MC477010: Basic auth retirement for Office 365 Reporting Web Service

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.
