To set permission to allow the user to use Klaxon App, go to Teams App > Permission Policies.

Click the “Global (Org-wide default)” link or add a new policy; please set the following: Custom apps setting should set to either

  • “Allow all apps”, or
  • “Allow specific apps and block all others” and Add Klaxon as the allowed app.

To test the configuration, please logon to Klaxon via and send a notification.
