Frequently asked questions
What kind of permissions do I need to have in order to access Cloud App Security?
You have to be a Global admin, Compliance admin or Security admin in Azure Active Directory. It is not enough to have these roles in the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center. To set a user as a Global admin, Compliance admin or Security admin in Azure Active Directory, run the following in Windows PowerShell:
$cred = Get-Credential Connect-MsolService -credential $cred Add-MsolRoleMember -RoleName "Compliance Administrator" -RoleMemberEmailAddress "XX@XX.XX"
OR Add-MsolRoleMember -RoleName "Security Administrator" -RoleMemberEmailAddress “XX@XX.XX”
To learn how to use and set up policies to control cloud app use, see Control cloud apps with policies.
Premier customers can also choose Cloud App Security directly from the Premier Portal.
