Hi,

I am trying to give access to a sharepoint site to external guest users withou them having to create a Microsoft account, but simply getting an authentication via a verification code. 

It works to sharing files and folders in Onedrive as well as Sharepoint, but not for an entire site or subsite. 

When I share the site to an external user they have to login with a MS account.

When I share a file or folder from the same site, they can login after a verification code.

Thx for your help

 

PS Azure AD One time password is enabled, Site sharing permission is allowed for 'specific people'

Hi,
It is the intended and expected behavior currently when you share an entire site to external users.
Sites can't be shared with external users unless they have a Microsoft account or a work or school account in Azure AD.

Please refer this link from Microsoft for the details - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/external-sharing-overview#what-happens-when-users-share.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
