Share SharePoint on-premise site to external users via SharePoint online (O365) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am looking for solution to make an on-premise SharePoint site available to external users via SharePoint online. Or maybe creating two separate team sites for internal and external collaboration as it should be synchronized with external site when there is change on internal content.

    Any feedback is highly appreciated. 

    Thanks,

    Ash

  • Sure Lisa, I will mark it as an answer once I have more information on A2.

    No I am not a developer, but basically you would be doing a continuously migration of documents from one farm to another.

    Q1: "I am looking for solution to make an on-premise SharePoint site available to external users via SharePoint online".
    A1: That is not possible.

    Q2: "Or maybe creating two separate team sites for internal and external collaboration as it should be synchronized with external site when there is change on internal content"
    A2: This could be possible, but you would not retain any SharePoint features, traceability etc. The two farms would be disconnected, thus not able to share any information across. (Metadata, user information, revision history etc.)

    Sounds more like you should be looking into making the SharePoint on-premise site available to external users, through federation, either with Microsoft or external clients separately.

  • Thanks Jesper. Much appreciated for reply.

    Can you refer any implementation guide/link on A2 above. We should be able to use MS federation service if A2 is viable. Thanks,

  • You can use Azure B2B but you have to convert your Web Apps to SAML. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/using-azure-ad-for-sharepoint-server-authentication. I do not recommend this as it will prevent you from using Search Hybrid.
