How to sync your local SharePoint with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud Cloud Connector www.layer2.de It's fairly easy to build extranets for your clients, vendors or other business partners with SharePoint Online or Office 365, e.g. for collaboration or mobile access. But take care about new data islands! You can easily connect some pre-selected parts of your local SharePoint intranet with the new extranet in the cloud using the Cloud Connector for Office 365 and SharePoint Online. You can replicate lists and document libraries – 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

Step 1: Locate your document library source (intranet)

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 . Step 2: Setup your connection

The view " ToExtranet " is given as data source in connection string. Windows authentication is used to connect to the Intranet . See CC manual for other. You don't have to enter a primary key, SharePoint document IDs are used by default. Please verify all settings before save. Please note: Intranet-to-intranet or cloud-to-cloud connections are supported as well. Fig.: Connection definition for Filesystem to cloud replication, unidirectional in this example. Step 3: Setup your data source (intranet)

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=Extranet; Authentication=Office365; User=myUser@myDomain.onmicrosoft.com ; Pass= myPassword There are other authentication methods available, if required. See CC manual for this. The URL goes to the site that hosts the library. Fig.: Connection definition for Filesystem to cloud replication, unidirectional in this example. Step 4: Setup your data destination (extranet)

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 ". Fig.: Connection definition for Filesystem to cloud replication, unidirectional in this example. Step 5: Setup your column mapping

How to sync your local SharePoint with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud Providing consistent enterprise data in SharePoint can solve many issues with the cloud Cloud Connector www.layer2.de 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. Fig.: Connection definition for Filesystem to cloud replication, unidirectional in this example. Step 6: Run connection and access data from everywhere

No access to corporate network from outside. Almost any corporate data source can be replicated. Sync can be done bi-directional (if supported by driver and query). In the cloud all features of lists and libraries are fully available, e.g. search, lookups, change notifications, workflow, enterprise metadata etc. Fig.: Connection definition for Filesystem to cloud replication, unidirectional in this example.
