Microsoft 365 connector

The Microsoft 365 connector gathers data about users from Office 365.

In order to connect Microsoft 365 to the Neurons Platform, you must create an application in Azure Active Directory first. The app must have the following permissions: Organization.Read.All, Directory.Read.All, and Reports.Read.All). For information on creating the application, see the article in the Community:

How to set up an Azure Active Directory (AD) Connector

A Microsoft 365 connector has the following options:

  • Connector name: A name for the connector.
  • Connector server name: The name of the connector server that this connector is associated with. Each connector can only be associated with one connector server. If you added the connector to a specific connector server, this field may be populated for you. Otherwise, you can select the connector server from the list.
  • Directory (tenant) ID: The ID of the tenant you created in Azure.
  • Application (client) ID: The ID of the application you created in Azure.
  • Date filter: To limit the amount of data that is gathered for Neurons, set a threshold for a specific number of days. The connector will not include records unless the user has checked in or otherwise changed during that time.
  • Client secret: The client secret associated with the application you created in Azure.
  • Repeats: How often the connector should gather data.
  • Start time: The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
  • Active: Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.
