Share, External SSO, and Sharepoint

Hi Everyone,

I've successfully gotten the external authentication subsystem to auth /share and /alfresco (community 4.2.e), and now I'm working on trying to get the Sharepoint/Edit Online action to appear in Share.

According to another forum post, the action checks appear to fail at the first step: a call to /alfresco/service/api/vti/serverDetails. This URL on my server prompts for a username and password.

I also have passthru in my authentication chain specifically for authenticating sharepoint and cifs (which works for cifs), and if I enter a valid AD username and password in the browser the request returns JSON data about my sharepoint server.

Has anyone else gotten this to work in their environments with similar configurations?

alfresco-global.properties:

authentication.chain=external1:external,passthru1:passthru,alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm
external.authentication.enabled=true
external.authentication.proxyUserName=
external.authentication.proxyHeader=x-alfresco-remote-user
external.authentication.userIdPattern=
external.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=myadminuser
ntlm.authentication.sso.enabled=false
alfresco.authentication.allowGuestLogin=false
alfresco.authentication.authenticateCIFS=false
passthru.authentication.useLocalServer=false
passthru.authentication.domain=my.domain.edu
passthru.authentication.servers=DOMAIN\\IPaddr
passthru.authentication.guestAccess=false
passthru.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=admin
passthru.authentication.connectTimeout=15000
passthru.authentication.offlineCheckInterval=300
passthru.authentication.protocolOrder=NetBIOS,TCPIP
passthru.authentication.authenticateCIFS=true
passthru.authentication.authenticateFTP=true
