New features

The following is a list of new features implemented in Active Roles 7.5:

Support for Exchange Online resource mailboxes

You can create, manage and delete room mailboxes in the Active Roles Web Interface. Room mailbox is a type of Exchange Online resource mailbox assigned to a physical location, such as a meeting room. Using room mailboxes that an administrator creates, users can reserve rooms by adding room mailboxes to meeting requests.

For more information, see Managing room mailboxes in the Active Roles Administration Guide.

OneDrive storage support in consented Azure tenants

Active Roles 7.5 reintroduces support for configuring Microsoft OneDrive storage for hybrid and cloud-only Azure users in consented Azure tenants. Find the new OneDrive configuration settings in the Azure AD Configuration > Modify (Tenant details) window of the Active Roles Configuration Center. With the new implementation, the former OneDrive settings on the Active Roles Web Interface have been removed.

For more information, see Enabling OneDrive in an Azure tenant in the Active Roles Administration Guide.

Azure Security Group support

Active Roles 7.5 introduces support for Azure AD Security Groups, allowing you to create, read, update or delete Azure AD Security Groups via the Active Roles Web Interface.

  • For more information on Azure AD Security Groups, see Groups in Microsoft 365 and Azure in the official Microsoft 365 documentation.

  • For more information on how to create, modify or delete an Azure AD Security Group, see Managing Azure Security Groups in the Active Roles 7.5 Administration Guide.

My Managed Resources support

In the Active Roles Web Interface, in Settings, you can now enable Show objects owned by inheritance or secondary ownership. Selecting this check box allows Self-Administration Web Interface users to view objects in My Managed Resources even if the user is not assigned to the objects as the primary owner (manager), but as a secondary or inherited owner.

Previously, administrators had to select this check box every time the Web Interface home page displayed to make My Managed Resources appear for users with secondary or inherited ownership, but now once it is selected, it remains the default setting.
