Active Administrator for Azure AD

Streamline hybrid Azure AD and on-premises AD management from a single console

Active Administrator for Azure AD

IT administrators rely on native, web-based tools to manage users and groups in Azure Active Directory (AD). However, these native tools don’t provide a single console for managing hybrid AD or multi-tenant environments.

Active Administrator for Azure AD enables you to manage hybrid on-premises and Azure AD environments from a single console. Compared to native tools, it significantly improves AD management with universal searches and object change notifications for users, groups and objects anywhere within the console. This solution is also ideal for cloud-based Azure AD service providers because they can manage multi-tenant AD environments from a single console.

GUI-based user & group management

Manage Azure AD users and groups from the convenience of a simplified GUI.

Multi-tenant support

Manage multiple Azure AD tenants from a single console.

Enhanced searching

Search simultaneously for users and groups in Azure AD from anywhere within the console, overcoming native search capabilities.

Object-change notifications

Help protect your AD environment by receiving alerts when users or groups are modified.
