Configure SQList to use Web login (Office 365) authentication with SharePoint Online

This form of authentication is useful when connecting to SharePoint where dual factor authentication (2FA) is enabled on the account.

With this option, SQList will open a pop up window with the Office 365 login for for you to authenticate. This method can also be used with SharePoint On-Prem, but only to log in via Forms authentication.

Once you enter your username and password, SQList will store the authentication details for future use.

Important: the authentication details returned by SharePoint with this type of authentication are not permanent, they expires after a few hours/days depending on your SharePoint settings. For this reason, we do not recommend using this form of authentication as a permanent solution. 


To configure this type of authentication, select the option Web login (Office 365) in the connection details:

Once logged in, ensure the connection is successful.
