When working with Office 365 and Exchange services, it can be helpful to work with groups instead of users, for example, for allowing a group to have full access to a shared mailbox. In this case, there are some things to consider. See the working result in this documentation.
With Delegate version 7.2 there come some new and useful features especially in the sync rules. See the details described here.
As of today, many organizations use various Microsoft Azure services. SQL Azure databases are popular among them.

RBAC was introduced in Exchange 2010 to allow precise permission management within the Exchange organization for administrators and users. With RBAC, you can configure and control in a very granular way the administrative tasks that administrators or users can perform. RBAC controls both the administrative tasks that can be performed and the extent to which users can now administer their own mailbox and distribution groups. Understand that, with RBAC, it doesn’t matter what Active Directory permissions you have when using Exchange management tools—everything is authorized and controlled via RBAC. You can define precisely which cmdlets and parameters a user can run or modify.
Keep in mind that your AD FS deployment is essential for your users to access Office 365 applications. Both internal and external users require a stable running AD FS environment. This guide will help you to troubleshoot some well-known AD FS issues.

In many scenarios, public cloud services allow a high grade of elasticity, flexibility and cost effectiveness combined with standardization. On the other hand, every customer needs to build trust to the desired platform and that all his services and data are protected against any attacks. So, it’s very interesting to see, what kind of mechanisms the large cloud providers as Microsoft are using to keep data safe and how they detect attacks and what countermeasures they execute.
The Microsoft Graph API is the new unified endpoint for developers accessing data from an Office 365 tenant. Amongst many other features, you can work with OneDrive and SharePoint files with the Graph REST API. Additionally, you can directly work with Excel files through the Graph Excel API. Since all samples I found just use the personal OneDrive for Business (OFB) file storage, I wanted to document how to access files that are stored in a SharePoint Online site (SPO) as well. So, here we go!
Holidays are a good time for cleaning up. For migrating an old on-premises file storage to the cloud, I used some tools and invested some time. See my scenario and the tools here.
