Files Connect Issue: Unable to create an external data source

Knowledge Article Number 000213024
Description As an administrator, I try to set up a Files Connect external data source for cloud systems, but I'm unable to see the Files Connect related entries (e.g: Files Connect: SharePoint Online, Files Connect: OneDrive for Business, Files Connect: Google Drive) in the "Type" dropdown list.

The reason is that the permission set created for letting users access Files Connect data sources is not assigned to your current user.
Resolution Make sure the permission set is assigned to the user: Letting users access Files Connect data sources, step 5.
