How do I add Office 365 integration to my existing PowerSchool Learning domain, and what additional options will this integration provide?
Integrating your PowerSchool Learning domain with Office 365provides a way for your users to sign into PowerSchool Learning using their Office 365 email address and password, through a Single-Sign-On (SSO) connection.
Through the process below, you will be able to take the necessary information (Client ID, Credentials Key, and Office 365 domain name) specific to your Office 365 configuration and input it into your PowerSchool Learning domain to connect the two. Let's get started!
Update these Delegated Permissions to other applications:
Windows Azure Active Directory - Access the directory as the signed in user Microsoft Graph - Have full access to all files the user can access - View users' basic profile
Scroll down towards the middle of the page and copy down the Client ID.
Scroll down to the Keys section and copy down the Key that has been generated.
Integrating the new application to your Learning domain
Navigate to Domain Control in Learning
Choose Applications > Partner Tools.
Click Settings next to Microsoft Office 365.
