Microsoft Exchange Online Connector

Microsoft Exchange Online Indexing Connector for Azure Search, SharePoint Online/O365, SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint 2013

Microsoft Exchange Online lets you tailor your solution based on your unique needs and ensures that your communications are always available, while you remain in control. Manage powerful capabilities, including Data Loss Prevention and eDiscovery, from the easy-to-use web-based Exchange admin center. Role-based access helps you manage Exchange efficiently and delegate tasks. With Exchange archiving, large mailboxes, and retention policies, your users can keep important data in one place and you can take control of your storage and compliance demands.

Using the BA Insight Microsoft Exchange Online Connector, users can retrieve content from Exchange Online through SharePoint Search, Azure Search, and/or Elasticsearch. Security ensures that users will see only emails from their own mailbox, public mailboxes, and other mailboxes to which they have been granted access.  It indexes content from Microsoft Exchange Online into Azure, SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2016/2013, surfacing it through BA Insight’s SmartHub to provide users with integrated search results.

Based on our experience developing more than 70 connectors and with hundreds of customer deployments, we can tell you that building custom solutions is challenging and full of risks.
