I have to retrieve documents from an external SharePoint system and put it in Appian. What is the best way to go for this.
Have you already looked into the SharePoint Document Integration Plug-in available on AppMarket?
If you'll are on 19.3, I would recommend going with OOTB connected system for sharepoint
Failing either of the above build a manual Connected System using Oauth2.0 and Microsoft Graph API (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/overview?view=graph-rest-1.0)
Yes we did try this plugin and it does not work in our case, it gives some error without any error information.
I am still on 19.2 so trying out other alternatives, if nothing worked then would have to upgrade it to 19.3 and go with the connected system option. Thanks for the suggestion.
Thanks Tim for this approach, will give it a shot if the OOTB connected system doesn't work.
It's relatively simple to setup once you have the config in your Azure portal and the Graph API gives you access to a huge number of actions in Office 365 so the custom approach allows for a lot of future development opportunities.
