Step 4: Set up SharePoint API Integration

If no activity is received after 24 hours, contact MVISION Cloud Support.

  1. Go to Settings > Service Management.
  2. Click Add Service Instance
  3. Select Microsoft SharePoint Online.

  1. Login to your MVISION Cloud tenant and go to Settings > Service Management.
  2. Select your SharePoint instance and click the Setup tab. 
  3. Confirm that the API is connected and running properly.

Continue to Step 5.

Find the SharePoint Admin Center URL

Your SharePoint admin center is typically https://<Office 365 tenant IT>-admin.sharepoint.com

For example, if your tenant ID is abccorp.onmicrosoft.com, then your SharePoint Admin center URL will be https://abccorp-admin.sharepoint.com.

Confirm this by navigating to the SharePoint Admin console:

  1. Login to Office 365 dashboard with an account that has Global Admin permissions.
  2. Select the Admin tile.
