    @koltyakov Anything which would help me?
    I need to get the files in the folder in sharepoint and display them for download in react front end
    tried sp-download but couldn't make it work
    I have solved the above error in the image, but no files are downloading, its 0 out of 0 always
    Any proper examples for sp-download?
    other than the npm examples
    Andrew Koltyakov

    Hi @Burnfireblaze,

    Thanks for the interest in the libraries.

    This is the error^

    This looks as if you were provided a wrong creds or a wrong strategy.
    Is it SharePoint Online or Onprem?

    sp-download examples


    It's just it. There could be no other examples. sp-download is a bare minimal one use case lib and cli.
    In tests, there is a bit more, https://github.com/koltyakov/sp-download/blob/master/test/integration/tests.spec.ts, yet in terms of examples it's the same exactly pattern.


    The different examples can be checked in the manual tests https://github.com/koltyakov/sppull/tree/master/test/manual
    Or in integration tests.

    While you're experiencing the issues with a straightforward scenario which just works for others, my guess you're providing a wrong path to site or folder or file, or wrong creds or strategy.

    Please check this wiki for the auth strategies https://github.com/s-KaiNet/node-sp-auth/wiki

    I'd suggest separating a possible issues by checking auth first - https://github.com/koltyakov/node-sp-auth-troubleshoot - this project setup allows quickly check if auth works. Don't try populating config manually, but use the wizard and then check what the private.json ended up with.

    And is there anyway to get the names of files inside the folder?
    Andrew Koltyakov
    Hello everyone, I have been experiencing a strange issue with the node-sp-auth package and I am hoping to get some help here hopefully.
    The issue is that when calling the getAuth() with client_id and client_secret only, everything seems to be working ok (in that I don't get any errors back), but when the promise resolves, the access token comes back as undefined, so the "headers" object looks like this: {'Authorization': 'Bearer undefined'}.
    Do you have any idea as to why this could be happening? Also worth mentioning that I have been observing this behavior only since yesterday, and that my integration was working fine before.
    Andrew Koltyakov
    Hi @mmorandini, did you prolongate the add in? By default an add-in registration is actual per a year, then needed secret update.
    Hi @koltyakov, I didn't and this could be te case actually. I'll look into that. The thing that scared me was not receiving any errors back. I'll let you know how it goes :)

    Hello guys! I have a problem statement where I want to upload a file to company's sharepoint and also retrieve the public url of that file using node/python. Can anybody suggest me how to achieve this ? I tried reading the docs but didn't understand it. It would be great if someone points me to the right direction. Thanks :)
    Rushabh Wadkar
    I tried spsave but it isn't working properly. getting this error - " spsave: Error: No XML to parse!" Please help!
    Hi @koltyakov I have an urgent need. Are there any npm modules to rename a folder?
    on sharepoint
    would spsave or sppurge or sppull or any oher modules work?
    Andrew Koltyakov
    A raw query via sprequest or PnPjs
    HI Andrew but am not aware of the exact process, do you have any documentation?
    Can you please elaborate what I should do??

    https://github.com/SharePoint-NodeJS/pnp-auth - how to authenticate in Node.js environment
    Hello, everyone.
    I have to create a react native app with which I can upload files to sharepoint 2019. Sharepoint is authenticated with adfs.
    the user must be able to authenticate himself with adfs in my app. is that possible? if so, do you know any documentation or a tool?
    Danny Foncke
    Hi all - I wonder if(how) I could get following scenario to work:
    • user is on local pc in browser logged on to SP2019 onprem (ADFS)
    • in SP page a js script connects to a nodejs api
    • Can the js script pass the user authentication to nodejs ?
    • Can nodejs check the authentication with SP ?
    any sharepoint developers here ???
    is there anything Mac + Visual Studio Code + SharePoint Framework cannot do in terms of developing SharePoint Add-ins compared to Windows + Visual Studio + Microsoft Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio. ???
    Hi Andrew, I am really grateful to you for developing spsave, sppull, and sppurge, using this modules I was able to establish a full stack solution for uploading files to sharepoint with ease. I was just an intern and now I have received a good job offer, your modules helped a lot.
    The full stack project I did for the company was solid and liked by the team a lot
    Thank you for helping me out also when needed in this chat, really appreciate the work.
    to andrew and others involved in these modules
    Andrew Koltyakov
    Thank you @Burnfireblaze! P.S. spsave is created by @s-KaiNet not me :)
    Oh @s-KaiNet thanks a lot too!
    Hi Andrew I am facing an issue in SP Pull, any idea what could be causing this:
    Core error has happened GotError: connect ECONNREFUSED
    at onError (C:...\node_modules\got\dist\source\request-as-event-emitter.js:140:29)
    at handleRequest (C:....got\dist\source\request-as-event-emitter.js:173:17)
    at processTicksAndRejections (internal/process/task_queues.js:95:5)
    at TCPConnectWrap.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (net.js:1148:16) {
    name: 'RequestError',
    code: 'ECONNREFUSED'
    The credentials seem to be fine and the links seem to be fine
    Andrew Koltyakov
    Hey! ECONNREFUSED is when Node.js process can’t physically reach an address.
    Could be because of enterprise proxy for instance.
    I have seen this, could this be an issue, and any way to resolve this?
    I am using Azure functions basically
    Andrew any way to overcome this? I am unable to use sppull in serverless azure functions.


