On October 1, 2022, Microsoft began a gradual deprecation of its current basic authorization protocol. Full deprecation of the basic authorization protocol is going to happen as of 1st of January, 2023.

To solve this issue, we have upgraded our email app to support a new type of connection: Microsoft SMTP/IMAP OAuth. By using this new selection choice, you will be able to create new connections to existing Microsoft email accounts.


If you use Microsoft as Email provider in the Action Flows Email app, make sure to update your connections using Microsoft SMTP/IMAP OAuth before the 1st of January, 2023.

To update your connection type:

  1. Go to the Action Flow and enter the “Edit” mode.

  2. Click the “Email” module where Microsoft is used as the email provider.

  3. In the “Connection” field, click Add to create a new connection (if not created before for another Action Flow in this package).

  4. As the connection type, select Microsoft SMTP/IMAP OAuth.

  5. Accept all requested permissions.

  6. Repeat this for all “Email” modules with Microsoft as the email provider.


    The connection created in step 4 can be reused for all Action Flows in the same package.

  7. Click Save and publish the Action Flows to apply your changes.

If you have any questions, reach out to Celonis support.
