tdf#115643 make onedrive work again by switching to graph API
the live SDK method had been deprecated quite a while ago and has been turned off a while back. Notes: While you can access and save existing files using the remote files dialog, creating new files or using "save as" requires using the LibreOffice open/save dialogs. Authentication is clunky: username and password you're asked when creating a new connection is not used at all for connecting, so only fill out a username to label your onedrive entry. Actual authentication is done in browser - copy'n'paste the URL from the dialog into the browser, login and approve access for LibreOffice (approving access only necessary once), then you get redirected to localhost, ignore that there is nothing to display. The important part is the code from the URL-bar. Copy and paste that into the LibreOffice dialog and LO can request an authentication token for API access. Testing this feature requires compiling with corresponding api-keys specified in configure/having an app registered with microsoft.
