Summary

Summary


Overview

Overview

The latest version comes with 2 brand new Authentication Methods: AppOnly and AzureApp (full details for these 2 can be found in the PDF documentation in the Resources section).

AzureApp is a login mode that will use an Azure App to impersonate a specific user and perform actions on their behalf. It uses the AzureApplicationID, AzureAppPermissions, Username and Password/SecurePassword properties. This login mode is only available for SharePoint Online instances only.

You should use AppOnly for SharePoint sites for which you are able to create an app-principal. When you create a SharePoint app-principal you will obtain a Client Id and a Client Secret. You will use the two codes for logging in and the credentials are no longer required!

This is an indepth guide on how an app-principal can be created: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/security-apponly-azureacs.

This cheatsheet can be used to assign permissions to an App-Principal: https://medium.com/ng-sp/sharepoint-add-in-permission-xml-cheat-sheet-64b87d8d7600.

The WebLogin Authentication Mode (found under the SharePoint Instance Type property) can potentially authenticate the robot even if the SharePoint instance is using 3rd party identity providers or if only multi-factor authentication is possible. This happens by prompting the user to insert their credentials the first time when the workflow is executed, afterwards the robot stays authenticated. Given that this mode requires human input, it is recommended that this authentication mode is used only for attended automation.
