To assist with this, the instructions below should allow you to generate the proper credentials in order to set up Azure, Intune, and other Microsoft Integrations.

PLEASE NOTE: That these instructions are for an external system, and that system is subject to change without warning. If you have any questions or need any assistance with this process, please contact your Oomnitza customer success manager or email
