Configure Microsoft 365 SharePoint GCC High for the Next Generation API Data Protection

To configure Microsoft 365 SharePoint GCC High for the Next Generation API Data Protection, follow the instructions below.

Prerequisites

Before configuring Microsoft 365 SharePoint GCC High for the Next Generation API Data Protection, review the prerequisite.

  • A global administrator account is required to grant access to Netskope. Post-grant, you can either delete or downgrade this account.

    Note

    The way permissions work in Azure/Office 365 is that Netskope requires an administrator to grant enough privileges for Netskope to perform specific actions. Note that the Netskope app does not receive global admin permissions. It only receives permissions for the scope Netskope requests.

  • You must turn on audit logging in Microsoft 365 admin center. To enable audit logging, follow the steps below:

    1. Log in to https://compliance.microsoft.com/.

    2. On the left navigation, click Audit.

      If auditing is not turned on for your organization, a banner is displayed prompting you to start recording user and admin activity.

    3. Click the Start recording user and admin activity banner.

      Note

      • It may take up to 60 minutes for the change to take effect.

      • After enabling, the first application event contents can take up to 12 hours to show up in Skope IT.

    Note

    The Netskope CASB API for SharePoint [GCC High] app now require you to allow the Have full control of all site collections permission. This permission replaces the earlier Read items in all site collections permission. The new permission now allows the following:

    • Policy actions: Allows Netskope to revoke permissions from files that have violated a policy.

    • Activity scan: Allows Netskope to get notifications of the latest and most accurate permission updates for files & folders from the Microsoft Graph API.

    The Netskope CASB API app is installed in Azure AD with additional permissions once you grant access to the Microsoft 365 SharePoint GCC High app.

  5. After accepting the permissions, you will be redirected to the successful result page. Click Close.

Refresh your browser, and you should see a green check icon next to the instance name.

Note

Post grant, you can either delete or downgrade the global administrator account. To know more: Delete or Downgrade the Global Administrator Account.

You can receive audit events and standard user behavior analytic alerts in Skope IT. To know more: Next Generation API Data Protection Skope IT Events.
