At Microsoft Ignite conference last September, we demoed an approach for a self-built Office 365 Groups Governance Toolkit. Since Microsoft 365 is an evergreen service and continues to evolve, today we have more group settings available and we extend our provisioning function to work with group naming policies as well. See here how this can be accomplished by including new Graph requests.
Microsoft und atwork laden zur Remote Teilnahme an unserer Security Sprechstunde ein! Dies ist ein Online-Event via Microsoft Teams Meeting, welches mehrmals von Frühling bis Sommer 2019 von Microsoft Österreich und atwork kostenlos angeboten wird. Teilnehmer erfahren die neueste Informationen und Praxistipps rund um Microsoft 365 und können Fragen an die Experten stellen. Hier geht es zu den Terminen!
To apply governance in an organization, the responsible persons require data. See here, how we can get group data of an Office 365 tenant for further use, for example for a visualization with Microsoft Power BI and all the benefits of such an attractive and interactive tool.
Governance specifies the rules for an organization. The Office 365 collaboration platform allows to invite external users for contributing in groups. In this part, we want to monitor all groups that have external guests and inform the group owners, who has access to a group or a team. See how this works here.
Join us at the legendary European Collaboration Summit from May 27 to May 29, 2019 in Wiesbaden, Germany! #collabsummit is Europe's largest community-driven conference with a focus on modern workplace technologies and digital transformation, with topics such as Microsoft 365, Azure, SharePoint, AWS, and Business Apps. The conference is organized for the community by the community.
After the introduction of the Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams Governance Toolkit and with the necessary requirements we are now looking into Azure Functions. In our group and team provisioning scenario, we need a little code for provisioning of an Office 365 group and a Microsoft team. Serverless computing with an Azure Function provides the optimal solution for that. Follow these steps to create the function we need for our workflow.
In part 1 of this series we described the scenario for our Office 365 groups governance toolkit. In this part we will setup a workflow for the Office 365 and Microsoft Teams provisioning. Workflows help to follow specific processes for a successful collaboration.
Offering self-services for users is a key to reduce workloads on the IT department and to allow users to cover their requirements quickly while the organization's policies are enforced during the process. A frequently asked request is how to provision a new Microsoft Team in Office 365 in a secure and monitored way. See how this can be implemented here.
To allow an app to create a Microsoft group or team programmatically in a workflow, we will use the Microsoft Graph API, Azure Functions and Flow or Logic Apps. With these technologies, we can create powerful workflows to offer a self-service for users to create a team when needed, approved by the manager and being provisioned with all the necessary properties and permissions.
IT-Governance is an important topic, especially in large organizations. At Microsoft Ignite conference, we showed the "Groups Governance Toolkit" with a bunch of useful tools to regulate and monitor Office 365 groups and Microsoft Teams. Here, we will show the step-by-step guidance how to implement that toolkit with Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure. Let's start with an overview what topics we cover in this article series.
