ShortPoint aims to provide a smooth and fast integration to data sources from your Microsoft Office 365 services. You can then display these with a focus on usability, productivity, and creativity on your SharePoint page or Teams tabs. In order to make this happen, ShortPoint requires integration with Microsoft Graph.


Microsoft Graph is an application programming interface (API) that connects to your Azure AD for authentication services and allows access to your Microsoft Office 365 tenancy and its contents at any given time. More information can be found in this Microsoft article.

When pulling data from sources such as your Outlook, Power BI, or Teams applications, ShortPoint requires an authentication token signifying that the application has appropriate permissions to your tenancy. We will be able to get these through Microsoft Graph integration.

Here is a list of required permissions:

  • Read basic mail in all mailboxes
  • Read all users' full profiles
  • Read all user mailbox settings
  • Read all groups
  • Read calendars in all mailboxes
  • View user’s groups
  • View all groups
  • View all reports
  • View content properties
  • View all datasets
  • View all dashboards
  • View all workspaces
  • View all capacities
  • Sign in and read user profile

As we build new functionalities in ShortPoint, new permissions will also be required and updated.
