Product Updates - October 2022

1. End of Support for Basic Authentication in INSZoom Calendar Sync 

Applicable Editions: Enterprise, Professional

Applicable Country Subscription: All Countries

Following Microsoft’s end of support and deprecation guidelines, INSZoom no longer supports basic authentication for Calendar Sync using Microsoft Exchange Calendars starting September 30, 2022.

Microsoft officially announced end of support for basic authentication in September 2021. Effective October 1, 2022, Microsoft is deprecating the ability to use basic authentication for Exchange Online.

What does this mean to your Firm?

If your Firm is subscribed to Zoom Calendar Sync and you are using the ‘Exchange Calendar’ application type, you were previously prompted to provide your email address and password to authenticate and grant INSZoom access to your Exchange Calendar while setting up Calendar Sync.

Starting September 30, 2022, this basic authentication is replaced with modern authentication. All Zoom Calendar Sync users in your Firm will need to re-authenticate using modern authentication to continue syncing their Exchange Calendar with INSZoom.

How to prepare for this change?

a. Review resources from Mitratech and Microsoft to prepare for this change.

b. With modern authentication implemented, your Microsoft IT administrator is required to grant consent to your Exchange Calendar before it syncs with the INSZoom Calendar. This means you will need to work offline with your Microsoft IT administrator to determine the preferred method for granting admin consent. This is an important step and Mitratech recommends reviewing this with your Microsoft IT administrator ahead of the change scheduled for September 30, 2022.

Note: This change is not applicable if your Firm is using the Zoom Calendar Sync feature to sync events with Google Calendar and you may ignore this message.

Who can I contact for more information?

Please review this Microsoft article pertaining to the deprecation of basic authentication and reach out to your IT administrator for additional help.
