This article relates to our product Cloud Drive Mapper.


Cloud Drive Mapper is quite simple on the surface, but beneath the basic shell are quite a few custom capabilities that you can enable via registry keys. Registry keys can be used to enable and optimise compatibility of Cloud Drive Mapper within an IT environment (see separate article for these) or activate useful features and customisations (see below). 

All keys are Reg_SZ and should be place in one of the following locations dependent on the key

  • HKCU\Software\IAM Cloud\CloudDriveMapper
  • HKLM\Software\IAM Cloud\CloudDriveMapper


TABLE OF CONTENTS



MasterSettings


From 2.9 onwards MasterSettings has been updated to consolidate the configuration of advanced features and troubleshooting features into a single setting.


MasterSettings is a bitmask. The value can be computed by adding together the values from all the settings you want to be enabled. So for example, if you wished to enable verbose logging to local app data (32) and run CDM in a VDI environment under multiple instances (256) you would set MasterSettings = 288






1
EnableBasicMode
By default from version 2.9.1 and above, Cloud Drive Mapper will use the Advanced Mode AAD Enterprise App as standard. For customers who had previously used the 'Standard mode' use this setting
2
UseCookies
If experiencing auth issues use this to troubleshoot. Used for legacy authentication.
4
TurnOnWebView2
Turns on WebView2 component. Default is Webcontrol.
8
NoIWAAuth
Ensures Windows Integrated Authentication is not used.
16
NoSilentAuth
Will not try SSO. The browser window that shows will be interactive.
32
VerboseLogging
Enables Cloud Drive Mapper logging to text files created in %localappdata%/IAM Cloud/Cloud Drive Mapper
64
NoUserExit
Prevents users from being able to exit the CDM application
128
WriteLogToEventLog
Writes logs to the Windows Event Log
256
AllowMultipleInstances
Required for VDI / VAI environments (Citrix, RDSH, VMWare)
512
DisableEnforceChangeDriveLabel
Do not enforce the drive label.
1024
DisableCredentialSave
Stops CDM saving credentials in Windows Credential Manager.
2048
PreAuthClearDown
In some environments we've found that previously cached authentication data can interfere with the successful operation of CDM. Enabling this setting forces CDM to remove all pre-existing authentication cache before it launches.
4096
PreCacheClearDown
In some environments we've found that previously cached drive and settings data can interfere with the successful operation of CDM. Enabling this setting forces CDM to remove all pre-existing drive and settings cache before it launches.
8192
ExitConvergeClearDown
Removes the cached directory structure for converged on CDM exit. Not set on default for performance purposes.
16384
AllowUsersLanguageSelection
Cloud Drive Mapper is translated into several languages and will auto-detect the default language set on the machine. If a language is set to a language we don't support it will default to English. However, enabling this feature will allow users to be able to over-ride the automatic language options and select their preferred language from a list of our supported languages. When this feature is enabled, it will appear as a menu item when right-clicking on the CDM system tray icon.
32768
DoNotUseAzureAD
Stops CDM from logging in with the account associated with Azure AD. A user might want to use an Azure AD tenant not associated with your organisation Azure AD in specific circumstances.
65536
IncludeAuthInfoInLogs
By default CDM's logs do not contain any sensitive information, however for challenging authentication related issues it may be necessary to see detailed information for the users authentication session tokens. This option should be used sparingly and with care.

ListConvergeSettings


NB: In versions 2.8.x and below this feature was called MasterSettings, but from 2.9 onwards MasterSettings has been repurposed and the settings that used to exist there have now been moved to this dedicated key ListConvergeSettings.

ListConvergeSettings is a bitmask. The value can be computed by adding together the values from all the settings you want to be enabled. So for example, if you wanted to remove modern sites (unified groups) from SharePoint Converged drive and remove the custom SP icons (in favour of folder icons) then you would use 1+16. E.g. ListConvergeSettings = 17


1SPConverge-> OnlyShowSitesWithMembershipWill remove modern sites (unified group) where you are not a member (such as public)
2FullConverge -> ShowOnlyTeamsThis allows Teams to work in the traditional SP doc-lib model rather than using Teams channels. Use in conjunction with 4 (i.e. 2+4=6) to use the Teams icons within the drive to recreate the previous ‘TeamstoDocLib’ registry setting.
4FullConverge -> ShowServiceIconsUses SharePoint icons for SharePoint site and Teams icon for Teams. Cannot be used with 8
8FullConverge -> NoIconsUses normal Windows folder icons for Teams and SharePoint sites. Cannot be used with 4
16SPConverge-> NoIconsUses folder icons within a SP converged drive.
32TeamsConverge -> NoIconsUses folder icons within a Teams converged drive.
64FullConverge -> OnlyShowSitesWithMembershipWill remove modern sites (unified group) where you are not a member (such as public)
128FullConverge -> OnlyShowSiteWithGroupsWill only show spsites that have groups (modern sites)
256SPConverge-> OnlyShowSiteWithGroupsWill only show spsites that have groups (modern sites)
512OneDrive -> NoIconsUses folder icon instead of the IAM Cloud icon within the CreateToFolder setting
1024TeamsConverge -> Show Archived TeamsArchived Teams are automatically hidden - enabling this feature will show them in your Teams converge drive
2048FullConverge -> Show Archived TeamsArchived Teams are automatically hidden - enabling this feature will show them in your Full Converge drives
4096FullConverge -> Show SPO Communication sites without membershipBy default converge drives only map SPO sites that a user has been explicitly granted membership/permission for. This means 'communication' SPO sites are normally excluded. Enabling this key means they will be included in your FullConverge drive
8192SPConverge -> Show SPO Communication sites without membershipBy default converge drives only map SPO sites that a user has been explicitly granted membership/permission for. This means 'communication' SPO sites are normally excluded. Enabling this key means they will be included in your SPConverge drive

DisableNotifications


By default all notifications are enabled, however you can optionally remove different notification types

  • LicenceKey = 2,
  • Error = 4,
  • Information = 8,
  • Authentication = 16,
  • LicenceKeyNotPresent = 32
