webdav username/password and SharePoint Online


  • Hi

    We use webdav client in Windows 10 (like other folder in Windows) to update information in SharePoint Online, but always I need to connect to sharepoint online website and "open with File Explorer" to authenticate so folder link in Explorer works.

    Is there any way to save username/password online sharepoint in webdav link, so always I can connect sharepoint online without using website.

  • That's by design, the cookie/token expires and you have to relog. You can increase the timeout if you select the "Keep me signed in" checkbox upon logging to the portal, but it will again expire in 5 days or so. Details are here:

    Now, to go around the issue, you either have to use AD FS smartlinks with the KMSI option, or use some 3rd party tools that "emulate" logging in with the browser and autorenew the cookie. Or simply relog to SPO :)
