Authenticate User’s Clarizen Account with SharePoint

There are two ways to authenticate Clarizen users in SharePoint:

  • By editing the Integration Settings in user s details. Once the integration settings are configured, users are not prompted to authenticate with SharePoint when attempting to open SharePoint content from Clarizen. 
    Note: You can also automate the process using a workflow rule.
  • At the run-time, when a user clicks SharePoint content in Clarizen, the user is prompted to enter their SharePoint credentials. Users are required to authenticate only when they access SharePoint content from Clarizen for the first time.

  2. In the Personal Details section > click Edit for the Integration Settings property.
