Microsoft is retiring PowerShell modules that could affect the RapidIdentity Exchange Agent, requiring affected Identity Automation customers to upgrade their RapidIdentity Exchange Agent to the new 2023.03.27 version in advance of Microsoft's change.
On March 31, 2023, all Azure AD Graph and MSOnline PowerShell cmdlets related to licensing assignment will be retired.
On June 30, 2023 all Azure AD Graph and MSOnline PowerShell cmdlets will be retired (Azure AD Graph and MSOnline deprecation announcement).
DOES THIS AFFECT YOU?
Microsoft's change will affect any environment utilizing the RapidIdentity Exchange Agent to manage Microsoft Cloud/Azure services; it will not affect environments that only utilize the RapidIdentity Exchange Agent to manage on-premise Microsoft Exchange servers.
If you’re unsure whether you’re affected, search RapidIdentity Connect Action Sets for usage of any of the following actions:
Actions to Take
If your environment is affected, then a RapidIdentity upgrade and RapidIdentity Exchange Agent upgrade must both be performed along with some Connect Action Set updates for existing functionality to continue.
The minimum, required RapidIdentity version is 2023.01.0-hotfix2 for Cloud and 2023.0.0-hotfix1 for LTS. The minimum, required Exchange Agent version is 2023.3.27.
If you are using saveOffice365MsolUser to manage licensing (user objects saved with AddLicenses or RemoveLicenses fields), then you must complete the upgrades prior March 31, 2023; otherwise, you must complete the upgrades prior to May 31, 2023.

The RapidIdentity upgrade should occur first as it will not break existing Exchange Agents.
Note: disable all Connect jobs that make a connection to your Exchange Agent during Exchange Agent upgrades.
