Application ID

The Application ID can be found by navigating to the Capacity app that was just created and clicking into the Overview Menu.

Application Secret

  1. Select Certificates and Secrets from the Capacity app’s side menu bar.

  3. Click on the Expires dropdown menu and select Never Expires. Click “Save”.
  4. The Application Secret will display in the Value column and is a randomly generated string of text.
  5. Add a new URL to the Redirect URLs: Then click Save.
NOTE: The Application Secret will only be displayed once. Please be sure to store this in a safe location!

Directory ID

You can locate your Directory ID by navigating to the Azure Active Directory from your Microsoft Azure Portal, then select “Properties.”

STEP 3: Forward App IDs and SharePoint URL to Capacity

Once you have obtained your Application ID, Application Secret, and Directory ID please forward them to your Customer Success Manager along with your SharePoint URL. The URL looks like this: https://{{domain}} Additionally, if you'd like to limit your SharePoint search to specific sites, please provide your CSM with the site URLs

Once we have this information we our engineers can complete the integration.
