Administrator approval and consent for Qlik SaaS Office 365 Sharepoint Connector

Hello,

How can I get admin authorization for Qlik Office 365 Sharepoint Connector in Qlik SaaS? Who is the admin that will receive the access request notification?

I have attached below the messages received during the connection setup in Qlik SaaS.

The user that I'm using to log in when creating the connection has access to the specific Sharepoint site. What steps do I need to follow to get the authorization? I have read this article (https://support.qlik.com/articles/000101483), but I think it's related to Qlik Web Connectors for QlikSense Enterprise on-prem, not SaaS.

Thanks for your help!

I.V.

Hello,

The SaaS and on-premise version work the same way, that request will be sent either to the Application Administrator or Global Administrator on azure.

You would have to use one of those roles to register the application if this is the first time using the connector.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/manage-apps/

These are the current permissions requested when authenticating with the admin account on the connector :

Hi @DavidFosterVF ,

what the connector is doing is impersonating the user and keeping the same access level as the user that impersonates.

So it's not possible to access data that the user was not supposed to see.

Does this mean that the connector 'app', by default, overrides user security and is given access to all content in the sharepoint tenancy? My assumption/hope is that the approval message is a bit misleading and does not mention that specific site collection access is dependent on the authenticated user.
