Pipe Microsoft OneDrive Data to CSV in PowerShell

Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access Microsoft OneDrive tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for Microsoft OneDrive is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with Microsoft OneDrive. Below, you will find examples of using our OneDrive Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your Microsoft OneDrive Data

OneDrive uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the OAuth section of the Help documentation for an authentication guide.

$conn = Connect-OneDrive  -OAuthClientId "$OAuthClientId" -OAuthClientSecret "$OAuthClientSecret" -OAuthCallbackURL "$OAuthCallbackURL"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the Files table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-OneDrive -Connection $conn -Table Files | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myFilesData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-OneDrive into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.
