Integrate Collaboration Hub in a Microsoft SharePoint installation

Note

If you are using our On Premises Edition, follow the instructions in the Administrator Guide.

Important
  • Integrating Signavio Collaboration Hub with Microsoft SharePoint 2013 requires your SharePoint system to support TLS version 1.1 or 1.2. Learn how to activate TLS 1.1/1.2 support at https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt773991.aspx .
  • Since Microsoft stopped supporting Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and 2010 several years ago, we stopped supporting Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and 2010 in 2017.

Depending on your integration scenario, you can choose between Certificate-based and Windows Azure/Active Directory-based authentication.

  • Certificate-based authentication

    The Signavio SharePoint App authenticates as a "guest user" against Signavio, using the Signavio security certificate. Every diagram published in your Signavio Collaboration Hub will be visible for every user who has access to the respective Microsoft SharePoint page(s).

  • Windows Azure/Active Directory-based authentication

    The Signavio SharePoint App authenticates as the accessing Active Directory user against Signavio via LDAP. The access rights of each Active Directory user and user group can be configured in the Signavio Explorer.

In case you use SharePoint Server 2013/2016 , proceed at Integrating Collaboration Hub with Microsoft SharePoint 2013/2016 to learn how to establish the integration with either certificate-based or Active Directory-based authentication.

In case you use SharePoint Online , proceed at Integrating Collaboration Hub with Microsoft SharePoint Online to learn how to establish the integration with either certificate-based or Active Directory-based authentication.

In case you experience problems when setting up the integration with Microsoft SharePoint, see Troubleshooting the Microsoft SharePoint integration
