We originally communicated this change in MC318316 (January 2022). We have updated the timeline for this change and are now ready to proceed.
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.
- Timing: Rollout will begin in late January and is expected to be complete by late February.
How this will affect your organization
No immediate action required. Users could start migrating their programmatic access to Office 365 Reporting Web Service from “Basic Authentication” to “OAuth”.
What you need to do to prepare
You might want to notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
- Administrator permissions
- Office 365 for Enterprise Developers
