Granting Radar permissions to Office 365 APIs

Microsoft has made great progress on providing a range of Office 365 and Azure Active Directory APIs that Radar can use to collect more and more reporting data for your Office 365 tenant.

Unfortunately, these newer APIs often require additional permissions to be granted in order for us to collect, store, and display the reporting data.

Granting Additional Permissions

When a report requires additional permissions, you’ll see the message like the ones below.

Clicking the blue button takes you to the settings page that explains how to grant the required permissions.

Clicking the Connect to Azure Active Directory button takes you to the Office 365 Login page where you’re prompted to log in to Office 365 as a global administrator. At no point will Radar see your username and password, and you will have the chance to review and approve the permissions before you continue.

Once you enter your username and password, review the permissions to ensure they are appropriate for your organization, and then click the Accept button.

 

You will now be taken back to the application where it will check to ensure the permissions have been correctly applied. It can sometimes take a minute or two for the permissions to apply due to replication delays within the Microsoft Azure infrastructure.

Once the permissions are applied you’ll be notified and you can navigate back to the report or feature you were trying to access before.

Removing the Additional Permissions

At any time, you can remove these permissions and disconnect the Radar application from your Office 365/Azure AD account using PowerShell.

First, log in to Office 365 using PowerShell as a Global Administrator.

Now, run the following CmdLet to find the application in your Office 365 account. This will display all applications with word Reports in their name.

Get-MsolServicePrincipal | ? {$_.DisplayName -like "*Reports*"}

Copy the AppPrincipalID in the result and then use it to remove the application with this cmdlet

Remove-MsolServicePrincipal -AppPrincipalId <AppPrincipalIDAbove>
