Issue/Introduction

Microsoft Office 365 (O365) is a cloud hosted group of software plus services subscriptions that provides productivity software and related services to its subscribers. CA Identity Manager introduced a connector in Identity Manager (IM) 14.1 to enable access to O365 (details can be found in the link below), however there are some limitations.

Environment

Release : 14.1, 14.2, 14.3 vAPP and on-premise.

 

Resolution

The CA IM O365 connector can manage membership/ownership of “cloud-only” distribution lists (DLs), however the current connector for O365 does not support the following

  • Create “cloud-only” Distribution lists
  • Create “cloud-only” shared mailboxes
  • Manage permissions of all shared mailboxes

Additional Information

As referenced above, O365 features were added in 14.1
