When a SharePoint environment uses multi-factor authentication (MFA), SharePoint users must provide a dynamically-generated code to access SharePoint. InfoBurst can authenticate to a SharePoint MFA environment using App-Only authentication.

SharePoint Configuration

SharePoint can be configured to allow InfoBurst to bypass MFA using App-Only authentication. This requires SharePoint to generate a Client ID and Client Secret to be used by InfoBurst. SharePoint must also be configured to allow InfoBurst access to write to and read from the target SharePoint site(s).

Client ID/Secret generation and access configuration are detailed in the following Microsoft article. Please review this documentation with your SharePoint administrator before making any changes to ensure the changes are supported and conform to your SharePoint security requirements.
