Auto mapping
Auto Mapping is the feature of KONNEKT, that automatically maps all SharePoint Online sites & document libraries into the users Windows File Explorer (and other file dialogues). Only sites & libraries, the user has access to, are mapped.
Administrators can control this feature on two levels:
  1. 1.
    Site level
  2. 2.
    Library level
KONNEKT updates the mappings every 60 minutes.

Site scope

This policy is applicable to version 2.0 and above
By default KONNEKT will map all team and communication sites, the user has access to. Private channels of Teams are not in the default site scope.
If you are fine with that, you do not need to use this policy.

Policy Definition

  • Policy Name (ADMX): Sharepoint Sites Query
This policy enables you to define the query string used to find SharePoint sites.
The site query needs to be expressed in KQL. You can find general KQL documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/keyword-query-language-kql-syntax-reference
You can test your KQL site query at this SharePoint Online URL:
https://<YourTenantName>.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/osssearchresults.aspx
In the following paragraphs, you can find some examples for KQL query strings.

Default

If you do not configure this policy, KONNEKT will use the following default KQL query:
(webtemplate:STS OR webtemplate:GROUP OR webtemplate:SITEPAGEPUBLISHING) AND (contentclass=STS_Site OR contentclass=STS_Web)
This will map all team and communication sites, the user has access to. Private channels of Teams are not in the default site scope

Examples

Sites whitelisting

Filter on site name/title
Note: To show all sites with <Leadership> in the name, use the operator (:) instead of (=) by title

Sites whitelisting using * operator

Filter on site name/title using (*) operator
Note: We do not recommend combining the (=) operator together with asterisk (*) when you do exact matching. Instead, use the (:) operator with (*)

Sites blacklisting

Exclude sites per site name/title

Teams private channels

Add Microsoft Teams private channels
