Click the icon to the right
Locate the two PowerShell scripts files from the zip-file you downloaded from Step 1.
1.) Start Windows PowerShell ISE as an administrator.
3.) Input code sent by Microsoft if prompted.
6.) It will again prompt for your Microsoft 365 admin credential and may prompt you to provide permission if this is your first time to execute. Tick 'Consent on behalf of your Organization'
7.) Once credentials are entered and permissions is granted, it will proceed to inject the DomainAuthToken to user mailboxes. This may take a while depending on the number of mailboxes. (see the preview of users)
8.) Notice the last line "Done!", It means 'DomainAuthToken' applied to all Xink Add-in users.
