Integrating Active Directory with Office 365
Figure 3-1 Office 365 logon window.
For example, let’s say you create a new user account for a new employee in AD and that
user requires access to Office 365. Without federated identities, you will have to manually
create and maintain a corresponding user account in Office 365 for the new employee.
Whenever an employee leaves your organization, you will have to ensure you delete, or
disable, the user account in Office 365 in addition to deleting or disabling the employee’s
account in AD. Therefore, while cloud identities can be used in an enterprise and are easy
to implement, they are definitely not the best approach from a long-term, administration
standpoint.
Integrating Active Directory with Office 365
To fully leverage AD in Office 365, follow these general steps:
Add your domain name to your Office 365 tenant.
Set up and configure SSO through AD FS (optional; we cover this process later in this
chapter starting with the “Active Directory Federation Services” section).
Install and configure the Directory Sync tool (covered in Chapter 4).
