ActiveRoles Server Add-on for Office 365 enables ActiveRoles Server to create and synchronize Microsoft Office 365 cloud users, groups and contacts for your on-premises Active Directory users, groups and contacts. To perform data synchronization the add-on uses Quest One Quick Connect.
When you installed the ARS Add-on for Office 365 and configured it, you can see the list of Office 365 license plans and domains on add-on configuration page in ARS console:
Now you can delegate permission to manage Office 365 users, groups or contacts. If you browse for Access Templates, you will see a new folder Office 365:
In my scenario I use "Office 365 - Manage Users" AT.
If you connect to ARS admin site and open user properties, you will see "Create Office 365 user" command:
Start user creation:
When Office 365 user is created, you can update his properties:
Or delete with "Delete Office 365 user" command.
You can use this add-on to create and administer users in Office 365 domains configured for single sign-on (federated domains) provided that you:
- Don't use the Microsoft Online Services Directory Synchronization tool.
- Have selected the add-on configuration option indicating that native sync between Active Directory and Office 365 is not activated.
This add-on is able to perform all synchronization tasks required for single sign-on to function, so you can use it instead of directory synchronization tools of Microsoft's.
If Active Directory synchronization using the Microsoft Online Services Directory Synchronization tool is activated, then this add-on can only master licensing of Office 365 users. Microsoft Online Services Directory Synchronization tool can't manage them.
