Disable or re-enable an Azure AD user

Disable or re-enable an Azure AD user

You can use the Active Roles Web Interface to disable a user for logon to Azure. This allows you to disable a previously enabled user in Azure AD while retaining all the Azure settings that were configured for the user. The Azure AD user settings are retained for a disabled account. Hence you can re-enable a disabled user again without having to reconfigure the user.

To disable or re-enable a previously enabled user for Azure

  1. On the Active Roles Web interface Navigation bar, click Directory Management.
  2. On the Views tab in the Browse pane, click Active Directory.

    The list of Active Directory domains is displayed.

  1. Click the specific domain, Container or the Organizational Unit, and then the specific user to be disabled.
  2. In the Command pane, click Disable.

    The account is disabled and marked with a disabled icon.

  1. To enable a disabled account, select the check-box corresponding to the disabled account and in the Command pane click Enable.

    NOTE: The Enable command only appears for a disabled account.

    The account is enabled again.

Deprovision or undo deprovision Ad user

Deprovision or undo deprovision of a Azure AD user

Active Roles provides the ability to deprovision rather than delete or only disable users. Deprovisioning a user refers to a set of actions that are performed by Active Roles in order to prevent the user from logging on to the network and accessing network resources such as the user’s mailbox or home folder.

The Deprovision command on a user updates the account as prescribed by the deprovisioning policies. Active Roles comes with a default policy to automate some commonly-used deprovisioning tasks, and allows the administrator to configure and apply additional policies.

To deprovision a user for Azure

  1. On the Active Roles Web interface Navigation bar, click Directory Management.
  2. On the Views tab in the Browse pane, click Active Directory.

    The list of Active Directory domains is displayed.

    A message is displayed prompting you to confirm the account deprovision.

  1. Click Yes, to continue

    Wait while Active Roles updates the user.

    After the task is completed, a message is displayed that the account is deprovisioned successfully from Active Roles.
