Does this work with federated authentication for SharePoint Online?

Feb 28, 2014 at 3:29 PM
I can authenticate using this tool to one SharePoint Online tenant that does not use federated authentication, but I cannot authenticate using this tool to another SharePoint Online tenant that authenticates against the on-prem ADFS proxy.

That's weird, because in the background I'm using the SharePointOnlineCredentials class. This class should support both SharePoint Online accounts ( and Federated accounts (

Could you please retry and if it fails again, please provide logging information. Please use Verbose logging (Options » Logging Level » Verbose).

When trying to authenticate to SharePoint Online I keep getting the error, "The Application ID (App ID) for which the service ticket is requested does not exist on the system.

Yeah I am getting the same error as dbottjer.
Below is the Verbose logging.

Same as dbottjer for me as well: "The Application ID (AppID) for which the service ticket is requested does not exist on the system"

What I realized that it could be due to the authentication infrastructure. If you are directly connecting to SharePoint Online and using the "default" Microsoft products for authentication it should work as expected. If another authentication product is in between this could interfere with the authentication process based on CSOM. The authentication steps done in SPCB is nothing special and I can't change this.

I'm curious whether this is the case? Are there any other authentication products being used? Would love to hear from you.

I'm now convinced it has something to do with my home network. While I'm at the office, everything works fine. When I'm at home, all I can get is "The Application ID (AppID) for which the service ticket is requested does not exist on the system."

I have no idea what it could be as far as the network goes. Any ideas? Anyone else have different results when working from different networks?

Yep, confirmed. I just called and talked to tech support at my ISP and the "The Application ID (AppID) for which the service ticket is requested does not exist on the system" message is occurring because I'm on a residential network instead of a business network. Looks like I'll have to go to the office for these kinds of things. Argh!

Sorry to hear you have to move to the Office Network to use the tool, although I'm glad this is the answer to the issue. Enjoy the tool @ the office ;-)
