  • For example, create an unlicensed Office 365 user account without O365 admin rights.

  • For view only access to o365, add user to the “View-Only Organization Management” admin role in the Exchange Admin Center. This role should provide UnitySync the rights needed to run the powershell commandlets utilized by UnitySync
