#Lync Question 17: Can you setup Oauth between On-Premise Lync Server 2013 and Office 365

Having somewhat gone round the houses with this with a hybrid deployment recently as both:

Both of which required Unified Contact Store (UCS) which has a prerequisite for Oauth.


Exchange Server and SharePoint Integration Support

“Server-to-server authentication between an on-premises server and an Office 365 component is not supported in this Lync Server 2013 release.

So it maybe following the O365 upgrade/transition from 2010 to 2013 is completed and/or another update to Lync Server and/or Office 365.
