Thinkwise Exchange Connector Update - Important
Userlevel 3
Badge +1

As Microsoft has announced, basic authentication for the Exchange Web Services will be deprecated from October 13th, 2020.

Basic authentication will be replaced by OAuth 2.0. OAuth 2.0 is a more secure and reliable way than Basic Authentication to access data from the Exchange service.

These changes only apply to the cloud-based Exchange service, there are no changes for on-premises Exchange servers. 

Do you use the Thinkwise Exchange Connector with Exchange Online or Office 365? Then make sure you upgrade to the latest version of the Thinkwise Exchange Connector before October 13.

To setup or configure the new authentication for your Thinkwise Exchange Connector, download the latest version from TCP and follow the instruction manual on Thinkwise Docs.

If you have any questions about setting up the new authentication, please let us know.

Update: Microsoft decided to postpone disabling Basic Authentication in Exchange Online for tenants still actively using it until the second half of 2021.
