Configure a Microsoft OneDrive Content Connector

After you configure and enable a Microsoft OneDrive content connector, you can connect to OneDrive and pull required content from it into Oracle Content Management.

A Microsoft OneDrive content connector enables you to import assets from the OneDrive repository into Oracle Content Management. As an Administrator or Developer, you can configure a Microsoft OneDrive content connector from the Integrations menu in an Oracle Content Management instance.

        You can review the Terms of use and Privacy Policy below the Enable for end users button.

      This menu lists all the content connectors that have been configured and enabled in your Oracle Content Management instance.

      If any of the connectors you select have content types associated with them, the types appear under Content Types.

After a Microsoft OneDrive content connector is configured, enabled, and associated with a repository, it's available in the asset repository for Oracle Content Management users to download content, through the Add drop-down menu Import from Microsoft OneDrive option on the Assets page.


An authorized application for a OneDrive content connector must provide a link to, or to another location specified for a OneDrive content connector, with a clear indication that end users can go to that Microsoft site to revoke permissions at any time. If end users must take additional steps to disable the authorized application's access to end-user information, then the application must clearly indicate to end users the additional steps required to disable access. These requirements do not apply where Microsoft provides the end-user web interface.
