Setup OAuth on OneDrive for Business

Create your Microsoft Azure OAuth application, configure it for OneDrive access, and integrate with your Filestack application.

Create your OneDrive for Business OAuth application

Filestack offers OneDrive for Business as a source in our file pickers. You must first have a Microsoft account that is configured by the admin of Azure Active Directory and an account that has the OneDrive for Business license assigned to access this Azure account.

To utilize Custom Authentication and use of your own Key, please have an admin of the Azure Active Directory and your Filestack account follow these steps:

  1. Login with admin credentials into Microsoft Azure.

  2. Click on Azure Active Directory on the left side of dashboard you wish to use with Filestack (if there is more than one AAD configured, it can be changed on the left side under the username).
