Go to Permission Group Overrides and select one or more Jive User
Permission groups that you want to access all connected SharePoint
For each permission group you added in the previous step, Select

in this group will see when they connect a Jive Place to SharePoint. For
example, you can change the default settings for stream integration and
allowed SharePoint connections for these users.
In Allowed SharePoint Connections, select Only allow the following
connections so users can access only the SharePoint connections

Default buttons next to it. You can click Default to
prepopulate with this connection when users create Jive places.
Under Integration Options of Places and Sites, select the default behavior

Under User Mapping, select the mapping that makes sense for your environment.

the Domain and one that contains the username. For example, domain
