Active Roles 7.2 - Whats New

Office 365 License Management for hybrid users

Key new features > Office 365 License Management for hybrid users

Active Roles 7.2 provides the facility to assign or modify the Microsoft Office 365 licenses assigned to on-premises users synchronized to Office 365. You can perform the following Office 365 license management tasks for hybrid users:

  • Assign Office 365 licenses to new hybrid users
  • Assign Office 365 licenses to existing hybrid users
  • Modify or remove Office 365 licenses assigned to hybrid users

NOTE: When a user is de-provisioned or deleted, all the licenses that were assigned to the user are removed and can be assigned to other hybrid users.

On performing an undo-deprovision operation on a hybrid user, the license assignment gets restored to the user on successful completion of the operation.
