UPDATED: Setup Non-Interactive User with Non-Expiring Password

4/4/2019 2:47:00 PM

A while ago, I wrote a blog post on setting up a non-interactive user with a non-expiring password.  Since writing that post, the process has changes and I couldn't find much documentation on the process.  The part of setting up the non-interactive user hasn't changed:

Setup Non-Interactive User:

  1. Create a user in the Office 365 admin center.  Be sure to assign a Dynamics 365 (online) license to the account.
  2. Go to Dynamics 365 (online).
  3. Go to Settings > Security.
  4. Choose Users > Enabled Users, and then click a user’s full name.
  5. In the user form, scroll down under Administration to the Client Access License (CAL) Information section and select Non-interactive for Access Mode.  You then need to remove the Dynamics 365 (online) license from the account.
  6. Go to the Office 365 admin center.
  7. Click Users > Active Users.
  8. Choose the non-interactive user account and under Product licenses, click Edit.
  9. Turn off the Dynamics 365 (online) license, and then click Save > Close multiple times.
  10. Go back to Dynamics 365 (online) and confirm that the non-interactive user account Access Mode is still set for Non-interactive.
  11. In CRM assign a role to the user account.

But, the process for setting up a non-expiring password has:  To make this easy I created a small PowerShell Script.  The script is below.  Simply change the the part for the $UserEmail to the account you want to set.  What the script does is connect the user to Azure, you will need to be a global admin.  Teh checks the password policy for the user.  Then it updates the policy and shows you that it was changed.  Here is a link to the Microsoft article that I referenced when doing this.  I do want to point out that you should check the warning at the bottom of that article.

 $UserEMail = "<Replace with e-mail>"  
 Get-AzureADUser -ObjectId $UserEMail | Select-Object UserprincipalName,@{  
   N="PasswordNeverExpires";E={$_.PasswordPolicies -contains "DisablePasswordExpiration"}  
  Set-AzureADUser -ObjectId $UserEMail -PasswordPolicies DisablePasswordExpiration  
  Get-AzureADUser -ObjectId $UserEMail | Select-Object UserprincipalName,@{  
   N="PasswordNeverExpires";E={$_.PasswordPolicies -contains "DisablePasswordExpiration"}
