In fact, 20 customers have more than 100,000 employees actively using Teams, including Ernst & Young, SAP, Pfizer, and Continental AG, as well as Accenture, which has 440,000 employees actively using Teams. Eastern time on Monday, Microsoft notified users on Twitter that Teams was down. About an hour later, Microsoft acknowledged a lapsed certificate was the cause of the outage. 'We've determined that an authentication certificate has expired, causing users to have issues using the service,' the company said. Within an hour, Microsoft reported that it had started the deployment of a new certificate to fix the problem.

Authentication and Bring your own application

The Twitter connector now supports multiple authentication types:

  • Use default shared application
  • Bring your own application

The default shared application uses a Twitter Client application maintained by Microsoft. In this case, when you sign into your Twitter account, you'll be asked to consent to the Microsoft Power Platform application.

With 'Bring your own application' option, you can use your own Twitter OAuth Client application instead of the one managed by Microsoft. Doing so will allow you to control permissions and enable certain limitations on the use of the connector.

To use your own Twitter OAuth Client application with the Twitter connector, you'll need to perform the following steps:

  1. Create an OAuth client application using Twitter developer page (https://developer.twitter.com)
  2. Use the application in the Twitter connector

Creating an OAuth Client Application in Twitter

To create your own Twitter OAuth client application, you'll need to first sign in to https://developer.twitter.com.Navigate to the 'Projects & Apps' section which is where you can manage and create twitter applications.This process is explained in Twitter's Twitter Developer Guide. After creating twitter app on developer page following steps are required for proper setup:

  • Select your twitter app
  • Edit app permissions to enable read and write.
  • Edit authentication settings
    • Enable 3rd party authentication
    • Add 'https://global.consent.azure-apim.net/redirect' for the callback URLs (NOTE: If you are using Fairfax subscription or GCC environment look at 'Fairfax and GCC callbacks' section)
    • Set 'Website URL' (required field, but it's value does not affect the flow)

Fairfax and GCC callbacks

If you are using Fairfax subscription or GCC environment add the following URLs for the callback URLs of your Twitter app:

  • For Fairfax:
  • For GCC:

Once you're done, select your twitter app and navigate to the 'Keys and tokens' page. In the 'Consumer Keys' section, click on 'View Keys' button, to get the API key and the API key secret of your app. You can now use those values in your Twitter connection.

Using your own application in the Twitter connector

Once you create the Twitter OAuth client application, you can use it while creating a Twitter connection.

  • Select Bring your own application.
  • Specify the Client ID and Client secret values from your application. (Use the API key and the API key secret of your Twitter app)

Click on Sign in to sign into your Twitter account. This will prompt you to sign in to your Twitter account, and then authorize access to the Twitter app that you created above.

Service health for Microsoft Teams is displayed on the Microsoft 365 admin center. Before troubleshooting issues, it's a good practice to verify that the Teams service is healthy. Go to the Teams Service Health console to review the service health.

Microsoft Outage Today

Also, keep in mind that, Microsoft Teams is built on top of additional Microsoft 365 or Office 365 services, so when looking at Service Health, remember to also check the status of Exchange, SharePoint, and OneDrive for Business. Service Health issues for these other services does not automatically mean that Teams is impacted (e.g. Address Book downloads in Exchange are unavailable), but that you should review the advisories for those affected services to determine if there is an impact to Microsoft Teams.
