In Qlik Application Automation when trying to connect a connector of the Office 365 suite, some users will experience the following message during the authentication flow:



This error can show up for the Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Onedrive, Microsoft Sharepoint and Microsoft Excel connectors and depends on your Office 365 tenant. This setting can be found in the Azure Active Directory portal underneath User Content Settings. Direct Link:

Most organizations will have selected the option to Allow User Consent from verified publishers for selected permissions. To make use of the connectors some permissions will have to be classified as low impact. These classifications can be done on the page Permission classifications. Direct Link:

The following scopes will have to be classified as low impact for the different connectors:

Microsoft Teams

  • User.Read
  • profile
  • openid
  • Team.ReadBasic.All
  • email
  • offline_access
  • ChannelMessage.Send
  • Channel.ReadBasic.All

Microsoft Sharepoint

  • Files.Read.All
  • Files.ReadWrite.All
  • Sites.Read.All
  • Sites.Manage.All
  • Sites.ReadWrite.All
  • offline_access
  • User.Read

Microsoft Onedrive

  • Files.ReadWrite.All
  • User.Read
  • offline_access

Microsoft Excel

  • Files.ReadWrite.All
  • User.Read
  • offline_access


To allow users access to all the team scopes, the permission classification page would look the following:


Microsoft Teams ( with admin consent )

This connector will always require admin consent and these scopes cannot be classified as being low impact.
