Clappia SharePoint Integration: A Step-by-Step Guide

Clappia SharePoint Integration

This guide provides a step-by-step approach to integrate Clappia with SharePoint using OAuth. 

This integration will allow Clappia users to access, create and update SharePoint lists and items. Follow the steps below to integrate Clappia with SharePoint:

Step 1: Create OAuth App[2]

  1. First you will have to create an app in SharePoint that provides Clappia permission to access your list
  2. Go to https://[your domain] 


  1. Create your app using the above link kindly refer link [2]
  2. Note the generated  Client ID and Client Secret

Client ID: (93979341-6dcc-xxxxxx-xxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx)


Step 2: Provide Permissions for the App [2]

2.1. Go to https://[your domain]

2.2. Set the App ID as the Client ID obtained in Step 1

2.3. Add the following permission request XML:

<AppPermissionRequests AllowAppOnlyPolicy="true">

<AppPermissionRequest Scope="http://sharepoint/content/sitecollection/web/list" Right="FullControl" />

3.4. After obtaining the Access Token, get the ListItemEntityTypeFullName for your list [5]

Step 4: Use the Access Token to Run Required APIs[5]

4.1. Use the Access Token to run the required APIs

4.2. To get EntityName, use this API: https://[Domain name][site]/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('[list name]')?$select=ListItemEntityTypeFullName

4.3. Use the ListItemEntityTypeFullName to refer to the list for get items, create and update item operations

Step 5: Create a Clappia submission in Share point list via API[5]

5.1 Now that we have the access token and the entity name we can use that to send post requests to share point and create new entries in a list.  Follow the instructions provided below to achieve this. 

5.2 Create a “Rest-API” node in Clappia’s workflow for the app whose submissions you like to enter into sharepoint.

ServerURL: https://[your domain][Site name]/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('[list name]')/items


Method type: POST

Headers: {"Authorization":"Bearer access token","Accept":"application/json;odata=verbose","Content-Type":"application/json;odata=verbose","Content-type":"application/json"}

Body: {"Title": "{title}", "ROCC":"{ro_cc}","ROName":"{ro_name}" } 

-> The above variable and labels are unique to my app and should be edited so that your field variables are used and it must include all the field you need to sync with SharePoint here.
