Configure Microsoft 365 Yammer for the Next Generation API Data Protection

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

Prerequisite

Before configuring Microsoft 365 Yammer for the Next Generation API Data Protection, review the prerequisite.

  • A global administrator account is required to grant access to Netskope.

    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.

  • Make sure the Microsoft 365 account has Yammer admin access. Check your organizations' Yammer page to make sure your account has Yammer admin access:

    1. Log in to https://www.yammer.com/<replace with your-domain-name>/admin/set_admins.

    2. On the left navigation, click Admins and under Current Admins, ensure that the account you logged in with is displayed in the list.

  • 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.
