Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1133) Connector for Sharepoint Office 365
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2017 13:12:00 GMT

Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1133:
-----------------------------------------

Hi [~magoodeepak], to redevelop the MCF connector for SharePoint is a multi-man-month job,
even under the best of conditions.  There are tickets open already proposing specific ways
forward but all of these require that the major heavy lifting be done by somebody who has
time to invest in changing the connector from web services to REST.   There is no guarantee
that such a connector will work entirely, for ManifoldCF, since the places we have had difficulties
with Microsoft's APIs in the past had to do with fetching user ACLs, so after considerable
investment we might find ourselves blocked anyway.

If you would like to undertake development I would be happy to assist, but be aware that all
of us are volunteers and we all work full time on projects unrelated to MCF.

Thanks.
