Advance notice: OnedriveMapper 5

This August, the 17th to be precise, Microsoft 365 will stop supporting IE 11.

As OnedriveMapper 4.X uses Internet Explorer under the hood, there is a chance that functionality will break.

As Microsoft does not intend to actively block IE 11, there may be some lag until users actually begin experiencing issues with OnedriveMapper 4, and V3 may also continue to work properly as it does not use IE (in native mode).

But to ensure continuity I’ve begun testing with OnedriveMapper 5 using the Edge Webdriver and the WebView2 component.

I’m aiming to release an ‘Edge’ (Chromium) version of OnedriveMapper before August so you have ample time to test and upgrade. As always, this update will be free / open source.

ODM 5 will require Edge Chromium to be present on your endpoints.

OnedriveMapper 4.04 with auto reconnect

Version 4.04 OnedriveMapper now automatically reconnects drives (of any type) when the cookie expires. No more ‘broken’ mappings! The script is smart enough to detect if its just a connectivity issue (= do nothing) or an actual drive issue.

All improvements since 4.00:

  1. Auto Remap (automatically reconnect disconnected drives)
  2. Block the IE firstrun wizard properly
  3. Bugfix: properly handle existing shortcuts instead of throwing an error
  4. Increase Converged Drive (single mapping with sub-mappings) reliability
  5. Better cleanup of existing mappings
  6. Always force the ‘keep me signed in’ option
  7. Support for root-level mappings

OnedriveMapper 4.00 with Modern Auth released!

Modern Authentication in OnedriveMapper

With version 4.00 OnedriveMapper now fully supports ‘Modern’ Authentication!

As I wrote started this script in my early programming days and there’s a lot of crap code in there I also finally cleaned up a little, reducing the total number of lines by ~50% 🙂

The result is a much faster, leaner script that will map and/or redirect to anything in Office 365 for any of your users. MFA? Not a problem. External MFA? Also not a problem. Conditional Access? Totally fine.

Some older rarely used legacy features were removed, and login is only silent if no MFA / SSO is configured for IE.

The older version (3.X) will remain in my git repo but will not be actively maintained.
