Permissions in 365

Recently we decided to try the integration between AutoTask and MS Teams.
When using my administrative account, I can very easily connect Zapier to my 365 account.
When using my non-administrative account I get a permissions error.

Is there a guide of what permissions, and what setup in 365 is required to use Zapier?

Hi @ThaMuffinMan,

Thanks for reaching out and sorry you’re running into an issue connecting here!

It sounds like your admin (I assume that’s you in this case!) will need to go into your Microsoft Teams permissions page to grant access to users who are not admins. Here is a link to what information Zapier would need access to: https://zapier.com/apps/microsoft-teams/help

Let us know if that does the trick and please reach out with any additional questions!

Hi,

I’m having a similar issue. Our Office 365 admin would like to know exactly what permissions Zapier is requesting. I can’t find anything in the help documents, the only piece of information I could find said “Ensure your Microsoft Teams account that you're connecting to Zapier is one of the following administrator roles: Global Administrator, Security Administrator, Security Reader or Privileged Role Administrator.”. Can you list specifically what is needed, and what is the minimal permissions required? We’re not going to be using a global administrator account to connect with.

Hi @bjblackmore - generally speaking, the account connecting to Zapier needs to be one of the administrator roles that you listed: Global Administrator, Security Administrator, Security Reader or Privileged Role Administrator.

 

I have to confess that I don’t know the specific permissions, but if you were creating a specific role with the required permissions, at the very least it would need permission to use the Microsoft graph API for the account. If that’s not enough detail, or if you try that and it doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll do some more digging to see if I can find any more specifics.
