The Test Connection from Sharepoint to Confluence works, but the Test Connection from Confluence to Sharepoint gives the following error:


This is a known bug for versions of Sharepoint Connector earlier than 1.2 - CSI-547.

When using Basic Authentication, the username entered in Sharepoint admin panel in Confluence must be "" format, rather than "DOMAIN\User" format.  If the name is in "DOMAIN\User" format, the "DOMAIN" portion will be stripped when it reaches Sharepoint, causing the authentication to fail.


Fixed in a newer version

This article relates to a problem that has been fixed in a more recent version of the SharePoint Connector.

Try downloading the latest version from the SharePoint Connector Download Centre and if the problem persists, contact our support team.
