Subject Re: SharePoint Connector REST-API.
Date Tue, 20 Sep 2016 13:19:05 GMT
Hi Mateusz,

The development work that is needed to support Sharepoint REST is
extensive.  It's not clear either whether the API is complete enough to
succeed at this.  But if you have test servers, that's quite a help; the
people who wanted this development never responded to our co-development
offer.

The CONNECTORS-1247 branch was set up to begin to develop this ability.
Essentially there will need to be parallel versions of all the connectors
and authorities that currently have any relationship with SharePoint, with
the possible exception of the SharePointADAuthority.  The most difficult
part of dealing with the REST API itself is dealing with the OAuth model
that SharePoint uses for authorization.  In order to get past that, as a
first step I recommended developing a REST version of the native
SharePointAuthority.  If this can be developed successfully (and it's a
relatively contained exercise) I can leverage that in order to develop the
main connector.

My problem at the moment is that I have extremely limited time for this
project.  But if you can find a way to do and contribute that first
connector, I will likely be able to do much more by November or so.

Thanks,
Karl
