Sharepoint connection uppdate token

Sharepoint connection uppdate token

Today when you set up a connection to Sharepoint it is only valid for 90 days.  After 90 days if you don't manually refresh the data-connection you get the error "The refresh token has expired due to inactivity".  The connection is active though and retrieves data everyday. But the refresh-token hasn't been updated. 

The limit of 90 days is set by Microsoft, but it should be possible to make an update of token automatically without the need for a user to manually update the data-connection.

My suggestion is that the Sharepoint-data connection handles this.

Regards,

Aron

it's a must have !

Managing connections with this restriction is very annoying, non-expert users do not understand the error message.

Our organisation has several hundred Sharepoint subsites, each of which has a different connector. Having to manually go in and reauthenticate each one every 90 days is time consuming and inefficient, in a tool which is automated in almost every other sense.

@Meghann_MacDonald This has already been implemented.  Why is it still beeing commented? This thread was also the first in the subject and should not be considered a duplicate.

Hi @AronC , I’m cleaning up some of the Ideation forum to make sure nothing is missed. The only reason we closed this as a duplicate (as opposed to the other) is because the product manager  P-O already updated the status in the other idea as “Partially Delivered” - so rather than marking both ideas as delivered, we merge them. Then the likes & comments from both ideas are counted and it is considered Partially Delivered.
