Introducing Skype for Business Server User Management

The Skype for Business Server User Management solution enables Active Roles to administer Skype for Business Server user accounts. This solution provides built-in policies that synchronize user account information between Active Roles and Skype for Business Server, allowing Skype for Business Server user management tasks to be performed using Active Roles Web Interface.

With Skype for Business Server User Management, you can use Active Roles to perform the following tasks:

  • Add and enable new Skype for Business Server users
  • View or change Skype for Business Server user properties and policy assignments
  • Move Skype for Business Server users from one Skype for Business Server pool to another
  • Disable or re-enable user accounts for Skype for Business Server
  • Remove users from Skype for Business Server

Skype for Business Server User Management adds the following elements to Active Roles:

  • Built-in Policy Object containing a policy that enables Active Roles to perform user management tasks on Skype for Business Server.
  • Built-in Policy Object containing a supplementary policy that enables Active Roles to administer Skype for Business Server usersin environments that involve multiple Active Directory forests.
  • Commands and pages for managing Skype for Business Server users in the Active Roles Web Interface.
  • Access Templates to delegate Skype for Business Server user management tasks.

The Skype for Business Server User Management policy allows you to control the following factors of Skype for Business Server user creation and administration:

  • Rule for generating the SIP user name. When adding and enabling a new Skype for Business Server user, Active Roles can generate a SIP user name based on other properties of the user account.
  • Rule for selecting a SIP domain. When configuring the SIP address for a Skype for Business Server user, Active Roles can restrict the list of selectable SIP domains and suggest which SIP domain to select by default.
  • Rule for selecting a Telephony option. When configuring Telephony for a Skype for Business Server user, Active Roles can restrict the list of selectable Telephony options and suggest which option to select by default.
  • Rule for selecting a Skype for Business Server pool. When adding and enabling a new Skype for Business Server user, Active Roles can restrict the list of selectable registrar pools and suggest which pool to select by default. This rule also applies to selection of the destination pool when moving a Skype for Business Server user from one pool to another.

Skype for Business Server User Management provides a number of Access Templates allowing you to delegate the following tasks in Active Roles:

  • Add and enable new Skype for Business Server users
  • View existing Skype for Business Server users
  • View or change the SIP address for Skype for Business Server users
  • View or change the Telephony option and related settings for Skype for Business Server users

Supported Active Directory topologies

Supported Active Directory topologies

Skype for Business Server User Management supports the same Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) topologies as Microsoft Lync 2013. The following topologies are supported:

  • Single forest with a single tree or multiple trees
  • Multiple forests in a resource forest topology
  • Multiple forests in a central forest topology

Single forest

Single forest

The single forest topology assumes that the logon-enabled user accounts managed by Active Roles are defined in the Active Directory forest in which Skype for Business Server is deployed. To perform Skype for Business Server user management tasks on a given user account, Active Roles makes changes to the attributes of that use account, and then, based on the attribute changes, the Skype for Business Server User Management policy requests the Skype for Business Server remote shell to update the user account accordingly. For example, when creating a new Skype for Business Server user, Active Roles sets a virtual attribute on that user’s account directing the policy to invoke the remote shell command for enabling the new user for Skype for Business Server. When making changes to an existing Skype for Business Server user, Active Roles populates the attributes of the user’s account with the desired changes, causing the policy to apply those changes via the remote shell.
