Distribution Group for Anaplan Integration?
While attempting to open a service account for data integration purposes we received some pushback from our directory services team. Specifically because we requested that they open a mailbox for the service account to receive the initial password email. The software engineer on directory services recommended that we use a distribution group instead of a service account so that we don't have to pay for the O365 license.
I'm wondering where Anaplan stands on this as a best practice or what the rest of you are doing? The idea of a distribution group doesn't seem secure enough from a compliance perspective.
I'm also wondering if there is anyway around receiving the initial password via email for exception users? So that we can avoid purchasing the O365 for the service account.
