Microsoft will begin deprecating Basic Authentication.
Although Microsoft has moved their deprecation date from October to December, we still encourage all Tigerpaw users impacted to make necessary changes now to avoid future service disruptions. Tigerpaw is providing an interim solution for the existing Exchange Integrator to ensure your team does not experience service disruptions. As previously announced, we will be releasing an entirely new version of the Exchange Integrator. However, the new Exchange Integrator will not be available until the Tigerpaw 22.4 upgrade, which will be released in November.
It is likely that Microsoft won’t shut this feature down all at once. It will happen in waves, but it is difficult to predict when it will impact each user. To reduce the chance of downtime, we encourage customers to review the following details to ensure you are prepared for this change.
To take full advantage of this date extension, please follow the instructions HERE.
For detailed information, please specify your product:
Desktop Users: If you are running Tigerpaw 19.5 or lower, you will need to upgrade to v22.3 (available now) and make these updates to the Exchange Integrator

What is Basic Authentication and why is being it discontinued?
Basic authentication relies on user name and password to determine if a user or application should be granted access. The new method, called modern authentication or Oauth 2.0, utilizes tokens and is far more effective at reducing security risks. Oauth tokens enforce credential expiration dates and give administrators greater control over exactly which users or applications may log in, as well as what features or information each user or application can access.
