  1. Cloud Customers Connecting to SharePoint Online - This configuration had been certified by frevvo. Follow these steps:
    1. Configure Live Forms as a SharePoint Add-in
    2. Configure SharePoint for your Live Forms tenant.
    3. Connect your Forms/Flows using the SharePoint wizard.

  2. In-house Customers connecting to SharePoint Online - This configuration has been certified by frevvo.   Follow these steps:


    frevvo only supports/certifies the SharePoint Connector running in the Apache Tomcat container.

    1. Configure Live Forms as a SharePoint Add-in
    2. Download the SharePoint Connector. Rename it to sharepoint.war. Copy it to the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\webapps folder
    3. Configure SharePoint for your Live Forms tenant
    4. Connect your Forms/Flows using the SharePoint wizard.

  3. In-house customers using SharePoint On-premise - this configuration is supported but not certified.
    1. Customers using SharePoint On-premise also need an Office 365 SharePoint Online account. This is necessary to obtain an authorization token. There is no data transfer from the SharePoint On-premise to SharePoint Online.
    2. Customers are responsible for configuring the On-premise installation and the integration with SharePoint Online.
    3. The On-premise version of SharePoint must be version 2013+.
    4. Refer to this Microsoft website for information about how to use Office 365 to allow 
      to authenticate.

  4. Live Forms Cloud customers connecting to SharePoint On-premise - This configuration is supported but considered unlikely as SharePoint On-premise requires your On-premise SharePoint to be exposed to the Cloud.
    1. Customers are responsible for configuring the On-premise installation and it's exposure to the Cloud. 


  1. Login to

    as the tenant admin

  2. Click the Edit Tenant link.

  3. Click the  blue arrow to expand the SharePoint section.
  4. Enter the Connector URL. - This URL is needed if you are using 

    in the cloud and installing the connector locally. Enter the URL where your
    installation that is configured for SharePoint is located. This URL must use the https protocol.

    The URL in the Connector URL field will override the connector URL that is specified in the configuration property in the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\ file. In some cases you can leave this field blank.


    The default value is shown below:

  5. Enter the Client Id and the Client Secret that you saved in Step 1 into the respective fields.

  6. Enter the SharePoint Domain Name e.g. <Your SharePoint tenant name> - there is a dot between the SharePoint tenant name and

    1. Navigate to https://<tenant> - change the <tenant> to the name of your SharePoint tenant - e.g.

    2. Find your registered application in the list and and look at the App Identifier column. The unique identifier after the @-sign in the App Identifier is the app realm and must be entered in the Realm field.

  8. Click Submit
  9. Browse http://<your server:port>/sharepoint/health (replace <your server:port> with your frevvo server:port) to check the status of the connector. If the connector is up and running, you will see { "status" : "UP" }.
  10. Proceed to Connect Forms/Flows with the Save to SharePoint wizard

Step 3 - Connect Forms and Flows with the SharePoint wizard


  1. Login as a 

    designer user. If you are In-House
    connecting to Sharepoint in the cloud, use the URL https://<server>:<SSL port>/frevvo/web/login. Example: https://localhost:8443/frevvo/web/login. Port 8443 is the default.

      SharePoint add-in.

      Click Trust It to authenticate and grant permission to 
      . You will not see the trust screen on subsequent logins. The wizard will display.

      • We recommend that you create a separate user in SharePoint for frevvo forms connection, and use that user while configuring the Save to SharePoint wizard in frevvo forms. This frevvo specific SharePoint user always remains active and eliminates issues if the designer user configured your forms to submit to SharePoint using their own SharePoint login and then leaves the company.
      •  At least one designer user must also be a SharePoint user with the correct privileges to provide consent when invoking the Save to SharePoint wizard if your tenant is configured with the Azure SAML Security Manager .

  6. You can set up a single Document Action to write to multiple places (SharePoint Library and List). Add a route for the second destination by clicking the Route 2 icon.

    1. Select a format for the Snapshot to be saved in SharePoint. The choices are: PDF, PNG or JPEG. If you do not check the Snapshot checkbox under the Destination Type section, you can leave this field empty. PDF is the default.
    2. Enter the site URL - this is the SharePoint site or subsite containing the destination e.g. - Remember this URL must specify the https protocol. This value is read in from the SharePoint tenant configuration screen for Route 1.

    3. Set up the first location (route) where you want to save your files in SharePoint. SharePoint destinations can be a Library (and optionally a Folder), or List. Select Library or List from the Destination Type dropdown.

    4. Enter the server relative path of the folder within the library. For example, for folder 'test' in library 'mylib', enter /mylib/test.
    5. Select a Content Type from the dropdown. The wizard automatically pulls the content type choices from your SharePoint site. The Content Type determines the available metadata column names for mapping. For example, if the destination is a Document list you would see Item as a choice for the Content Type. This means your submission is saved as a new item on your SharePoint list. Document Libraries show the Content Type.

    6. Check the types of files to be saved to the selected destination. The choices are:
      1. Data - include the

        XML document

      2. Snapshot - include a snapshot of your form/flow in the format selected in the Send Snapshot field

      3. Attachments - include attachments uploaded to your forms/flows. The wizard automatically lists the Upload Controls in your form/flow by name when Files is checked. The attachments for the selected Upload Controls will be saved in the configured destination. 

      4. Gen Forms(PDF) - this checkbox appears if you have mapped PDFs associated with your form/flow e.g. W-4 and I-9 filled out by a new employee. Check it to send all mapped PDFs to SharePoint.
        Image RemovedImage Added
    7. Map the Control Names in your form/flow to the column names in your SharePoint destination. The wizard will populate the Column Name dropdown with all the columns in the destination but a maximum of 15 controls can be mapped.


      When mapping Message controls with templates to the SharePoint Connector, the Save Value property should be checked.

  7. Click Submit.

  8. Click the save and test icon to save the form/flow and bring up Test mode popup.

  9. If you configure a second Route, clicking the Clear Route button removes the information for Route 2 only.


At least one designer user that is going to be connecting forms/flows to SharePoint with the Save to SharePoint wizard must also be a SharePoint user with the correct privileges to provide consent if your tenant is configured with the Azure SAML Security Manager.
