oAuth Configuration Guide

Note: We recommend to use: Automatic setup of Single Sign-On, for the Single Sign-On setup.

OAuth is an open standard for authorization, commonly used as a way for Internet users to log in to third party websites using their Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, One Network, etc. accounts without exposing their password. Generally, OAuth provides to clients a "secure delegated access" to server resources on behalf of a resource owner.

Also called, 2 factor authentication(2FA), multifactor authentication(MFA).

Be aware that when configuring oAuth, Exchange Autodiscover will not work. The Exchange server url must be set manually
