Get started with Microsoft Graph data connect (preview)

Before you can use Microsoft Graph data connect, an Office 365 administrator must take two actions, both of which enable the ability for the admin to control data movement through Privileged Access Management (PAM).

  1. Give consent to opt in to Microsoft Graph data connect through the Microsoft 365 Admin Portal, on the Services & add-ins page. This will allow data movement requests to Microsoft Azure (that is, keep full control over the data, but allow Azure resources to access it). No data is transferred unless approval for a specific pipeline is provided later.
  2. Set an approver group within the Office 365 subscription. Make sure that the approver group is not empty. Only the users in the group can approve data movement requests.

For detailed step-by-step instructions, see the Microsoft Graph data connect training module.
