There are several ways to apply the policy

  1. 1.
    via GPO, see settings via GPO
  2. 2.
    pushing policies via Intune, see settings for Intune Managed Devices
  3. 3.
    manually by adding the key in the registry under machine or user registry settings
We highly recommend to use 1. or 2., since this policy has several components.

Manual setting in registry

You do not need this, if you use GPO or Intune management.
The policy consists of two components in the registry:
  1. 1.
    Value (activate the feature)
  2. 2.
    Key with value per mapping (describe every single mapping)

1. Value

  • Value name: SharepointSites
  • Value type: REG_DWORD
  • Value data: 1 (to activate the feature)
  • Value stored in:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\GlueckKanja\Konnekt or
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\GlueckKanja\Konnekt

2. Key with value per mapping

  • Key name: SharepointSites
  • Key stored in:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\GlueckKanja\Konnekt or
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\GlueckKanja\Konnekt
Under this key, one value/data entry has to be generated per mapping:
  • Value name: equals Value data
  • Value type: REG_SZ
  • Value data: see Policy definition.
  • Value stored in:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\GlueckKanja\Konnekt\SharepointSites or
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\GlueckKanja\Konnekt\SharepointSites
