Detailed Description

This handler invites a user to your Yammer network. If the inputted access token belongs to a verified admin in a paid Yammer network, external email domains can be included. If not, only email addresses for official company domains will be allowed. Any errors that happen during this process will be caught and re-raised by the handler.

Note: This handler requires a verified admin account in a paid Yammer network! (If you are an admin and still getting an error with the message "Attempt to access a protected resource failed" make sure that you are also verified.)
