OneDrive Business Search: How to connect different accounts

You can now create libraries of different OneDrive business accounts for the same provider (e.g. Microsoft OneDrive, Teams). A possible usage scenario is, for example, if you have several OneDrive Business Accounts and would like to integrate them into Noggle to ensure a uniform OneDrive Business search. Or if you work in several Microsoft teams with different accounts.

Here is how to connect with different accounts:

1. Open the Libray Manager panel

Library Manager

2. Create a new library via + button in the library manager panel

3. Name the library, add your account email and select provide

Please add your individual name. You can name choose your account eMail your want to link this connector to. Select the required connector in the “Provider” dropdown:

OneDrive Business Search settings for different providers

4. Click “Pick Folder” to start connecting to your account

If you click the pick folder button, Noggle will try to connect to the selected provider. The individual authorization dialog will start. The connection and authentication will be saved and synced with the given eMail from step 3. The authorization will be saved and kept once you did the authorization flow with you provider.

Once you finished the authentication flow, the folder selection panel will open. Please select one or more folders that should be indexed to ensure OneDrive business search in this library.

5. Click OK to start indexing

Can Noggle integrate external or individual data-sources?

Integrate individual and external data-sources with our pre-defined API connector

The Noggle client is built on an open and extensible framework and enables you to integrate different data sources. We provide two API definitions that allow you to integrate your individual datasets or existing search applications into the Noggle client:

Library Connector API

This API allows you to create different connectors to individual data sources. You code the access and data gathering procedures for your own data source (e.g., an internal SQL database or JIRA application) and feed that content into a Noggle Library via the Noggle Library Connector API. The library connector will be distributed on each client. Each client will then be able to use this connector to connect to your internal data sources and use all Noggle functions to index, search, retrieve, cluster, and so on. Our own public connectors (e.g., GoogleDrive, OneDrive, SharepointOnline) are built into this API. We provide basic source templates so you can get started quickly.

Managed Library API

This API allows you to connect to central hosted search APIs via the Noggle network. So, if you have an internal application with existing indexing and search capabilities, you can connect directly to that application via our managed library API. This means that you don’t need Noggle to build your local index libraries. You can use the existing search application and integrate the features directly into the Noggle client as a managed library. The user experience interface then allows the user to use existing search features from the Noggle front end without switching to different search engines or apps.

Both APIs require an enterprise subscription. With that, there are no limits to integrating whatever datasets you want into the cognitive retrieval features of Noggle.

How To Create A New Digital Library

Option A: You can use the Library Wizard to connect additional storage locations with “one-click” setup.

Click on the “Link Drives” icon in the menu panel and activate additional storage locations with the on/off button for each location.

Search OneDrive Documents – Office365 Integration

Search OneDrive Documents – How to integrate Office365 with Noggle

Noggle has direct interfaces to quickly find and search OneDrive documents via Office365 API integration.

Adoption of SharePoint Online, Office365 and OneDrive is high. Some companies have standardized on Office365 with OneDrive for Business as an document management platform while others use different storage locations for sharing files. In either situation, the reality is that business workers store information in multiple places — SharePoint, network file shares and cloud storages. To find that information is often a frustrating task of switching from application to application.

Noggle for Microsoft Office 365 enable information workers to easily and efficiently search, find and access documents from one single unified front-end desktop application. Noggle integrates OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and Office365 SharePoint Online storage locations to build and share knowledge libraries.


Noggle has registered apps to integrate with Microsoft OneDrive and OneDrive for Business storage accounts. Choose “OneDrive” or “OneDriveBusiness” as provider when creating a new noggle library. During library initialization, you must authorize the Noggle app to get access to your OneDrive account. The authorization flow will start automatically and only needs to be processed once.

OneDrive Authorization Flow

Login with your OneDrive Microsoft account data and approve the Noggle application permission request.

OneDrive Personal

OneDrive for Business Authorization Flow

1. Login with your Office365 account to authorize the noggle application:

Search OneDrive Documents - Noggle Login

2. Confirm that Noggle is allowed to read your OneDrive files:
