Grant tenant-wide admin consent

You have to do the admin consent before using KONNEKT with regular users.


KONNEKT is an application that interacts with several Microsoft 365 APIs. Therefore it needs permission to do so in each Microsoft365 tenant, KONNEKT wants to connect to. One level (but not the only one) of this permission is the Enterprise App Consent in Microsoft Entra ID (Azure AD). It is a major advantage over legacy approaches such as network- or proxy-based access controls for client types, since it is working at every place and allows very granular permissions.

The admin consent for KONNEKT is for "delegated access", only (please see Microsoft docs for more details on permissions and consent). This basically means that users in this tenant are allowed to use this app to access the requested M365 services/APIs. This does not enable the app to access without the user.

KONNEKT requests the following permissions to be consented:

API NameClaim valuePermission

Microsoft Graph


Sign in and read user profile

Office 365 SharePoint Online


Read and write items in all site collections

Office 365 SharePoint Online


Read and write user files

Windows Azure Active Directory


Access the directory as the signed-in user

Windows Azure Active Directory


Sign in and read user profile

Since some of the permissions require to be consented by an admin, you have to do the admin consent before using KONNEKT with regular users.

You can learn more about managing consent to applications and evaluate consent requests in the Microsoft docs.
