ADOneAgent-Commands-Actions-M365Mailbox-icon M365 Mailboxes Configuration

Automatically configure mailboxes in Microsoft 365 based on a specific Active Directory attribute


If your organization uses a Microsoft 365 tenant and Active Directory users are synchronized in Azure AD with tools such as Azure AD Connect you can use this action to automatically configure mailboxes in Exchange Online after users have been synchronized in the cloud.


After the configuration is complete, activated and executed in the scheduler, the algorithm finds the mailboxes that meet the trigger conditions and then configures those without configuration and those that are configured with different parameters than those set.

Procedure description: is a descriptive text that appears in the main grid, the description is also used by the software as an identifier of the action and therefore no duplicates are allowed for this field.


Credentials... must contain a set of credentials that are used by the service to perform mailbox configuration in the Microsoft 365 tenant. Global Administrator or Company Administrator group privileges are required. It is recommended to create a service account, dedicated to this type of operation and not to use people accounts. See Manage Credentials for more information on creating and managing service accounts.


Scheduler waiting time... is the time that must elapse after the execution of the action is completed, during the wait time no action is performed and the service communicates with the user interface only to show the remaining time with a countdown.


Activate this action in Adone Agent UI scheduler: activate the action in the action execution sequence and then when the service is activated with the Execute Now command the action will be processed in the scheduled sequence according to the order of the OE property (execution order) in the main grid.


User attribute to evaluate for configuration: contains a list of attributes that you can use as placeholders for mailbox configuration, currently the following attributes are supported: City, Country, Department, DomainName, State, Title, UsageLocation. The recommended attribute is Department.


Attribute value: is the trigger value for mailbox configuration, in our example, all users who have "Students" as the value in the "Department" attribute will be inspected by the mailbox configuration algorithm.


Language, Time zone, Date format, Time format, Address book policy, are the mailbox configuration parameters. The Address book policy field is only usable if the organization has created custom address books in Exchange Online, otherwise it is always Default.
