SharePoint Online

Learn how to connect to SharePoint online (Office 365)


Connecting to SharePoint online is fast to set up and fully supported in Movebot. Movebot uses the Microsoft Graph API, which is the recommended method for connecting to SharePoint and OneDrive.

There are two different authentication methods available with SharePoint Online, Delegate Access or Application Access. The Movebot team recommends you use the default Delegate Access method, as it's simpler to configure and supports Ludicrous mode.

Configuring Delegate access involves a standard OAuth login, and Application Access requires creating a custom application in your Azure Domain.

To use Application Access see Other Connectors


For best results when connecting to SharePoint online in Movebot using Delegate Access, we recommend the following permissions:

  • A Global Administrator service account in Azure

  • The Global Administrator account is licensed

  • The Global Administrator account has access to the sites you are migrating

  • You have the SharePoint domain/hostname on hand

If you are unable to connect as a Global Administrator, contact us for alternative configuration options at
