In this article, you will find a step-by-step guide to migrate your old Microsoft connector to the new one.

Why migrate?

Migration is necessary for several reasons:

Security

The new Microsoft connector allows you to maintain the double authentication system for maximum security. The permissions required are also more precise and therefore limit the possible operations of the connector.

Speed

This connector is much faster than the old one and will allow you to update your users data more quickly.

Flexibility

Soon (October 2021), you will be able to specify the mapping between your Microsoft fields and your Signitic fields as well as define the distribution of your users in your groups and entities according to the Microsoft fields.

Connector types

A type is now present on each connector:

  • Source: Retrieves your users' data from the connector

  • Destination : Update the signatures on this connector

  • Source + Destination: Combines the 2 previous types

This distinction allows you to limit the permissions requested for each connector according to your needs.

How to migrate ?

Once connected, your old Source + Destination connector will become an Outlook Web Access Destination connector. You now have a connector to retrieve your user information (Source) and a connector to update signatures on OWA (Destination).

Warning: Be sure to restore your Source connector options for features such as daily data updates.

The last step is to remove the connection with OWA and deploy our Signitic Add-in on all your Outlook (Web & Windows).
