Non-interactive users are often used when writing service-to-service code because they do not use up a license. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online allows for five free non-interactive users

For CRM OnPremise this is an easy action;
– Change the users Access Mode to ‘non-interactive’.

For CRM Online this is an less obivious action;
– Create User in Office365
– Assign an CRM Online License
– Assign an CRM Role (System Administrator or a certain role you want the user to have).
– Change the users Access Mode to ‘non-interactive’
– Remove the CRM Online License from the user
– Check if you can still connect with the user and you’re ready to go!
(Allow some time in between the actions, O365 needs some time for replicating the new settings)

Have fun with your 5! free service accounts!
