Active Roles Add-on for Office 365 enables ActiveRoles to create Microsoft Office 365 cloud users, groups and contacts for your on-premises Active Directory users, groups and contacts, and allows their properties to be synchronized from ActiveRoles to the cloud. The add-on uses Quick Connect to perform data synchronization from ActiveRoles to Office 365, allowing you to create and administer Office 365 users, groups and contacts from the ActiveRoles Web Interface.
What’s new in this version
• Version 2.2 adds support for Quick Connect Sync Engine 5.3.0, Quick Connect for Cloud Services 3.5.0, and ActiveRoles 6.9.0. You can use Active Roles Add-on for Office 365 2.2.0 in conjunction with those latest versions of ActiveRoles and Quick Connect.
• Create Office 365 users rather than mailboxes. When you create an Office 365 user, you can choose whether to license that user for Exchange Online.
• Create security groups and distribution groups in Office 365. You can choose the type of the Office 365 group that you want to create.
• Assign licenses to Office 365 users. When creating or administering a user, you can choose the Office 365 licenses that you want to assign to that user.
• Delegate the task of assigning Office 365 licenses. By allowing read/write access to individual edsvaOffice365-License-* user attributes, you can specify what licenses the delegated administrator can assign to Office 365 users.
• Restrict the licenses for Office 365 users. You can configure a policy to specify what Office 365 licenses can be assigned depending on user location in Active Directory.
• Restrict the domains for Office 365 users and groups. You can configure a policy to specify what Office 365 domains can be selected depending on user or group location in Active Directory.
• View or change the Office 365 specific object properties. You can edit Office 365 users, groups and contacts.
• Examine Office 365 licenses and license usage. For each of your license subscriptions, you can view how many licenses are valid, expired or assigned. This information is displayed on the add-on application page in the ActiveRoles console.
• Examine Office 365 domains. For each of your Office 365 domains, you can view the status of the domain and see whether the domain is configured for single sign-on (federated). This information is displayed on the add-on application page in the ActiveRoles console.
• Associate existing Office 365 users with on-premises Active Directory users. The synchronization workflow uses the GUID and the primary SMTP address to match an existing Office 365 user to the appropriate on-premises Active Directory user.
