App Permissions (Cloud)

Required permissions

In order to work correctly the app has to be able to access SharePoint content in the context of the current user. Therefore the app will request the following permissions:

PermissionTypeDescriptionWhy do we need this?Admin consent required
Microsoft Graph
  • User.Read
DelegatedAllows users to sign-in to the app and allows to read the profile of signed-in users. It also allows to read basic company information of signed-in users.Used exclusively for login purposes to login the user to Microsoft services.No
  • Sites.ReadWrite.All
DelegatedAllows to edit or delete documents and list items in all site collections on behalf of the signed-in user.Used for querying SharePoint sites, files and lists, as well as allowing operations like uploading files to SharePoint document libraries from Confluence.No

Please also have a look at the official permission reference from Microsoft to get detailed information about the permission handling.

The SharePoint Connector for Confluence is a browser only app, therefore giving consent to the app will not allow it to perform operations on behalf of the app but only on behalf of the user currently logged in. Permissions are delegated therefore users will only be able to perform what they are allowed to. (same Permissions as SharePoint will be applied)

No data is stored or processed offline by any means by our app.

Consent to the app

When you use the app for the first time or the required permissions of the app have changed a dialog will be shown where you can see all delegated permissions that the app requires to work.

You have to grant these permissions in order to get the app working.

You are able to remove these permissions at any time!

If your current user is an administrator you will see the additional checkbox "Consent on behalf of your organization".

Checking this will consent to the app for every user that is part of your organization. In this case the individual users don't have to grant the permissions on their own.

Remove app consent

If you want to remove the app permissions for your current user you can follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to using a browser of your choice
  2. Search for the app "SharePoint Connector for Confluence"
  3. Remove the app using the context menu
