  • Hi,

    If you want your app can download or upload file from OneDrive, the user must be signed in to his or her Microsoft account for your app to work with the user's info on OneDrive. You help the user do this by adding sign-in functionality to your app in the form of a button or a hyperlink. Please refer to the link below:


    And I recommend you can see a sample:


    Best Wishes!
