Functionality

Carbon allows users to upload pdf, docx, pptx,txt,csv, png, rtf, tsv, xlsx, jpeg and md files directly from OneDrive.

Synchronization

Syncs are triggered when end-users select files to upload via the OneDrive file selector UI. You can also use the resync_file API endpoint to programmatically resync specific OneDrive files. To delete OneDrive files from Carbon, you can use the delete_files endpoint directly.

To sync OneDrive files on a 24-hour schedule (more frequent schedules available upon request), you can use the /update_users endpoint. This endpoint allows organizations to customize syncing settings according to their requirements, with the option to enable syncing for all data sources using the string ‘ALL’. It’s important to note that each request supports up to 100 customer IDs.

Here’s an example illustrating how to automatically enable syncing for updated OneDrive content for specified users:

{
    "customer_ids": ["team@carbon.ai", "sam@openai.com"],
    "auto_sync_enabled_sources": ["ONEDRIVE"]
}
