I am using sp2013 onpremise standard licence. I have created a project site. Inside this project site I have a tasks list. I try to sync the tasks list with exchange/Outlook 2013.

But I got this error:

We weren't able to start syncing your tasks because one or more pre-requisites for connecting to Exchange server could not be found. Please contact your administrator to resolve this issue.

enter image description here

This farm feature is activated:

Farm Level Exchange Tasks Sync

I have already this service application created:

Work management service application

I have installed the "ExchangeWebServices" API on my app server:

msiexec /i EwsManagedApi.msi addlocal="ExchangeWebServicesApi_Feature,ExchangeWebServicesApi_Gac"

I have configured User Profile Synchronization and it is scheduled every day.

I do NOT yet run this script on the exchange 2013 server:

.\Configure-EnterprisePartnerApplication.ps1 -ApplicationType Sharepoint -AuthMetadataUrl https://<SP_FQDN>/_layouts/15/metadata/json/1

My webapplication is an intranet and dont have ssl. I have only an http url. Is it possible to get this sync worked on an http webapplication?

  • I see, thanks. Have you checked your ULS logs when you are trying to the synchronization? Aug 22, 2014 at 16:03
  • I need first run this script on the exchange server(.\Configure-EnterprisePartnerApplication.ps1 and the rest...). I didnt yet let it do by a collegea. But I dont have an ssl webapplication. Is it also possible without ssl?

  • Have you read this article? It states that SharePoint Server and Exchange Server must be installed in the same environment for task lists to be able to sync correctly. support.microsoft.com/kb/2876938 Aug 22, 2014 at 16:13

Please make sure the below steps are performed.

  • You will need to have Exchange 2013 in your environment.
  • You will also need to install Exchange 2013 Web Services Managed API 2.0
  • Establish an OAuth trust on the Exchange Server

read more about the pre-req on this technet.

  • I am stuck on this requirement: Establish an OAuth trust on the Exchange Server. Is an SSL realy required? Without SSL not possible?
