Azure_Overview

Active Roles (formerly known as ActiveRoles®) is an administrative platform that facilitates administration and provisioning for Active Directory, Exchange, and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) in a hybrid environment. Active Roles enables the organization to manage through the web interface and to develop a flexible administrative structure that suits their needs, while ensuring secure delegation of tasks, reduced workloads, and lower costs.

Active Roles enables synchronization of the on-premises Active Directory objects to the Azure AD.

This guide is designed for individuals responsible for performing administrative tasks using the Active Roles web interface for Azure Active Directory and Office 365. The document includes instructions to help delegated administrators and help-desk operators perform day-today Azure AD administrative activities.

NOTE: Azure AD related operations are supported only on Active Roles web interface with sites for Administrators template. Some of the operations are also supported through the Management Shell. This guide provides detailed information on the Azure AD operations.

Config ARS to Manage Hybrid AD Objects

When a user signs up for a Microsoft cloud service such as Azure Active Directory, details about the user’s organization and the organization’s Internet domain name registration are provided to Microsoft. This information is then used to create a new Azure AD instance for the organization. The same directory is used to authenticate sign in attempts when you subscribe to multiple Microsoft cloud services.

The Azure AD instance of the organization, also called the Azure AD tenant, stores the users, groups, applications, and other information pertaining to an organization and its security. To access the Azure AD tenant, we need an application that is registered with the tenant. Active Roles uses this application, also called the Azure AD application, to communicate to Azure AD tenant after providing the required consent.

The Active Roles Web Interface and Management Shell can be used to perform the Azure AD configuration tasks. The new feature in Active Roles enables you to add or modify existing tenants and applications to the management scope through the web interface and Management Shell.

NOTE: Administrative users or users with sufficient privileges only can view Azure configuration.

The following section guides you through the Active Roles web interface and Management Shell to configure Azure AD tenants and applications and synchronize existing AD objects to Azure AD.

Add an Azure AD tenant

You can use the Active Roles Web Interface to add an Azure AD tenant.

To add an Azure AD tenant

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

Figure 1: Azure Tenant Configuration

  • Azure Tenant Name: Enter the name of the Azure AD tenant
  • Azure Tenant ID: Enter the Azure AD tenant ID obtained from the default tenant created after subscribing for Microsoft Azure.

NOTE:

  • The first time you sign up for a Microsoft cloud service such as Azure, Microsoft Office 365, or Microsoft Intune, you are prompted to provide details about your organization and your organization’s Internet domain name registration. This information is then used to create a new Azure directory instance for your organization. That same directory is used to authenticate sign in attempts when you subscribe to multiple Microsoft cloud services.
  • In Active Roles Web interface, the values entered for configuring Azure AD tenant must exactly match the values configured for Azure AD, else Azure AD application creation and management of Azure AD objects fail.
  • Azure Admin User Name: Enter the administrative user name of Azure AD.

    It is recommended to use the Global Administrator account . However, Active Roles requires the following minimal role permission to manage Users and Groups along with Exchange Online permission:

    • User management Administrator
    • Exchange Administrator

  • Azure Admin User Password: Enter the password provided for the administrative user.
  • Confirm Password: Re-enter the password provided for the administrative user.
  • Azure Tenant Description: Enter the required description for the Azure AD tenant.
  1. Click Next.

    The Azure AD Tenant Type properties wizard is displayed with the following types of domains:

    • Non Federated Domain: On-premises Domains are not registered in Azure AD and AADconnect is not configured. Users are typically created with onmicrosoft.com UPN suffix.
    • Federated Domain: On-premises Domains are registered in Azure AD, AADconnect and ADFS is configured. Users are typically created with selected on-premises domain's UPN suffix.
    • Synchronized Identity Domain: On-premises Domains may or may not be registered in Azure AD and AADconnect is configured. Users may typically be created with selected on-premises domain's or onmicrosoft.com UPN suffix.
  1. Select the appropriate domain type and click Finish.

The newly added Azure AD tenant is displayed in the Azure Tenants list.

NOTE: If the Tenant type is selected as Federated Domain or Synchronized Identity Domain, the Azure properties fields on Azure properties wizard of the Azure User, Group, or Contacts that are created are greyed out and cannot be edited.
