Support of modern authentication with Office 365

Promodag Reports supports Office 365 Modern Authentication

Microsoft announced that Basic Authentication will be turned off in Exchange Online for Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), POP, IMAP, and Remote PowerShell starting October 13, 2020. This is why we have started to implement Modern Authentication in Promodag Reports for those of our customers who are already using Office 365. This feature allows for the moment to import the directory, create Office 365 tracking logs and import the storage size.  The case of content reports will be dealt with at a later stage. 

Install the required components

To enable support of modern authentication with Office 356, you will need to install the Exchange Online PowerShell V2 module on the Promodag console.

Here's how to do it:

  • On the Promodag console, run Windows PowerShell as Administrator.
    • Enter this command: Install-Module PowershellGet -Force
    • Quit Window PowerShell to close the session.
  • Restart Window PowerShell as Administrator and enter the following commands:
    • Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned. Click Y to accept to change the execution policy.
    • Install-Module -Name ExchangeOnlineManagement. Click Y to validate the repository and then to accept the license terms.

Connect to Office 365

Once the module has been installed, start Promodag Reports in 64-bit mode. Please note that it is incompatible with the use of an Access database. Open the Tools > Options window and make sure it is listed in the Office 365 configuration tab.
