Joomla Tools 2.5 for SharePoint Released, now with NTLM support

We implemented NTLM support with personal or global (static) authentication. This provide safer integrations and personalized content from SharePoint.

Ensure that you use the latest version of the Camelot SharePoint Integration Toolkit when using this version of Joomla Tools.

Using NTLM Authentication

To use this features please ensure your Camelot SharePoint Integration Toolkit is version 2.0.4 or newer.


Static vs. Personal Credentials

Each connection holds which authentication to use. If you simply enable NTLM and leave the NTLM Username and Password fields’ blank personal authentication is used. This will trigger a login form to show whenever the connection is requested
