MC318316: OAuth interface for Office 365 Reporting web service

Updated April 05, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below and provided additional details for clarity. Thank you for your patience.

Currently, users accessing Reporting Web service use “Basic Authentication” and must provide their credentials. With this feature update, Microsoft will improve the security of your tenant by replacing “Basic Authentication” access in favor of the recommended OAuth user interface which is where we will continue to invest our development resources.
