Disable Engyte Cloud Storage Prior to Feature Rollout for Microsoft Teams

Microsoft is continuing to add 3rd party storage providers to Microsoft Teams, with the next one being Egnyte which will rollout to all customers in mid-June as part of 63706. Microsoft is enabling this storage provider by default. If your organization implements data policies which allow for only certain storage providers to be leveraged in your environment, this is problematic – since features rollout gradually, there is no specific date in which an administrator can turn this off from the Teams Admin Center.

There is a workaround, however. You can disable it via PowerShell today using the SkypeOnlineConnector module. Download and install the SfB Online module, then run the following PowerShell cmdlets.

Accounts without MFA enabled:

Import-Module SkypeOnlineConnector
$cred = Get-Credential
$sess = New-CsOnlineSession -Credential $cred
Import-PSSession $sess
Set-CsTeamsClientConfiguration -AllowEgnyte $false

Accounts with MFA enabled:

Import-Module SkypeOnlineConnector
$sess = New-CsOnlineSession -UserName admin@contoso.com
Import-PSSession $sess
Set-CsTeamsClientConfiguration -AllowEgnyte $false

Once set, Engyte will be disabled by default when the feature rolls out to your tenant.
