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.

1. 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.
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

Example 1

Control which sites should be available under KONNEKT
Query String to map only the sites "Give" and "Contoso":
1
(webtemplate:STS OR webtemplate:GROUP OR webtemplate:SITEPAGEPUBLISHING) AND (contentclass=STS_Site OR contentclass=STS_Web) AND (Title="Give" OR Title="Contoso")
Copied!
To apply the policy you have to restart KONNEKT

Example 2

Add teams private channels automatically to KONNEKT
Query String:
1
(webtemplate:STS OR webtemplate:GROUP OR webtemplate:SITEPAGEPUBLISHING OR webtemplate:TEAMCHANNEL) AND (contentclass=STS_Site OR contentclass=STS_Web)
Copied!
Do not forget to restart KONNEKT to apply the policy

Example 3

Map SharePoint sites and subsites under KONNEKT
Query string:
1
(webtemplate:STS OR webtemplate:GROUP OR webtemplate:SITEPAGEPUBLISHING) AND (contentclass=STS_Site OR contentclass=STS_Web)
Copied!
Do not forget to restart KONNEKT to apply the policy
Result
you can change the site query string to fit your requirements to show:
  • all subsites
  • only specific subsites
  • all sites and specific subsites
  • specific sites and specific subsites
  • and so on

Example 4

Map all sites and libraries except specific sites (and their libraries)
Query string to exclude Site01 and Site02:

(webtemplate:STS OR webtemplate:GROUP OR webtemplate:SITEPAGEPUBLISHING) AND (NOT (SiteTitle="Site01" OR SiteTitle="Site02"))
Copied!
Do not forget to restart KONNEKT to apply the policy
