How plugin handles full control permissions granted within SharePoint tenant?

216 views April 9, 2024 0

  • Solution: In the free version of the plugin, we ask users to grant full tenant permissions for SharePoint to simplify the configuration process. However, in the paid versions, we have implemented the Microsoft Graph APIs, which allow you to have fine-grained control over the SharePoint site’s data that can be accessed using the plugin.
  • With the Microsoft Graph implementation, you can specify which SharePoint site’s data can be fetched using the application.
  • For example: You can assign Azure AD API permissions (Sites.Selected) to only the “Communication Site” in SharePoint, and the access token received will only allow access to files and folders within that specific site. Furthermore, you have the flexibility to choose whether “Read” or “ReadWrite” permissions are required for end users.
  • It’s important to note that our plugin works by providing file preview and download functionalities through APIs. This means that end users interact with WordPress URLs and never gain direct access to the SharePoint portal, ensuring an additional layer of security.
  • Additionally, we provide a feature that allows you to apply WordPress user/role-specific restrictions on the SharePoint Folders and Files. You can assign individual users with a specific SharePoint folder and they will be able to view the content only for the same.
