Syncing of OneDrive Shared Librabies automatically using Microsoft Endpoint Manager

First of all, we need to create Configuration Profile within Microsoft Endpoint Manager, you’ll need to gather the SharePoint document library ID or ID), for all the locations you would like to publish to your Windows 10 Devices. In this blog I am going to publish the Blogabout Cloud Library to all my devices.

A window will now appear, (if you receive any prompts to open OneDrive ignore it), click Copy library ID, keep this handy.

Creating the Configuration Profile

In order to apply the configuration to your Windows 10 devices that are enrolled into Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Launch Microsoft Endpoint Manager go to Devices –> Configuration Profiles –> Create Profile

Select Windows 10 and Administrative Templates

Press Next

Provide a Name for the profile and brief description as shown below

Under Computer Configuration and OneDrive, look for the setting Configure team site libraries to sync automatically

Click Enable
Enter the name you would like to be displayed and the Library ID as shown below

I am now going to recommend a number of other Microsoft OneDrive settings

Silently sign in users to the OneDrive sync app with their Windows credentialsEnabled
Silently move Windows known folders to OneDriveEnabled
Use OneDrive Files On-DemandEnabled
Require user to confirm large delete operationsEnabled
Convert synced team site files to online-only filesEnabled

That completes the Configuration Profile setup, deploy this to your test users before deploying to production.

In my next post I am going to be looking leverage Proactive Remediation to decrease the synchronization time of assigned libraries to the Windows 10 device. The Microsoft default is 8 hours before the assigned libraries are published.
