Verified Admin Private Content Mode in Yammer


Private content in Yammer should be just that - private. However, sometimes there is a need for a Verified Admin to look into private messages or other content. Verified Admin of a Yammer network can now temporarily grant access to private content to investigate issues, and then turn off access again to go back to default mode. A new admin setting will allow for a Verified Admin to toggle between “ Default Mode" and "Private Content Mode". These are the steps to grant Verified Admin access to private content on Yammer: · Log in to Yammer as a verified admin. · Go to Settings > Network Admin. · Under Content and security, select Content Mode. · Select Private Content Mode and choose Save. When this mode is selected, a VA can see private conversations or content in private groups. A banner will show that this VA is viewing private content. Private content is only visible to the VA who turned on Private Content Mode, not all VAs in the network. They can then go back and set the network to the default mode, where private content is not visible to verified admins. **Attention Developers!** This change affects our REST APIs when using a Verified Admin token to ingest network data. If you would like your App to remain unaffected and still receive private content you will need to set the Private Content flag on. If your integration requires a Verified Admin token to access private content, the VA must activate their "Private Content Mode". To activate Private Content Mode programmatically, using the VA API credentials, POST a http request to the following endpoint https://www.yammer.com/api/v1/supervisor_mode/toggle with the following raw body: {"enabled": true}. The endpoint will return the following body if the activation was successful: { "status": "success', "supervisor_mode": true } ***This will not affect Data Export.
