MC394781 (Updated) Plan for Change: Significant changes comes to the Windows Diagnostic data processor configuration As Microsoft shared through Windows message center MC391866, to enable efficiencies and help us implement our plan to store and process EU Data for European enterprise customers in the EU, we will be introducing a significant change for enterprise Windows devices that have diagnostic data turned on.

We’ll stop using policies, such as the “Allow commercial data pipeline” policy, to configure the processor option. Instead, we’ll be introducing an organization-wide configuration based on Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to determine Microsoft’s role in the data processing.

[When will this happen:]

This change will roll out initially to Windows devices enrolled in the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider program no earlier than July 2022. For other Windows devices (not in the Dev Channel), additional details on supported versions of Windows 11 and Windows 10 will be announced at a later date. These changes will roll out no earlier than the last quarter of the calendar year 2022.
Updated October 27, 2022: We have updated the timing details below. Thank you for your patience.

MC441534 Basic Authentication – Monthly Usage Report - September 2022 We're making some changes to improve the security of your tenant. We announced in 2019 that we would be retiring Basic Authentication for legacy protocols, and in September 2021, we confirmed that we would begin to disable Basic Authentication for in-use protocols beginning October 2022.

We previously communicated this change via Message Center: MC191153 (Sept. ‘19), MC204828 (Feb. ‘20), MC208814 (April ‘20), MC237741 (Feb. ‘21) and MC286990 (Sep. ’21).

You can always read the latest information about our plans to turn off Basic Authentication here.

Based on our telemetry, there may be some users in your tenant currently using Basic Authentication and we expect these users to be affected when these changes take place.

In the month of September, we detected the following usage:

Exchange ActiveSync: 89

POP: 0

IMAP: 0

Outlook Windows: 0

Outlook for Mac/Exchange Web Services: 0

Exchange Remote PowerShell: 0

Please note these numbers only reflect the count of unique users who have successfully authenticated to these services in the specified month, they do not reflect successful access to mailboxes or data (for example, a user may authenticate using IMAP, but may be denied access to the mailbox due to configuration or policy).

If you want to block users or apps being able to authenticate at all using legacy protocols, we recommend using Authentication Polices.

To investigate this usage further, we recommend you use Azure AD Sign-in Reports which can provide detailed user, IP and client details for these authentications.

With the new desktop experience, admins and editors will be able to edit content and manage permissions from Microsoft Teams. To prepare for this change, help admins and editors for Viva Connections learn more about how to customize the new home experience and how permissions work.

End users in your organization will use the same entry point in Teams as the previous desktop experience. When they view the new experience for the first time, visual prompts will walk them through the main functions of the design and how to interact with different elements. Share guidance with end users.
