Automatically Provisioning Service Accounts

Automatically provisioning service accounts does the following:

  • Creates new service accounts based on selected Microsoft Office 365 services

  • Configures required roles and other settings for the new service accounts

Automatically provisioning service accounts eliminates the need to:

  • Manually create and configure Office 365 user accounts

  • Manually assign Exchange Online roles

  • Manually add SharePoint Online site collections

  • Manually assign SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business site collections administrators, one by one

To automatically provision service accounts, you can:

  • Create a Delegate Account for Exchange Online.

  • (For EU and U.S. sites) Use the the OAuth authorization framework to create an authorized account for Exchange Online.

  • Create a Delegate Account for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

There are three ways to begin a provisioning flow:

  • Use the pop-up wizard that appears at sign in.

  • On the Dashboard screen, hover over Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, or OneDrive for Business that you want to protect and click Provision in the tooltip that appears.

  • Go to Administration > Service Account. Click Add and select Exchange Online or SharePoint Online.
