PowerShell – Disable Office Graph per user (opt out)

The code below will disable Graph for each individual user by clearing flags in the User Profile Application (UPA).   This allows organization to enable the Graph feature overall and Delve App, while avoiding document discovery.  Mitigates concern of accidental over sharing  (i.e. confidential data with wide open permissions).  Cheers!

User Profile Service Application (UPA) shows two properties which manage the delve features:

  • OfficeGraphEnabled   (ex = True/False)
  • DelveFlags  (ex = 2048/Null)

VIDEO – Disable Legacy Auth & Connect PNP

Even with Legacy auth disabled, you can successfully run Connect-PNPOnline. 

Video demo shows changing SPO tenant security, then how to register new AppId for Connect-PNPOnline access to all site collections in tenant.   The “AppRegNew” and “AppInv” ASPX pages can be used to establish authentication channel for PowerShell work in PNP on Office 365 tenants where Legacy Auth is disabled.

Cheers!
