SAML Support for OneDrive sync Client SP19 OnPrem
Our SP19 Server do the authentication against the Azure AD (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/saas-apps/sharepoint-on-premises-tutorial).
We configured the WebApp to use a Trusted Identity provider. So we use SAML 1.1 an no WinAuth (NTLM).
Reason behind this ist access for external users and integration of OIDC OAuth 2.0 Apps on Prem.
When we try to sync files from SP19 OnPrem we get this message "There was a problem connecting to OneDrive"
This is a no go for our Migration Project. There are about 25’000 Users which are affected!
Thanks for voging:-)
Same issue and no solution or workaround from MS support :(
Only thing I could find is to use the good old Groove client.
Still no SAML support in OneDrive for Business Next Gen Client!? We really need this. I have a customer who hasn't been able to securely sync OneDrive content from external locations for half a year.
over 200.000 users in our company RE affected by this missing feature in OneDrive
We are facing the same challenge. Because the Onedrive client is lacking SAML support we are unable to let Intune managed devices sync from our on-prem Sharepoint 2019 farm. The alternative route through Azure AD App proxy isn't working either because AAD pre-auth isn't supported at the Onedrive client. Conditional access is a security requirement from the organisation.
