What is the Xink Web Console for Office 365?

Web Console is a simple tool to configure Xink ReRouting. Technically it is a proxy between Office 365 PowerShell console and the user. Xink web server creates PowerShell remote session and interacts with Office 365 server, then it shows the results back to the user in a form of console-like output.

The Console requires Office 365 Administrator credentials. It never saves this data, just uses to create remote session between Xink web server and Office 365.


How to open the Console

Open 'Preferences' dialog, select 'Integration' tab. Click 'Office 365' and you will find the 'Open Console' button. When clicked, the console appears as a popup window:

This command requests Office 365 accepted domain list, saves the list to Xink domain map and cache. Then it creates inbound connector, outbound connector and transport rule to catch outgoing messages.
