Never been more frustrated with MS as I am now.

 

I am an adminstrator for Sharpoint Online with full control.  I have developed a list, have geolocation as part of the list and have created a map view of the list as you see below.  The map states my credentials are invalid and need to sign-up for a developer account at Bing Maps.  I have done this and have a key for Bing Maps.  However, I have not found any place in Sharepoint where I can add the credentials so I can view the map.  

 

Honestly, I am learning how to develop Sharepoint, but I am finding it to be extremely tedious and lacking appropriate guidance.

 

Appreciate any help you can provide.  Thanks!

Are you linking out to the maps? Have you tried using the new Powerapps feature instead and integrating the map directly into the form instead?

I am not using Powerapps.  I have added within a list a geolocation field and used script to populate the fields.  Once this was done, from the list, I selected to create a new view... a Map View selection was offered.  I selected the map view which you can see in the image I posted earlier.  I assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that this embedded map view from MS would automatically pick up the geolocation data.  Nevertheless, the view does not provide any further information or ability to enter my bing maps keys.  Nor, can I find any help information on the map view online.  

correction... this page does offer some instructions...

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/create-a-map-view-for-the-geoloc...

But, it does not provide any information where or how to enter bing maps key information to enable the maps. Thanks.

Thanks Christopher... a couple questions... I thought with Sharepoint Online this capability was already included???  See the article at this link...

... "By default, this file is installed for SharePoint Online."

 

Secondly, I believe I need access to powershell to upload the script?  I do not seem to have access.  How do I access powershell and how to enable this script within Powershell?

 

Really appreciate the help.  Thank you!

Then once connected I supposed follow the article previously, I've personally never done this :).

But it says the files are installed, not your key. You still have to supply a key to your site collection, and far as I can find this is the only way still via powershell setting that property on your site collection.

Great!  Looks like I have some work to do.  Appreciate the help.  Happy holidays!

actually ignore my 2nd post, I thought it was powershell, they actually used a console application for it. The 1st link however does use a powershell script, but it looks like some kind of dll's he links to in the script are required. let me poke around some more, but this should get you on the right path you will just need to figure out how to make that call to your site collection.

If you already created the columns via programatically it should be able to use that same method to set that property for the same site collection?

Does anybody has an idea on how to really enter the Bing Key in Sharepoint Online? Why is it so complicated, Microsoft?

Hi Adi, great work so far! did you tried a modern page site layout, a new page as Source for your list? There is a Webportal for bing to show your bing data. Happy new year! Eva

Hi Eva, thanks. Are you talking about the simple Modern Page Bing Map? Can't find any "Webportal" there...
I'm searching to use the List Map View (multiple locations on a single map).

Therefore Sharepoint still shows the Message: "Bing Code missing"...

Hi Adi,

 

Is this still an issue for you? I got this working last night. Modern sites don't really support Geolocations, so if you change your list to a classic site it should work.

 

As for adding the key I used the below PowerShell
