Integrating with Office 365

Setting up permissions for Azure AD

Last updated by Janne Jalkanen on April 24, 2019 06:56

When you are integrating Thinglink with your Azure AD, your administrator must approve Thinglink for use. This means that your Azure Tenant administrator must approve the Thinglink connection by creating an account on Thinglink and approving the permissions for the entire tenant.

The process is simple:

  1. Contact your tenant administrator
  2. Administrator goes to http://www.thinglink.com/ and clicks on "Sign up with Microsoft 365 Login"
  3. Administrator then must check the "Consent on behalf of your organization" checkbox (see below)
  4. Administrator proceeds to create an account on Thinglink.

It is a good idea to attach then the administrator account as an admin also on your Thinglink Organization (e.g. School). If you have already set up the organization tenant id, then the admin account should already be automatically connected; you just need to promote them to the administrator group.

If this is however the first account created for your organization, the administrator should then proceed and set up the Thinglink Tenant ID.

Note: If you are using Thinglink using your Microsoft Account (MSA) you will not need to set up anything here. You are using MSA if you see a dialog asking whether you want to use your private account or your work/school account when signing in using Microsoft 365 Login, and choose "private account". The "work/school" account is your Azure AD account, and the "private" account is your Microsoft Account. Usually. Please confirm with your administrator.
