In this final article of this Tutorial Series we will go over the process to create an user on-premises and what we have to do on our side to enable such user access to Office365 for instance.
Creating a local user on-premises..
That is the easy part, logged on your on-premises environment, open the Active Directory Users and Computers and create a new user, in our case we will name it user03.
After creating the user, let’s change it to our UPN that we have on Azure (@AndersonPatricio.info)
Windows Azure and the new user…
In the next replication cycle we will have a new user in Windows Azure as shown in the figure below.
Office365 and the new user..
Now, let’s log on on Office365 environment using the same credential that we use to manage Windows Azure.
If we go to users and groups on the Admin Center, we can see the same user03 which makes totally sense since the Directory where the Azure and Office365 are getting that information is the same.
Now we can select one or more users from the list, and we will have the option Activate synced users on the right side. Click on it.
Then we have to assign licenses to the user and click on Save.
The results of the operation will be displayed on the following page. Click on Finish
The end-user can go to office365.com and type in his/her username (firstname.lastname@example.org) and then click Next.
A new page requesting username and password will be displayed. Note that the user is using the same password that he has on-premises because it was synchronized through Windows Azure Active Directory Sync Tool previously.
After logging on the user will receive the initial welcome page on Office365.
