O365 administrator sign-in
The first time you ever set up the integration in your digital workplace, your Office 365 administrator must sign in to it using the Sign in as Microsoft Admin link on the authentication prompt of the integration. This only needs to be done once per Office 365 environment. Once an O365 administrator grants permissions to the app, the integration can be used anywhere in your digital workplace without additional administrator approvals.
After an O365 administrator grants permissions, edit the integration to disable and hide the Sign in as Microsoft Admin link.