    This is an exact replication of the error

    Ok Solved it was a simple issue
    Andrew Koltyakov
    What was it? Might be helpful for others if faced the same issue.

    Hi @Burnfireblaze ! I'm facing the same issue, it will be very helpful if you can share the solution.

    I'm currently trying to develop a electron/typescript application and very new to it.
    Reading through the documentation of you package, it looks like I should be able to handle authentication and requests for on prem severs using 'User credentials through the http ntlm handshake', through this package called 'sp-jsom-node'.
    I noticed the minimal setup section for typescript and made a few alterations. See test code below.

    const authOptions: IAuthOptions = {
      username: 'JohnDoe',
      password: 'S3cureP@ss',
      domain: 'myDomainName'
    const authContext: IJsomNodeContext = {
      siteUrl: siteUrl, 
      authOptions: authOptions,
      modules: [ 'core' ], 
      envCode: '2016' 
    const ctx = new JsomNode().init(authContext).getContext();
    const oWeb = ctx.get_web();
    const oLists = oWeb.get_lists();

    I get a error from 'new JsomNode()' within electrons developer tool window that states:

    'Uncaught Error: Cannot find module 'net'
    at webpackEmptyContext (eval at ./node_modules/defaultable sync recursive (app.js:1157:1), <anonymous>:2:10)
    at Object.workaround_require (defaultable.js?6987:49:1)
    at require (defaultable.js?6987:77:1)
    at eval (server.js?663d:9:1)
    at defaulter (defaultable.js?6987:83:1)
    at defaultable (defaultable.js?6987:63:1)
    at good (defaultable.js?6987:174:1)
    at Object.eval (server.js?663d:5:1)
    at eval (server.js:242:30)
    at Object../node_modules/hbo-dnsd/server.js (chunk-vendors.js:3945:1)'.

    I suspect it has something to do with the fact that I'm using Typescript and there's a missing module for NET which might be used within JsomNode?
    I'm not too sure if the issue is with my implementation or just my lack of understanding.

    I'm basically trying to create a authenticated context without using the 'private.json' file and instead using direct user input to the application.

    Andrew Koltyakov

    Hey @Darkstar69er,

    JSOM/CSOM is an old API which sometimes is useful for the places where modern API doesn't work or have gaps. But in a usually not needed until you know a very specific case you'd can't managed with REST for example.
    It runs in Node.js environment. You can't run a Node.js code in browser.

    The error is not connected with TypeScript. The message you're getting is Webpack which can't bundle code for browser as it can't find Node.js 'net' and browser is not a server side JS environment.

    In Electron app you should route requests through Electron's backend to make it work.

    Hi @koltyakov, thank you! I appreciate the response and guidance.

    Hi Guys, hope you're doing just fine.

    Can you assist me? What i'm missing?

    const listTitle = 'sites';
        const request = sprequest.create(credentials);
       let urlTest = 'url';
       .then(digest => {
         return request.post(`${urlTest}/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('${listTitle}')/items`, {
           headers: {
             'X-RequestDigest': digest,
             "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
           body: {
             __metadata: { 'type': `SP.Data.${listTitle}ListItem` },
             Title: 'Test'
       .then((data) => {
       .catch((err) => {

    it returns:

    Response code 400 (Bad Request)

    Hi, I'm noob here. English not my mother tongue. So forgive me if I typo or grammar mistake.
    I am following the tutotial on this page with node.js method for OneDrive business to WebDav

    So far all npm command already install and apply; but my access to localhost:3000 is failed.

    The things to ask is, I'm totally clueless how to use node-sp-auth as authentication?
    I'm lost with:

    Create authentication headers and perform http request
    Is it a file? Where it should be save? and under what name?

    I don't have experience using node.js ; just pick it up few days ago when I discover the tutorial.

    Hopefully, you guys can answer me. The node.js is running on machine Synology DS916+ DSM7
