Maybe this will help or inspire you, although it’s an alternative approach.
“Ontolica Fusion CtrlSync” can remotely sync files in and out of multiple OneDrive for Business accounts, FileShares and SharePoint Sites.
It is controlled from a simple SharePoint List called Subscription, where each List Item defines user, source URL/UNC and a target URL/UNC. In this example, target is the URL for the individual users OneDrive account. The source can be anything from an FileShare UNC, URL to some SharePoint Document Library or even another OneDrive account.
The Subscription List Item have several other properties to define the sync specification like:
Include subfolders, 1-way/2-way operation, Copy/Move/Delete/Sync, Audit retention period, Expiration date.
It runs as a Windows Service and has full tracking and audit logging both to a SharePoint List as well as to a local database.
The setup is customizable and allows for custom rules, for example to set metadata etc.
So, to sum it up, this approach enables you to remotely control file content on multiple users’ OneDrive for Business accounts i.e. “put files there and fetch files”.
You can even sync files to specified “In-Box” folders and fetch updates from another “Out-Box” folders and move/copy to a receiving SharePoint Document Libraries or FileShares.
