SharePoint Input List Error - "There was a problem establishing a connection"

I'm trying to connect to SharePoint 2013 and I just can't seem to get connected using the SharePoint List Input.


I keep getting an error "There was a problem establishing a connection" and not sure where I am going wrong.


SharePoint Version: 2013


SharePoint URL:




this is as far as I get before the error pops up saying that there was a problem establishing a connection. Is there anything I am doing wrong up until this point?


Hi @sasha_pugliese,


While this seems like an odd workaround, but could you try changing the Sharepoint version number to 2007?  Sometimes that version is a little more accepting for establishing a connection.


Also, be sure that your username is correct.  You can check your domain within the Control Panel -> Control Panel\System and Security\System.  The username will be whatever you use when logging into Sharepoint.




Please let me know if this helps.

Did you solve it?

I have the same problem, I can not connect to sharepoint online.
Can someone show me an example, please.

I have not gotten this resolved. :(


Our company recently upgraded from SP 2010 to 2013, I could not connect using the SP list input tool unless 2007 is selected.  I have also opened a ticket with support
