We have a company intranet based on SharePoint Online.
Since the built-in blogging features of SharePoint could not meet our requirements, we have set up an external blog using WordPress.
Both the blog and our intranet require authentication against our Azure Active Directory (Office365).
Technically the blog is an Azure Web app initially loaded with WordPress with Office365 authentication protecting it. It has all been configured using the out-of-the-box features of "Create new Web app with WordPress pre-loaded" in Azure. Authentication is done via OAuth and an Azure Active Directory application handling authentication/access for the blog.
The blog works fine - we really love it. But we would really like to be able to have the contents of the new blog included in SharePoint Search on our intranet.
But none of the configurations in SharePoint Search allows us to tap into the feed of the external blog with this authentication. We are already making a couple of external blogs (some of them also WordPress) accessible to SharePoint Search - but those allow anonymous access to the blog sites themselves.
So the question is - is it possible to have the content of our external blog made accessible through SharePoint Online Search?
If it is simply not possible directly in SharePoint Online - is there a work around we can use?
