Create a Replication Link to SharePoint (App method)

After you have added TeamSlide as an app on your SharePoint site, you can move on to the next step in the process by connecting to SharePoint in the TeamSlide Web Portal. In order to make your SharePoint content searchable, you’ll need to complete two more steps in the replication process – establish a replication link and create a replication task. In this article, we will walk you through how to create a replication link to SharePoint.

Establish a replication link

Note that this process creates a connection to a specific site in SharePoint. If you’d like to connect with multiple sites or with other content systems (e.g. OneDrive, Box, Google Drive), you can create multiple links. In addition, we use the SharePoint app method to connect to your SharePoint site – please first register TeamSlide as an app in your SharePoint site.

  1. Log into your TeamSlide Web Portal and select Content Replication in the main menu.

  2. Select Add replication link from the top menu.

  3. Complete the replication link details:

    1. Display name: Provide a meaningful name. If you plan on connecting to multiple SharePoint sites, please list the site name here (e.g. SharePoint SiteName).

    2. Repository type: Select SharePoint (app).

    3. SharePoint site URL: Enter your SharePoint site URL (e.g.

    4. User account: Select the account that will own the slides. This user will be notified by email if there any errors or warnings associated with the replication link. Note that if you want to later delete this account, you’ll need to transfer ownership to another account.

    5. Application ID: Enter your SharePoint app Client Id.

    6. Application secret: Enter your SharePoint app Client Secret.

    7. Click Save.

    8. Now click the button next to Access token.

  4. You’ll be taken to your SharePoint site where you’ll be asked to trust the application. Please click Trust It.

  5. After a few seconds, the confirmation page will close (or you can close it manually).

  6. You’ll notice an access token is now listed on the Add replication link page.

  7. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save again.

If you ran into any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Congrats! You’ve created the link to your SharePoint site. You’ll now need to continue to the second step in the replication process and establish a Replication task.
