SharePoint Modern Authentication

Using the Sensitive Data Manager Agent version 11.8.2 or later provides support for SharePoint on premise and online Modern Authentication.  This is a more secure way than using Basic Authentication.  The following Microsoft guide provides guidance to setup the SharePoint app-only principal to use Modern Authentication with other technology integrations.

You will first need to grant access using SharePoint App-Only by following either the Microsoft documentation or by the following.

​Navigate to your SharePoint site using the following URL to generate the required Client Id and Client Secret -  https://contoso.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx​

  • ​Click both the Generate buttons to create the Client Id and Client Secret​​
  • Add the appropriate information in the following fields.
    • Example
      SharePoint App

      App Domain:

      Redirect URI:


  • If you receive a SharePoint permissions access error when accessing the https://contoso.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx URL then use the below URL instead.
    • https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx
As indicated in the below image:
  • Input the generated Client Id: into the Spirion Identity Provider Id field.
  • Input the generated Client Secret: into the Spirion Password field.
    • ​​*Note – the username is not needed and will result in error if added.
