OAuth interface for Office 365 Reporting web service

Currently, users accessing Reporting Web service use “Basic Authentication” and must provide their credentials. With this feature update, Microsoft will improve the security of your tenant by replacing “Basic Authentication” access in favor of the recommended OAuth user interface which is where we will continue to invest our development resources.

Key points

  • Timing: Rollout will begin in mid-February and is expected to be complete by late February.
  • Action: Users will need to provide their credentials in the OAuth user interface instead of utilizing the “Basic Authentication” interface.

How this will affect your organization:

Customers accessing the Reporting web service from browser will now see the OAuth dialog instead of “Basic Authentication”. It will not be a significant change for users.
