Creating a Service Account automatically

To create a Service Account automatically:

  1. Open the Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Office 365 Management Console.
  2. In the left part of the page, select the Information panel section.
  3. Open the Getting started tab.

    If you have not created a Service Account, the Exchange Online Quarantine block displays the following message: A Service Account is required to access messages from Exchange Online Quarantine.

  4. In the Exchange Online Quarantine block, click the Create account button.
  5. Select the Automatically option and click Continue.
  6. Enter your Global Administrator credentials and click the Submit button.

    If your Global Administrator uses multi-factor authentication, you must turn it off before creating a Service Account. You can turn it back on later. Global Administrator credentials are only required for authorizing the creation of an account with the necessary permissions. The application no longer depends on the Global Administrator account and does not store its credentials for future use.

The application validates the specified credentials, then the application creates and configures a Service Account. The progress and results of this operation are displayed on the same page.
