Connect Microsoft 365 account with Yeastar Workplace
This topic describes how to connect your Microsoft 365 account with Yeastar Workplace as the first step of integration.
- Admin role: Global Administrator
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 understand more about why a Global Administrator is needed, and how to keep your Microsoft 365 account secure, see this topic.
- Log in to Yeastar Workplace management portal.
- Go to Integration, click Connect beside the Microsoft icon.
In the pop-up window, log in with a global administrator account.
- Yeastar Workplace will ask for permissions to access calendar information in order to sync events.
Click Accept to complete the connection.
If the following page is displayed after clicking Accept, it indicates that your Microsoft 365 account doesn't meet the requirements for integration.
Why does it 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 API's. Once installed, Yeastar Workplace only interacts with your calendars.
What to do next
Once your Microsoft 365 account is connected with Yeastar Workplace, you can add rooms from Microsoft 365 and allocate devices.
