Microsoft Outlook Enterprise Considerations
- In order to connect and collect from Microsoft Outlook Enterprise an Onna admin must also enable the non-enterprise connector in the ‘Sources’ section of ‘Admin preferences’.The non-enterprise connector can be enabled in the ‘Enabled sources’ section of that page. For more information visit the user guide How to Manage Admin Preferences in our Help Center.
Microsoft Outlook Enterprise Requirements
- Onna uses the Microsoft Graph APIs to collect all your Microsoft Outlook user data. For this, Onna requires organization-wide Graph API access. Only Microsoft users accounts with an Administrative Role can consent to this access. The user role with the least privileges that can consent to this is the Privileged Role Administrator. You can also use a role with greater privileges, such as Global Administrator.
- Before setting up a new sync using the Microsoft Outlook Enterprise connector you will need to have access to authorized connection credentials in Onna. To learn more about how to set up and share an authorized connection visit the article, Creating and Managing Authorized Connections in Onna.
In order to set up an authorized connection for Microsoft Outlook Enterprise you will need the following information:
- For the purpose of setting up Onna with your Microsoft Outlook account, we recommend creating a service account with the appropriate privileges instead of using an existing personal user account. When assigning new privileges to an account, it may take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect.
Check out Microsoft documentation about admin roles and on how to assign these roles.
