GPO settings, powershell and office 365

Dear Experts

could anyone please explain about the solutions you have possible in your enviroment;

all my users are using windows 10 and heavily using office 365

how can I enable service desk team to use powerhsell from their desk for basic task on office 365?

requirement I have is to allow them to do their job via powershell from their work laptops for day to day task. Managing mailboxes etc..  Can this be done via GPO settings?

I think basic auth is not allowed via windows 10?

To manage the mailboxes, assuming your mailboxes are all on O365, create a group in O365 and then assign the group an admin role whether it be one of the default roles or a custom role you create.

If your service desk team already has admin rights to the users on o365, they just have to connect to o365 via powershell and start managing mailboxes.

Hi FOX

thanks for your input, will I still achieve this with win10 machines as basic authentication is not allowed in win10? can I  resolve this by GPO?

Or your method should be fine for service desk to do limited admin task in office 365?  ( to answer your question, yes they have admin privileges on user mailboxes
