Issue in SharePoint to SFDC Integration.

Hi All,
We are integrating Salesforce(Cloud ) and SharePoint 2010 (on premise) through Sunlight Search to search documents in SharePoint.
The search configuration is successful and brings the documents by connecting to external Data source/object(SharePoint) in Salesforce.
On clicking the document url which is a SharePoint url in Salesforce, Its prompting for authentication to users due to different domains and users have no access to SharePoint. 
We need to open the document url with search configuration user account  for SharePoint instead of prompting for authentication.

thanks in advance.

Hi Srinivas, 


This has to be configured at the Sharepoint End and not on Salesforce end, 

When a user attempts a URL in Sharepoint - he has to by default get signed in as "search configuration" user's account and access Share point resource. 

If the user is getting the search result in Salesforce then his salesforce authentication can be trusted and i believe no more authentication required for the Sharepoint site apart from your Internal Network. 

Hence you can use those documents to be exposed to external user within your network with Link. 

While reseaching on this issue found few links hope they will put you in the right direction,
