OnedriveMapper IE mode deprecation notice

Update: Microsoft has delayed the new Sign in experience until the end of October.

As posted in an earlier update, Microsoft has redesigned the user experience around the Office 365 (and Azure) login process.

Only two weeks at most remain until this experience will be mandatory, according to above link.

I’ve take a long look at the new experience and have not found a good method to implement this in the IE sign-in method of OnedriveMapper.

This means that the moment Microsoft disables the old sign-in experience, the IE sign-in method of OnedriveMapper will be effectively deprecated.

I expect Native auth mode will continue to function, and if that is also affected, will be fixed quickly. Native auth requires:  Continue reading OnedriveMapper IE mode deprecation notice

OnedriveMapper in Gitlab!

I’ve just moved OnedriveMapper’s code to a public GitLab repository. I’d like the code and download itself to live there from now on.

This allows you to discuss and submit issues with the script, and more importantly, it allows everyone to fork/branch and collaborate on making it even better!

I invite everyone to participate! Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/Lieben/OnedriveMapper_V3

News and notifications about updates will of course still always be posted here.

OnedriveMapper v3.11 release

Version 3.11 of OneDriveMapper has been released:

  • additional fixes to Microsoft’s new sign in method

Important Auto Update Instructions

This version can only auto-update from a cleanly installed v3.10, lower versions will need to be reinstalled.

New Azure AD Signin experience

In IE mode, the script now redirects to the old experience, this means that IE mode will BREAK once Microsoft enforces the new experience. They have not released a timeline for this.

If I have time, I’ll include support for the new experience, but I highly recommend make sure you’re using Native auth as this is far less likely to be affected.

OnedriveMapper v3.10 released!

Version 3.10 of OneDriveMapper has been released!

  • handle the new tile / prompt that appears in IE login mode where Microsoft no longer always redirects to the portal
  • Progress bar color is now a configurable option (cloud/non cloud)
  • alphabetic ordering of configs (cloud only)
  • Fixed auto update loop issue where auto update would break itself for subsequent updates.
  • When restarting self (switching auth mode or auto updating) properly hide the console if this was set

Important Auto Update Instructions

If you were using Auto-Update, DO NOT do so for this version. Use the MSI to replace the old version (see last fixed issue).

New Azure AD Signin experience

As some may have read, Microsoft is previewing a potentially disruptive change without advance notice. My tenants don’t yet display the new behavior so I cannot test if OnedriveMapper will be affected. I haven’t heard of any issues yet 🙂

Onedrive Files On Demand is finally coming!

I’ve been ‘mentioning’ it a few times here and there, wasn’t allowed to say too much….but now it is finally public, coming before the end of the year Onedrive will have a sync on demand feature, no longer requiring local storage on your device!

It will allow all of us OnedriveMapper users to switch to a fully supported Microsoft solution for Windows 10 users.

Quirky thing is, Windows 7 and 2008 / 2012 R2 are not in scope. Possibly another good one to vote on at uservoice 🙂

OnedriveMapper v3.06 released!

Version 3.06 of OneDriveMapper has been released!

  • userLookupMode 6 added, which displays a full and customizable login form to the user which asks for username and password
  • added user login caching for userLookupMode 1 and 2, so the script won’t fail if the user is roaming away from a DC and the login is cached
  • fixed a reference to my test domain in Azure AD PassThrough (liebensraum.nl)
  • fixed a crash when ADFS denies the request in native mode (now properly falls back to IE auth mode if allowed)
  • first basic support for Azure AD SSO

OnedriveMapper V3 public release

Dear OnedriveMapper users,

I’m finally convinced after the help of a large number of beta testers and other supporters that I can release OnedriveMapper V3 to the general public. I don’t expect it to work in all situations, things like MFA and Okta are not yet supported, but I believe it will benefit the majority.

OnedriveMapper V3 features a new authentication mode (‘native mode’), in which authentication takes mere seconds, improving mapping speed on average by a factor 10 or higher. In addition, OnedriveMapper can automatically switch between both authentication modes if one fails, making it far more robust.

Please check the full changelog to verify compatibility of the changes with your environment, and test carefully before deploying in production.

And thanks to those who provided me with Teamviewer access to their unique environments and/or feedback to help make OnedriveMapper the best free product to map your Onedrive for Business or Sharepoint Online libraries to a driveletter.
