Granting Impersonation Rights

NetGovern Archive uses PowerShell over EWS in order to communicate with Exchange and Exchange Online in Office 365. The archive job logs in to each specified account using a single administrative account. This account must have access rights to all of the accounts it needs to archive. This is done through the use of impersonation rights (also called application impersonation), which gives a single user the ability to access all other accounts or individually specified accounts.

NetGovern Archive requires an administration account. This account can be a global administrator or it can be a standard user account, as long as it has been granted impersonation rights to other accounts and is a member of the "Exchange Management Group" Full or Read/Only.
