Microsoft Office 365 uses OAuth 2.0. Please sign up for an application on Microsoft first and get an OAuth client ID, client secret.

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.}}/connector/callback

    Multi-tenanted: Yes

  3. Set the appropriate permissions as described below.


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

You must also set the Type of each Permission differently depending on which Connector you’re using:

  • Microsoft Office 365 Connector: set Permissions as “Delegated”
  • Microsoft Office 365 (Application Permissions): set Permissions as “Application”

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
Users Delegated/Application according to the Connector User.Read.All
Calendars/Calendar Groups/Events   Calendars.Read
Emails   Mail.Read
OneDrive   File.Read

Connector Setup

Go to Cyclr Console (https://yourCyclrInstance/console) > Connectors > Application Connector Library > Microsoft Office 365 > Setup

Client ID: This is the Application ID displayed in the portal

Client Secret: Create a Password under Microsoft Azure portal > Azure Active Directory > App Registrations > Your Application > API Access > Keys. Copy and paste the password as the client secret.

You are now ready to install the Connector. When you do so you will need the Tenant ID. This is the Directory ID found below the Client ID in the portal.
