MyWorkDrive 6.4 Server or higher Required:

OneDrive is a web-based collaboration and document management platform by Microsoft which can be integrated with MyWorkDrive for file access and storage services. OneDrive File Share Access allows MyWorkDrive Servers to connect users to their OneDrive storage making it available via the MyWorkDrive Web Browser, Desktop and Mobile Clients side by side with SMB based file shares and SharePoint storage.

Enable MyWorkDrive Shared App Registration

The default option utilizes our MyWorkDrive Cloudflare Integration and our shared MyWorkDrive Azure AD App Registration. With the default option the customer does not need to create their own Azure AD App Registration or create a Public Web Address to the internal MyWorkDrive Server. To enable OneDrive Access simply enable our default option in Integrations, Storage Providers – OneDrive.

Enable OneDrive Access

Enable OneDrive Access in Settings: OneDrive Access

Create OneDrive Share

With OneDrive Access configured in integrations and enabled in settings, create a share using OneDrive as the Storage Type and select the users or groups who are assigned access in MyWorkDrive:

Allowed Tenant ID

We recommend all customers approve and restrict which allowed Azure AD Tenant ID’s are enabled for OneDrive Access. The Allowed Tenant ID option provides 2 capabilities:

  1. Approval of the Azure AD Application for use by all users in the organization
  2. Restricting login to the Application to only users with accounts in the internal organization (custom app registrations only).

After Entering the Tenant ID click Approve. Login with a global administrator with rights on your Azure AD to approve applications for your organization:


Accept and grant Permissions for your organization:

The link in the first paragraph shows you how to find your tenant, you may also be able to use a site like to obtain your tenant ID.

Setup Custom Azure AD App Registration

As an alternative to our our shared MyWorkDrive Azure AD App Registration, MyWorkDrive supports creating a custom Azure AD App.

Each organization will need their Azure AD Global Admin to create an Azure AD App registration.

Create a new Azure AD App Registration in the same Azure AD as your user’s Office 365 Subscription OneDrive Account. This will be used to allow the MyWorkDrive server to connect to OneDrive on behalf of your users.

On, login using Global Admin Account. Bring up Azure Active Directory:

Click App Registrations: Create New Registration

Provide a Name, Selected Account Types and insert your public MyWorkDrive URL with subsite added of /GraphApiTokenPage.aspx

Click Register

API Permissions

Click API permissions, Add Graph API Delegated Permissions: Microsoft Graph – Files.ReadWrite.All, offline_access, openid,Sites.ReadWrite.All, User.Read

Click to Grant admin Consent for your company.

Create Client Secret

Click Certificates & Secrets: New client secret

Note and Calendar Secret Expiration Date as it will need to be regenerated at that time and updated on all MyWorkDrive Servers.

Copy the Client Secret Value (not the secret ID): Keep this backed up and secured as it will only display briefly.

Click Overview: Copy the Application (client) ID: Retain this value for use in the MyWorkDrive Admin Panel.

Copy the Directory (tenant) ID: Retain this value for use in the MyWorkDrive Admin Panel.

*Note the Client Secret Expiration – this will need to be renewed before it expires and updated on each MyWorkDrive Server in the future.
