How do I revoke app permissions for Exact Online?

Go to Dutch version

Invantive products can exchange data with Exact Online companies through an app registration. This can be a proprietary app registered through the Exact Online App Store or a standard app from Invantive or one of our partners. For standard apps, the partner takes care of the registration in the App Store.

With the first use of an app - after authentication - permission is requested to exchange data using the so-called “Consent Flow”. Here, both the companies can be chosen (Dutch) (“division scoping”) and the data to which permissions are requested can be checked (the “scopes” or “data scoping (Dutch)”).

In this topic, you will learn how to revoke permissions on Exact Online later in time.

Perform the following steps to revoke app permissions:

  1. Go to "My Exact Online by clicking on your name in the upper right corner.
  2. Choose “Security Center” on the left side.
  3. Find the relevant app under “Permissions.”
  4. Click on “Revoke.”

The steps are visualized again below:

The revocation becomes active immediately. Once the app is used again, the app will have to be re-authorized by logging on using the “Consent Flow”. Additional bonus is that then also “All current and future administrations” can be selected as described in Nieuwe Exact Online administratie niet zichtbaar in Invantive Cloud voor Power Query/BI - 2 van forums (Dutch).
