Delegate365 changelog 9.2-improvements

The next version of Delegate365 is here. Delegate365 v9.2 follows the last update v9.1. This update includes a bunch of helpful features and improvements such as SharePoint sites management, Group OU improvements, report improvements, a new message trace job and more. See a description of the new features here.

Delegate365-Goodbye, Basic Authentication

Delegate365 provides a toolbox for easy management of a Microsoft 365 tenant. Management ranges from Exchange Online to Azure AD, SharePoint Online, Reporting and Intune. Delegate365 communicates with the Microsoft 365 services via apps and Modern Authentication, wherever possible. However, a service account had to be used for some Exchange features and the multi-factor authentication management. This will change with the next versions.

PowerShell package 'Az.Accounts' failed to download

I recently ran into this problem: I had to install the Azure Az PowerShell module from the PowerShell Gallery on a new computer. Interestingly the installation with Install-Module -Name Az failed with the error message "WARNING: Source Location 'https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2/package/Az.Accounts/1.9.3' is not valid.". See my solution here.

SPFx App webpart is blocked in various browsers

Recently, I stumbled across a strange behavior when running self-developed SPFx webparts in various browsers. When the SPO app was deployed, it worked well with Single-Sign-On, but in some browsers, the webpart was blocked. Instead, a grey box saying "login.microsoftonline.com refused to connect." was displayed. I experienced that behavior in Chrome, and Edge, while FireFox, Safarai and Opera showed the webpart. Also, there was a different experience when working in the normal mode, or in the In-Private mode. If that happens to you, check out the solution here.

Get Administrator roles and Privileged Identity Management roles of an Azure AD tenant

To ensure the security of your Microsoft 365 client, we recommend implementing an appropriate governance and security strategy. An effective measure is to determine the current administrators and their permissions. In this article, we want to identify administrators with permanent roles and administrators who can use roles with Privileged Identity Management (PIM). PIM provides just-in-time privileged access to Azure AD and Azure resources. See how to find all Administrators, including PIM, here.

How user profile picture synchronization works in Microsoft 365

From an historical point of view, various single services such as Exchange and SharePoint Online have been integrated into Office 365, or as it´s named now, Microsoft 365. The platform shows user profile pictures, and syncs that between the services, depending on the service (licenses). Since this can be a little bit confusing, we now have a good article explaining the user profile sync.

Delegate365-Working with guest users

Delegate365 supports working with guest users. Guest users or external users are users that are invited to the company tenant by email. Once they accept the invitation, they get access to corporate resources. For example, a guest user can be a member of a Microsoft team or collaborate in Planner or in a SharePoint site or similar. See some samples here.
