Microsoft are revoking support for the existing Azure Application ID leveraged by third party device vendors, including Poly, and instead require a partner specific Application ID.
This change impacts you if you have one of the following deployments:
- Skype for Business Online
- Skype for Business On-premises Hybrid (with Modern Authentication)
And any of the following Poly devices:
- RealPresence Group Series
- Trio 8500 & 8800
- VVX Series
There is no impact if you have a Skype for Business On-premises Hybrid (no Modern Authentication) or a Skype for Business On-premises standalone (no hybrid) deployment.
In preparation for the 15th July 2020 change, customers need to do the following. Any future deployments likewise.
STEP 1: Tenant-wide Consent (do this first!)
A customer administrator (tenant administrator) must go to the URL below, sign-in if necessary, and accept permissions.
STEP 2: Update Firmware
I’d suggest you go with the latest available firmware, the minimum required versions are:
RealPresence Group Series: 188.8.131.52
- Link to Polycom Software Downloads.
- Note you’re likely to need a version upgrade key for the Group Series.
Link to Poly Obtain Software or System Option Keys.
Trio 8500 & 8800: 5.9.1AA
Link to 8500 Polycom Software Downloads.
Link to 8800 Polycom Software Downloads.
VVX Series handsets: 5.9.4

You’ll see a Polycom – Skype for Business Certified Phone Azure AD Enterprise Application registration.
Application ID: a850aaae-d5a5-4e82-877c-ce54ff916282
If you have Azure AD P1 or P2 subscriptions, you can see user sign-ins against the Enterprise Application from the Activity > Sign-ins tab.
