Configuring MS Teams for Interact

This guide will enable you to add your Intranet into MS Teams. Your Intranet will be accessible in MS Teams Desktop, MS Teams Web and the MS Teams mobile application.


You will need to do the following activities:

  • Create a new Enterprise application within Azure Portal
  • Configure Interact for Teams authentication

Azure Settings

Create a new Enterprise application within Azure with the following settings.

Navigate to overview/app registrations & click create new registration.

Enter application name, this can be anything suitable for the application.

Select single-tenant account types, to ensure only accounts within your organisation can use the teams application.

The page must be set up as a single page application
In the section titled "Redirect URI (Optional)"

  • Select single-page application (SPA)
  • Enter value https://{Your_Intranet_URL}/MicrosoftTeams/Display

Click Register



The MS Teams integration requires the Teams login to authenticate against the user's email address associated with their intranet profile. If the Teams login and the intranet profile email addresses differ, a blank screen will be displayed when the intranet is opened in Teams.

  • Navigate to the Authentication tab
  • Enable Access Tokens & ID tokens.

Expose an API

Navigate to the Expose an API tab.

Application ID URI

Click Set to configure the Application ID URI

api://{Your_Intranet_URL}/3e869b05-24a8-4cfa-b142-e92065be57e2 - It will automatically suggest a new GUID which can be used.


Click Add a scope

This scope is utilised by the Teams Authentication Library and must be in this exact format as shown below.

Authorized client applications

Click Add a client application

Add both of the GUID's below (one at a time). You must use these GUID's as they are listed below, they are standard MS Teams GUID's for the Interact application.

The page should now look like this...

Api Permissions

Add the following permission: access_as_user which will have become available since adding it as a scope in the previous section. This scope is utilised by the Microsoft Teams Authentication Library, therefore required to access the user from the Teams client.
