Auto-Discovery Setup

For administrators only.

Users have to link their Self-Service Portal Account to Marvin (see below). This uniquely identifies the user and link the Teams Account (Azure AD) to a person object in the Service Management Platform. To make it as easy as possible to link the Self-Service Portal Account, we recommend to configure auto-discovery. This ensures the Self-Service Portal URL is recognized automatically in the linkage process.

Please make sure to integrate auto-discovery.
