "Global Administrator" role in O365.
  • Verify that you get the message: “You have successfully connected to the OneDrive!”

 17. Close the secondary window.

 18. Click OK. (This must be done within a limited amount of time.)

Note: You can configure more than one connector if needed.
