Authority Url: The authority url is MS’ authority url that is required to make connection to the app. By default this is already set to https://login.microsoftonline.com/common/. You can change the common with the name of your azure tenant if you wish to limit app access to only those present in your azure ad.

Return Url: The return url is specified in the settings of your app. See the create app document for further information. The return url is only a formality and does not have to exist, but does need to match the url specified in the setting of your app. By default this is set to http://localhost.

Apart from the settings there are also two buttons.

Admin Consent Url: opens an url in your default browser to the admin consent url required for the app, in case this has not yet been done. This requires a global admin user account in Azure to consent to. The url will only be opened if all three setting contains a value, since all three are required in the admin consent url.

Login User: Logs off and on a user. This is only required if you wish to log in with a different user or if a mistake occurred when you logged into the app. The app will also pop up when you save the settings, so you do not need to use this button under normal circumstances.

When you are done with setting the settings either press the save or cancel option to save / cancel your settings. Attempting to leave the settings tab will also prompt the save / cancellation option

Assuming a client id has been filled in, the Teams App you created will pop up with the request that you log into it. Put in your user account and password and the Teams plugin will work. If you have both a school / work and personal account under this user it will ask you to make a choice which one should be used. This should be the school / work account. If this is the first time you log into the app it will also ask you to allow the required permissions to run the Teams App.

Accept these permissions. Like said before, should there be a reason you cannot log in the app, make the necessary changes and login via the login button on the settings page.
