Setup Your Microsoft Graph API Information in Borealis

Requirements: You must have the Superuser role and SAML needs to be activated for your Borealis instance.

Using the Microsoft Graph API to send the Smart Comms allows Borealis' clients to use their own infrastructure/domain (via a Microsoft Entra app) instead of having Borealis send the Smart Comms on their behalf (accomplished using a DKIM and SPF key). This, in turn, allows Borealis' clients to have tighter security since they do not allow other domains (e.g. : Borealis' domain) to send emails on their behalf.

The Microsoft Entra app can even be further configured to only allow sending as a certain user (or subset of users).
