Ability to turn off connectors
In a corporate environment, we need the ability to turn off connectors for all or individual groups and/or have control over the connectors that are made available.

We created a new UserVoice concerning this topic:
I will echo the comments that better admin tools for connectors are needed, as there is almost nothing right now. This is a big disappointment.
We currently are creating unified groups via PowerShell and are setting the ConnectorsEnabled parameter to false by default, which does work fine. However, when we enable connectors for a particular group there are now NO controls over which connectors can be added to that group. It would be nice if we could allow only specific, approved connectors to be used. Or ideally, it would be nice if an administrator could add individual connectors to groups without allowing the group owners to add other connectors.
Has there been any movement with this? Like others, we have a need to disable connectors. A few notes:
1) We disabled Add-ins at the tenant level - Which works from the Outlook client on the PC.
2) We disabled Connectors at the tenant level:
[-ConnectorsEnabled | $false
3) However when using OWA you can add any connector, then it will show up on your client on your PC.
4) Using the Outlook App (Rest-API) on an Android device I can add connectors.
5) Using the Outlook App (Rest-API) on an Apple device I cannot add connectors
Like many of you, I would think that this would be something that has to be addressed.
Admin tools for connectors are very limited.
We need to be able to control connectors at user level as well as to be able to enable or disable specific connectors that are compliant with company policies.
It'll also be good to have the habilitaty to see which connectors are being used on a group or mailbox.
Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "thisgroup" -ConnectorsEnabled:$false
In powershell I can see ConnectorsEnabled = True set when I run get-unifiedgroup, but its not available on set-unifiedgroup
