Office 365: Limiting Access to Office 365 Services using ADFS CAPs

by Henrik Walther [Published on 9 Nov. 2013 / Last Updated on 9 Nov. 2013]

So as some of you know, we have the capability of limiting access to Exchange Online in Office 365 on the ADFS level using so called client access policies (CAPs).

However, if you utilize other Office 365 services than Exchange Online, you should be aware of the following important detail:

"All client access policy scenarios have the effect of blocking external access to Microsoft Lync Online and Office Subscription Services."

Yes in effect that means that you will also block access to Lync Online and the the Office 2013 Click to run subscription service.

This information has also been added to the relevant TechNet documentation: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh526961(v=ws.10).aspx

Until later,
Henrik Walther
