Watson Explorer Plugin Connector ( connector-io-sharepoint ) to Support "SharePoint Online w/ ADFS on-premises"

Currently , the io-sharepoint connector only supports :

  • SharePoint Server w/ ADFS on-premises
  • SharePoint Online

Our organization, Fidelity, needs support for "SharePoint Online w/ ADFS on-premises" . Currently, WEX does NOT have support for the above option / feature.

 The reason for this request is that Fidelity Organization is moving all the Doc's to the cloud in beginning of 2018. Some departments have migrated already and we have put in a temporary solution ( local file server ) to get by this current issue, I.e., we are crawling their Doc's on file server a temp work around; we can't crawl the same Doc's that have been pushed to the cloud. More Organizations / departments are migrating to 2018 January,February & 2nd qtrs to the cloud. It is utmost importance that we get this feature as it will get worse in 2018 and beyond.

This is going to have a huge impact to our customers if we can't crawl "SharePoint Online w/ ADFS on-premises". It'll effect all of search functionality. 

 If there is anything else I can do, please let me know. 

Teresa McKinnon from IBM, suggested that I include the ticket # PMR 63813,L6Q,000  in this request.

    This is planned. However, we cannot commit the timing while the dev team is working on this actively.

    This feature is also highly interesting for Lufthansa. Are there already plans for this feature to be implemented?

    Unfortunately, there are no plans for beta version. This request is planned to be included in the next major fix pack for v11 (target late Q2'18).

    The customer, Fidelity Investments, is willing to test a beta version in the 1st quarter for IBM.  They require this support in the connector as more organizations with in Fidelity are moving to the cloud SharePoint.  Please, consider this request high priority.
