Delegation & Policy Control Reporting Tenant Management System Settings About

How To...

Quest Nova provides granular delegation and policy control for Office 365, enabling you to assign pre-defined roles and responsibilities to specific users, such as help desk operators, country-level administrators, or even end-users – setting boundaries far more precise than native delegation. Nova also includes policy-based automation for authorization, service configuration and license assignment.

Configure Nova DPC to use OAuth

Some organizations might want to use OAuth for authorization of actions performed by Nova Delegation and Policy Control, rather than service accounts. To do this, follow these steps:

1.Go to Microsoft Entra ID

2.Go to Roles and Administration

3.Locate the DPC application, as shown below:


4.Grant Exchange Administrator and User Administrator roles for the application.

After this, Nova DPC will use OAuth for authentication.

Invite guest users to a tenant

A delegated administrator can be given the ability to invite guest users into a tenant. Here is how that's done:

1.On the create users screen, there is a new button called Invite user

2.When that button is clicked, a pop-up appears asking you to specify the target OU, and the email address of the person to be invited.

3.To enable a delegated administrator to easily see the type of user in a list of users, a new field was added:



NOTE: When inviting guests it is expected that an underscore (_) will be used instead of the at sign (@) in domain names.


Search for external users or guests in a tenant

You can search for users in order to perform operations on them. In some Office 365 tenants there might be guest accounts (also known as guest users, or external users).

In order to search for those users you can search for #EXT# in the User principal name field.
