Collector reports User Principal Name (UPN)

Configure Collector to report the User Principal Name (UPN), an identifier for user accounts in an email address format. The UPN identifies users across systems and you can use it in Nexthink to enrich user objects with data from third-party services. Additionally, Collector provides a new configuration parameter for the UPN privacy level. By default, Nexthink will not import the UPN and you must change the UPN privacy level of Collector if you wish to report the UPN.

Server-to-Server OAuth for the connector for Zoom
