6.6.3.Exchange login provider
The Microsoft Exchange login provider is one of the external authentication providers. It will allow the users to use their email address and mailbox password to log into contentACCESS. With this method, contentACCESS will use the entered credentials and will try to open the user’s mailbox through Exchange Web Services (EWS). If it succeeds, then the user will be logged into contentACCESS. The user’s password is not stored inside contentACCESS, it is managed only by Exchange. The only prerequisite for this login type is that there should be Email archive configured for a tenant. It is also possible to create users with Microsoft Exchange login types manually.
