You need to perform the following steps in Jive to install and configure the
SP-Online & 365 add-on.
As Jive admin, select your avatar > Add-ons.
Look for the Jive for Office 365 Integration add-on under the Installed tab. If
it isn't in that tab, it hasn't been installed yet. Look for it in the Available
tab and click Install if it is there. If it isn't
visible, you may need to contact Support to obtain and upload the package files.
Navigate to Storage Management > Add Integration.
Choose Office 365 Storage Integration.
Provide a name for the integration. This is the name of the external storage
users will select when they create a group and choose to connect it to a
specific SharePoint site collection.
The Edit Instance Settings dialog opens, but if it doesn't, click Edit Settings.
Provide the information Jive will use to connect with SharePoint Online:
In the SharePoint's tenant root URL field, type
the URL of the SharePoint server. You can find this URL by navigating to
one of the sites in SharePoint you're planning to link to Jive, and copy
the path up to the first forward slash. For example, if your site is
located at https://mytenant.sharepoint.com/sites/site1/, type
In the Jive Connect token for this SharePoint
tenant field, provide the access token that was created
using the Jive-Office integration app you installed on the SharePoint
side. You can see the token by clicking on the app from the site
collection page in SharePoint Online that was created to contain the
Warning: The app inherits the permissions of any user who
clicks on the app. Do not click the app unless you are logged into
SharePoint online as the Jive-SharePoint integration user as
described in Setting Up the SharePoint Side.
(Optional) In the SharePoint "everyone" user
group field, type the name of the Everyone permissions
group in SharePoint. If you specify this group, the users included will
have read-write access to all content created in an Open group in Jive,
even if they have not been added to the Jive group. This saves admins
the work of having to add members to Open group content to grant access
on the SharePoint side. (Secret, Private, and Members-Only groups
restrict content on both sides of the integration according to the
Jive-side group settings, regardless of whether you supply Everyone
information here.) See Jive and SharePoint Permissions
for more information.
(Optional) In the SharePoint "full control
(admins)" user group field, type the name of the Full
Control admins permissions group in SharePoint. This group will have
access to all SharePoint-connected groups in Jive. The best practice is
to create a restricted group of admins in this principal who will be
able to access all the Jive places and Jive-linked site collections. See
Jive and SharePoint Permissions
for more information.
If you want users creating a place to be restricted to specific site
collections, click the + sign under
Site collections list available for creating
places and type the location of a site collection. You
can add more site collections by clicking + again. Users can choose from
the list of site collections when creating a group. Note that as the
user configuring the add-on, you must have access to these site
collections, or you won't be able to complete the configuration and will
see a configuration error.
Specifying at least one site collection is the
best practice, because it limits the SharePoint locations where
place creators can create sites, and also prevents errors in
specifying a URL. If you specify one or more locations, users are
not prompted to supply the URL of a site collection.
Click Validate Authorization.
Your storage instance is now connected. Click Save
When users create new groups in your community, they will now be able to
select the integration you just created as the external storage location. For
each connected group, Jive creates a new site under the site collection URL you
