Answer

The OneDrive connector has been replaced by the "OneDrive and SharePoint Online" connector. 

The original OneDrive connector only allowed access to a user's own files. Now, with the new connector OneDrive and SharePoint Online, the following abilities become available:
  • Share files with other users who are allowed to access.
  • Access to files in the SharePoint Online document library.
