Hi ,
Welcome to the Support Portal. How can we help?

Step 1. Create a client application in Azure

Table of Contents



First, we need to create a client application in Azure for the AD synctool with the appropriate API permissions. This way, the Workspace its API accepts information from the synctool. 


We recommend creating the required Azure AD application via Azure AD.

  1. Go to Azure AD (https://portal.azure.com) and log in as an administrator.
  2. Go to App registrations.
    • Click New Registration.
    • Fill in a name.
    • Click Register.
  3. Go to API Permissions
    • Add the permissions below.

      Be sure you select Microsoft Graph -> Application permissions.

      Be sure to grant admin consent on the permissions.

  4. Go to Certificates & Secrets. 
    • Click New client secret.
    • Fill in a description for the client secret.
    • Set the expiration date.
      IMPORTANT: Be aware that when the client secret expires, the synctool will also stop working. Tip: after renewing the client secret, schedule a reminder in your calendar to renew the client secret again shortly before its expiration date.
    • Click Add.
    • Note down the value! You will need this later on.
  5. Note down the following information from the Overview page. This information is needed for the next step. 
    • Application (client) ID
    • Tenant ID
    • Tenant name (e.g. mycompany.onmicrosoft.com)
    • Client secret (value)

Proceed to step 2
