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 first need to create an application in Entra ID (formerly Azure AD). The app must have the Directory.Read.All, Organization.Read.All, Reports.Read.All, and User.Read permissions, which also need to be approved with Grant admin consent. For information on creating the app, see Creating API apps in Entra ID for Microsoft cloud connectors.
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.
For information about what data is imported and how it is mapped, see Mapping (below).
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 Entra ID.
- Application (client) ID: The ID of the application you created in Entra ID.
- Client secret: The client secret associated with the application you created in Entra ID.
- 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.
- 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.
- Action Credentials: The credentials Ivanti Neurons uses to perform actions and queries on device or people records. The types of available actions and queries will depend on your specific work environment.
If you add or change permissions for the app after initial registration, the Microsoft Application Key will not be updated and will need to be generated again. Make sure to update the connector with the new secret after changing permissions.
For details on configuring or using connectors, see Setting up connectors.
