Creating document set in sharepoint online from salesforce


I need to create a document set in sharepoint online from salesforce after creating a new account record, how to achieve this.

I have gone through the Files connect and lightning connect both are having only the read the columns and files from sharepoint but the write operation from salesforce to sharepoint is not possible.

Is there any other way to create/update a sharepoint custom column from salesforce

I was reading that record embedding is available for SharePoint Online (cloud version of 2013), however I have not found documentation on how to set it up.  I already have the connection set up through files connect, but am still searching for the details for setting up the iframe for the records.

Hi Dinesh, like you, I have understood that external objects are read-only and thus this would be custom Apex code.

I recently worked on a POC project for this and found this stackoverflow post was very helpful -  The "Slug" was the key!  I'm happy to help if you get into coding this and run into an issue.  You can also read about the POC work (, to get an idea of what this implementation looked like.
