1. Before you start, make sure you have the right permissions to access the SharePoint Admin Center of your Office 365 tenant – to do so try to open this link

2. Locate your KanBo web.config and open it with any text editor.

3. Anywhere in the <plugins> section, add these lines:

< issuer="ISSUER">

<signature algo="hs256" password="PASSWORD"/>

<mapper type="login" roles="external-services"/>


Replace the ISSUER with the issuer name You want to use and replace PASSWORD with a secure password.


< issuer="KanBoWebPart">

<signature algo="hs256" password="Sup3rPa$word"/>

<mapper type="login" roles="external-services"/>
