WebDAV authentication issues (DAVx5) - HTTP 401

Copper Contributor

Hello Techcommunity,


I'm trying to mount my OneDrive-storage via WebDAV in the DAVx5 Android App. I've followed the description given by winscp.net to get the necessary WebDAV URL, User ID and app password.

The login window in DAVx5 has the following fields:


  1. Display Name (arbitrary)
  2. WebDAV URL
  3. User Name
  4. Password

I've entered the information/credentials in the following format:


  1. OneDrive
  2. https://d.docs.live.net/USERIDABCDEFGHIJ
  3. [email address]
  4. apppassword

Of course I used the actual ID, username/email and app password, that I checked multiple times and am certain are accurate.

When I try to Add Mount, DavX5 displays the error HTTP 401, which apparently points to an authentication issue.


Please let me know if there is a mistake in the way I enter my credentials. If there is nothing wrong with the information, perhaps it is a problem with the app, and I'll have to open an issue on GitHub.


Thank you for your help!
