Manually Granting Permissions to Office 365 | Exchange Online Mailboxes via Office 365 Admin Center

When connecting to Office 365 | Exchange Online with DigiScope the DigiScope Operator Profile (DSAdmin365) account must have full access to all mailboxes in the organization that you want to access with DigiScope.  If you would prefer to grant access only to specific vs all mailboxes, follow the steps below.

NOTE: If in the future you add more mailboxes to your Office 365 environment you will need to repeat this process so that the DSAdmin365@yourdomain.com is granted rights to the new mailboxes

NOTE: If you have a large number of mailboxes within your Office 365 environment it is recommended that you utilize Granting Permissions via PowerShell to All Office 365 | Exchange Online Mailboxes

  1. In your web browser, go to https://login.microsoftonline.com/ and log in with the Global Admin account that you will be using in DigiScope.

  2. Go to the Admin section.
