OnedriveMapper v3.15 released!

Version 3.15 of OneDriveMapper has been released:

  • MFA support for Phone Activation in Native Mode
  • MFA support for App Activation in Native Mode
  • Beta: automatic mapping of Teams, Sites and Groups that the user has favorited

AutoMapping

The following URL shows the Teams, Sites and Groups your account has favorited (following): https://YOURTENANTNAME.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx?v=following

If you set autoMapFavoriteSites to $True in the script configuration, the script will attempt to automatically assign free driveletters to all sites/teams/groups you’re following. This is, of course, beta functionality. I intend to add additional customization options for this feature in v3.16

As always, make sure to test before deploying to production, I’ve only tested Azure AD (no ADFS) setup, and note that MFA support can change quickly if Microsoft makes changes to the authentication process.

portal.microsoftonline.com down (fixed)

It seems portal.microsoftonline.com is down, this may affect OnedriveMapper users, some tenants seem to get redirected during the logon process to portal.microsoftonline.com, but many also don’t. If you’re affected, open a ticket with Microsoft.

OnedriveMapper will show this in the log: | ERROR | Error detected while following redirect, check the FAQ for help

Update: it seems only ADFS / federated tenants are affected.

Update: the RPT update command seems to have fixed the issue for most of those affected.

OnedriveMapper v3.14 released!

Version 3.14 of OneDriveMapper has been released:

  • added an ‘always reset IE cookies’ option
  • completely revamped the way you configure mappings (make sure you read the help in the code!)
  • optionally, map to Network Locations instead of Driveletters (thanks Tom!)
  • Most options are no longer mandatory
  • OnedriveMapper Cloud no longer supported (as announced last year)
  • New and greatly enhanced Folder Redirection functions, including automatic copying of source content
  • Optional client certificate selection based on certificate template name
  • Automatic certificate refresh if no client certificate is present, when using client certificates as auth mode
  • Some bugfixes and major code cleanup
  • Usage of environment variable to determine mapping driveletter removed

As always, make sure to test before deploying to production, I’ve only tested Azure AD and a single ADFS setup.

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 🙂
