Azure Active Directory OAuth Application

See here for the official documentation for creating an Azure Active Directory application.

To Summarize the above documentation:

  1. Either log into your existing Azure account or register for a free Azure account.
  2. In your Microsoft Azure portal go to -> Azure Active Directory -> App Registrations -> New application registration.

    Below are the details you should provide:

    Name: Your Application Name

    Reply URLs: you must add a callback URL to allow Microsoft Office 365 to be used in your Cyclr Console and its Cyclr Accounts.

    The URL is:

    • https://{{Your Cyclr Service Domain e.g. app-h.cyclr.com}}/connector/callback

    Multi-tenanted: Yes

  3. Set the appropriate permissions as described below.

Permissions

You will need to set different permissions in Azure Active Directory depending on which auth flow you would like to utilize.

From the Application view (after the creation of the Application in step 3), navigate to “API Permissions” under “Manage” on the left side of the page. Add the following permissions:

Method Category Type Permission Name
Edu Delegated EduAssignments.ReadWriteBasic
  Delegated EduAssignments.ReadWrite

  Delegated EduAssignments.Read
  Delegated EduAssignments.ReadBasic
  Application EduAssignments.ReadWrite
