Microsoft 365 connector

This is a cloud 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, User.Read, 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) or Azure Intune Connector

Microsoft 365 policy defaults to reporting anonymized user names. You must change report settings in order for correct user names to be imported and used in Ivanti Neurons. For more information on this policy and how to change the setting, see Microsoft 365 reports show anonymous user names instead of actual user names.

A Microsoft 365 connector has the following options:

  • Connector name: A name for the connector.
  • Connector server name: For cloud connectors, this server is the Cloud option on the Connector Servers page. If you already added the connector to the Cloud option, this field will be populated for you. Otherwise, select Cloud 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.

If you add or change permissions for the app, the Microsoft Application Key isn't updated and will need to be generated again. Make sure to update the connector with the new Secret after changing permissions.
