FileZilla® Pro supports both OneDrive for Business – a secured cloud service that allows members of an organization to access their files -and SharePoint,  a Web-based product that interacts with Microsoft Office products.

You will need the organization administrator credentials to grant access on behalf of the organization, otherwise regular organization users will not be able to use FileZilla Pro to access their drives.

  1. Create a site entry for your OneDrive for Business connection.
  2. Click Connect to start the authorization process.
  3. Enter the organization administrator credentials.
  4. In the permissions requested page mark the option “Consent on behalf of your organization”.
  5. Choose Accept to grant access.
  6. Now you are connected as the organization administrator and other organization users can also use FileZilla Pro to access their OneDrive files.
