Deprecation of Microsoft OneDrive for Business - Legacy Editor Only Macro

Hi Atlassian Community,

On May 30, 2024, we will be deprecating the Microsoft OneDrive for Business Macro in Confluence Cloud’s legacy editor. This means that on May 30, 2024, all existing instances of the macros in legacy editor will stop working (learn more about the legacy vs. new editor here). But, don’t worry! You’ll still be able to embed OneDrive documents into Confluence in two ways:

1. Convert legacy pages with the OneDrive macro to the new editor, where they’ll be automatically updated into Smart Links that provide the same functionality. Once the macro is deprecated, any existing instances of it that have already been inserted in the legacy editor will display a message suggesting that you convert to the new editor. We highly recommend previewing your page before converting.

2. Browse the Marketplace for alternative vendor macro solutions.

Moving forward, whenever you want to display OneDrive content in the new editor, simply paste the link into the new editor, which should convert it into a Smart Link, providing different options on how to have it displayed.

Hi there,

Good news!

For the time being it seems that this smart link integration for Microsoft One Drive is only working with the method "allow users to register applications".
Do you have any plan to allow our admin to connect the app once ?
This is part of our internal policies, and this point is blocking us using this smartlink feature for OneDrive.

Something like the app Team Files allow :(cf method 1) https://ikuteam.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/IAD/pages/3257668424/SharePoint+Permissions+Setup

Thanks !

Hi @Patrice Champet , just wanted to confirm your description of (1) Today's state and (2) Desired behavior. Is the following correct?

Today's state:

If someone hasn't connected their OneDrive account to their Atlassian account, and they paste a link, they would see something like this:

In order for that user to be able to Connect their OneDrive account, "Users can register applications" setting in Azure Directory needs to be enabled.

Desired behavior

Since your organization has policies that do not allow you to turn on this Users can register applications setting, you are hoping that a OneDrive admin can make a one-time connection between OneDrive & Atlassian, such that OneDrive smartlinks work for any user in Confluence without them needing to authenticate individually?

Hi @David Michelson 

Yes, this is the expected behavior.

It will unlock the integration for our company, but I can imagine that some other company may have the same restrictions.
Having both choices is something that we usually have on apps in AD.

It is something that you can change ?🤞
