Setup guide for Exchange
A step by step guide on how to configure Meetio apps against Exchange.
When you configure the Meetio apps connection to Exchange you will need two addresses:
Exchange Control Panel (ECP) – Where you administer your Exchange.
Exchange Web Services (EWS) – The web service Meetio connects to and pulls the booking information.
These are most likely to be at https://[Exchange Server FQDN]/ECP/ and https://[Exchange Server FQDN]/EWS/Exchange.asmx.
As an alternative your you can run the the following Exchange Powershell:
New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName meetio -Alias 'Instant Booking' -Database -Name Meetio -OrganizationalUnit -Password -FirstName 'Meetio' -Displayname 'Instant Booking' -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $false
- Connect to ECP and navigate to Recipients > Resources in the left menu.
- Click on the + icon and choose Room Mailbox.
- Give a name to the room and a unique e-mail address.
- Save and repeat for all the rooms you want to book through Exchange.
You can give full access through ECP (Recipients > Resources), choose each room resource and Edit. In the popup window choose the menu option Delegate and in the last section Full Access you click the + icon and add the service account you created in step 1.
If you rather use Exchange Powershell you can use the following command:
Get-User -identity [Room Resource E-mail] | Add-MailboxPermission -User [Service Account E-mail] -AccessRights 'FullAccess'
Calender type: Exchange
Server address: Your EWS address (most commonly https://[Exchange Server FQDN]/EWS/Exchange.asmx)
Exchange user: The e-mail (primary SMTP) of the service account created in step 1.
Password: The password of the service account created in step 1.
Room address: The e-mail address (primary SMTP) of the room resources created in step 2.
Press Save and close and you are done.
