Microsoft SharePoint

The SharePoint collector can be used to listen on SharePoint lists, document libraries or task list. The collector itself gets deployed as a SharePoint solution package (WSP).

The deployment of the WSP can be executed by using the following PowerShell statements:

Add Solution to SharePoint
Add-SPSolution -LiteralPath C:\temp\Sitrion.ONE.SharePoint.wsp


Deploy the solution
Install-SPSolution -Identity Sitrion.ONE.SharePoint.wsp -GACDeployment

Activate needed features
Install-SPFeature -path Sitrion.ONE.SharePoint_ONEInstaller\Feature.xml
Install-SPFeature -path Sitrion.ONE.SharePoint_CardPublisherSite\Feature.xml
Install-SPFeature -path Sitrion.ONE.SharePoint_CardPublisherFarm\Feature.xml

Once you've executed the deployment, you can do the initial configuration.

Through the deployment you got the ability to create a new Service Application called "Sitrion ONE Service"

Once you created the service application, you've to configure your ONE tenant settings, mainly the Company Password and Company-ID.

You can find both values on the "Get started" section on one.sitrion.com

The environment is by default: https://one.sitrion.com should there be a case, that your SharePoint environment can't connect straight to the Cloud. You can use our Card Webservice as a bridge/proxy between your OnPrem environment and the Cloud.

When you saved this one time configuration, you can go ahead and configure the lists, you would like to use for the SharePoint collector.

The list itself can be configured by using the "Sitrion ONE Card Publisher Settings" in the given Site Settings, where the list itself is located (should the Sitrion ONE Card Publisher Settings not be available here, please check if the Site Collection Feature for the Sitrion ONE collector, "Sitrion ONE Card Publisher", is active).

If you haven't configured any list yet, you'll see the following screen, where you can create a "New Connection". 

In the connection settings, you

1. Select a SharePoint List
2. Define the events on which the collector should executed
3. Define the Message Type (the Message Type is the identifier for the Card you've to build with the AppBuilder)
4. Select the needed columns and save the selection.

From now, evertime when you modify something in the list, the ONE collector gets executed on the given event, and sends the data directly to the ONE cloud.

The cloud itself will check if a Card is available for the metadata, for the given MessageType, you just send. If a card is available, it'll execute the "Translate" method in the card and will provide the card to the given users.

When you've saved a connection, you can modify it by using the Edit button and also have the option to "Generate Sample Data". The sample data is helpful when you start building the Card in AppBuilder.
