SharePoint connection settings

While installing your SharePoint On-Prem add-on, you need to configure the add-on. To do this, use the following reference material to complete the ADFS settings and permissions form.

SharePoint Tenant Root URL 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, type
Allow SharePoint Connection Type Select one of the following options from the list:
Only Existing Site
Requires that users connect their Jive place to an existing SharePoint site when they create or configure their Jive place.
Only New Site
Requires that SharePoint creates a new site for Jive Places syncing to SharePoint.
Existing Site and New Site
Lets users choose to use an existing or create a new site when they create or configure their Jive place.
Authentication Settings

Claims or NTLM authentication method are available.

In Admin Username, you should provide the domain, backslash, site collection admin. For example, type\admin. In Password, type the password for this user in the password field. This admin must have at least Site Collection Administrator access in SharePoint. This user will serve as the service account for the Jive integration. Make sure it is well-secured because it will need to have access to all the site collections you create as part of the integration.

SharePoint everyone user group 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.
Sharepoint full control (admins) 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. For more information, see Setting up permissions.
Add New Site Collection list available for creating places If you want users creating a place to be restricted to specific site collections, click the + sign next to Add New Site Collection 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.
