What to do next
Once your Microsoft 365 account is connected with Yeastar Workplace, you can add rooms from Microsoft 365 and allocate devices.
Why does Yeastar Workplace ask for full access to all mailboxes?
Yeastar Workplace uses an authentication method called OAuth to securely install the app onto your Microsoft 365 account. OAuth is a way for apps to request very specific rights for your account. For Microsoft 365/EWS, Microsoft requires that all OAuth apps request mailbox permission for EWS APIs. Once installed, Yeastar Workplace only interacts with your calendars.
Why is a Global Administrator account required?
To sync room calendars, a domain-level Azure AD App will be installed to your Microsoft 365 account, which requires the authorization of a Global Administrator account. If you'd like to learn more about why a Global Administrator is needed, and how to keep your Microsoft 365 account secure, see this topic.
