  • 1. How to sync your local file system with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud 90 180 270 When you are moving to the Microsoft Office 365 or SharePoint Online cloud, there are a lot of reasons to keep your local file system, for example: to edit files with non cloud-based applications or legacy systems to work offline and with increased performance for integration into local business processes for compliance reasons as some kind of local backup (or to manage "cloud" backup with common backup software) But you dont have to miss the benefits of the cloud. You can synchronize selected parts of your local file system with a SharePoint library in the cloud, bi-directional if required. This presentation shows how this works step-by-step with the Layer2 Cloud Connector for Office 365 and SharePoint 2010. "I am thoroughly impressed with your software. It is an excellent concept, has extremely comprehensive functionality and is easy to configure.“ Brent Seeney, Information Systems Support Manager at INEX Independent Extrusions Limited 360Cloud Connector Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud www.layer2.de
  • 2. How to sync your local file system with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud 90 180 270 Step 1: Locate your source file system directory ​Assuming you have a local file system like this, e.g. some folders to sync with Office 365. You can filter file names or types later on in data source setup The file system data source is recursive by default (including subfolders) 360Cloud Connector Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud www.layer2.de
  • 3. How to sync your local file system with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud 90 180 Step 2: Setup your connection 270 Setup a new connection definition for file system to cloud replication, unidirectional in this example: There is a bi-directional option available, if required later on, to sync back changes done in the SharePoint library back to file system. There is an overwrite option to use for cleanup, if your library already contains some data. Do not enable scheduling at this point. Please enable scheduling later on, when all tests are passed. 360Cloud Connector Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud www.layer2.de
  • 4. How to sync your local file system with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud 90 180 Step 3: Setup your data source 270 Setup a data source for file system to cloud replication: Select the Layer2 FileSystem Provider as Data Provider. Enter the source directory (root) "Test2" with the notation Directory=127.0.01C$Test2 as connection string. Directory: Root path where the files will be read from (mandatory). UserName / Password: Optional credentials to connect to target path. FilenameFilter: Optional search pattern for filtering files by name or extension. Parameter accept standard windows file search pattern like *, ?. 360Cloud Connector Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud www.layer2.de
  • 5. How to sync your local file system with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud 90 180 Step 4: Setup your data destination 270 Setup a data destination for file system to cloud replication: Create a SharePoint library manually in the Office 365 cloud with columns required. Select the Layer2 SharePoint CSOM Provider to communicate with the cloud using web services. Setup the connection string for example as: Url=https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/sites/mysite/; List=myList; Authentication=Office365; User=myUser.online@layer2.onmicrosoft.com; Pass=myPassword There are other authentication methods available, if required. See CC manual for this. 360 The URL goes to the site that hosts the library.Cloud Connector Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud www.layer2.de
  • 6. How to sync your local file system with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud 90 180 Step 5: Setup your meta data column mapping 270 Setup your meta data column mapping for file system to cloud replication: You dont have to map the file content itself, this is done automatically by the provider. You can map file system meta data as Created / Modified to the corresponding or additional SharePoint columns. Please be careful to map author data to the SharePoint meta data fields. That will fail in most cases with the cloud because of different tokens in both worlds. It is planned for future versions to provide translation. At this time you can map e.g. author to some additional SharePoint text field like "Original Author". You have the original file location path available in the FilePathCopy field to map to some additional field on SharePoint, for example SourcePath. 360Cloud Connector Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud www.layer2.de
  • 7. How to sync your local file system with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud 90 180 Step 6: Run connection and access data from everywhere 270 When all connection settings are done and verified successfully, go back to the configuration settings and run the connection first time. After all files are transferred, you can benefit from your local data replicated to the cloud. In case of errors while replicating first time, please see the log section. Please increase log level for more details, if required. Replication can take some time, depending on amount of data and bandwidth. See progress bar. Later on, only changed items are replicated, this is much faster compared to initial replication. To setup automatic background replication, e.g. every 24 hours go to connection settings again and enable scheduling. Make sure that the Cloud Connector Windows Service is up and running. 360Cloud Connector Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud www.layer2.de
