O365 API's and Planned MS Decommisioning

We were notified by MS recently that on Nov 1 they will be stopping certain APIs relating to Office365.

"If you are using Outlook REST API 1.0, Office 365 Discovery Service, Office 365 Discovery Service SDF for .NET, Live Connect APIs, or Live SDK; these may need to be updated before the end of October.
For more information, please see: https://dev.office.com/blogs/outlook-rest-api-v1-0-office-365-discovery-and-live-connect-api-deprecation"

I am just looking to verify that this will not impact our IDM 4.5.6 O365 driver functions. Looking through the documentation from MS, I don't think it will but the O365 driver documentation only referenced "APIs" without mentioning which APIs (at least not that I found), so just hoping to validate what may or may not be interrupted with the upcoming MS change.

The Office365 driver from the IDM 4.5/4.6 time frame, translates XDS
events (add, modify, etc of users and groups into PowerShell commands).

The Azure driver of IDM 4.7 (maybe 4.6?) timeframe, uses Graph API over
REST to talk to Azure itself for users. And then PowerShell for Exchange
style functions in an odd and wonderful fashion.

I think you are still ok though.

Actually went and read what is changing, and the primary change is the
auth method. That is, basic auth is being replaced with OAuth which the
new Azure driver uses. The older Office365 I think does Powershell
connections which uses neither approach.

Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant version 7.250.4556.0 and above and Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell (AdministrationConfig-V1.1.166.0-GA.msi) on the same computer where you want to install Office 365 driver.

https://www.netiq.com/documentation/idm45drivers/office365/data/b11rrjn6.html


Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell (AdministrationConfig-V1.1.166.0-GA.msi) (Azure Active Directory Connection (Connect Site ID 1164)) already retired and Microsoft removed it from all download sites.
If you doesn't have your own "old" copy, you will not be able to find it anywere.

Yep - this isn’t far off from deprecated. However I’m not entirely
satisfied with the replacement as yet so hoping we have a bit more time for
that to evolve first.
