Enhancements to Azure AD and Office 365 functionality

Active Roles 7.2 provides the following enhancements for Enhancements to Azure Active Directory and Office 365 functionality:

  • Azure License Reporting - Azure Licenses Report displays the Office 365 licenses that are available and assigned to a user.
  • Visual indicator for Azure configuration status - Azure Health Check page informs you about the Active Roles to Azure AD connectivity status, and the Active Roles Azure AD tenant and application heath status.
  • Granular license customization - License management can be performed through provisioning policy. For Example I want to assign Exchange Online license to all the newly created users automatically so that when a new user is created a mailbox should be provisioned for him Also users will be able to set particular licenses to particular users based of user’s attributes For Example: If the designation is Manager then assign a particular license
  • Support for synchronized identity environments - In an environment where Azure AD Connect is used to sync the on-premise AD objects with Azure AD domain without federating the on-premise domain in Azure, Active Roles enables the synchronization of all the on-premise objects to Azure through Azure AD Connect and no modification to the objects is allowed in Azure directly.
  • Azure Application permissions enhancements - When an Azure AD application is registered, the administrator defines the permission scope for the application. By default, minimal permissions are assigned to every application.
  • Support for creating users, groups, and contacts in Azure/Office 365 through SPML
  • New Access Template for Azure Configuration Administrator and Azure Health Status Check:

    • Azure Config Admin access template allows the user to perform only Azure Configuration from WI
