Microsoft Azure Security Technologies (AZ-500): Azure Active Directory

Introduction to Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)

Official AAD URL: login.microsoftonline.com

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s cloud-based directory and identity management service that allows us to use single sign-on (SSO) access to thousands of cloud SaaS applications like Office365.

What kind of identities we can create on Azure?

  • Cloud only (identities are created on cloud)
  • Sync from Windows Server AD (on-premise or hybrid)
  • Guest users (@gmail, @outlook, etc.)
  • Federated or SSO (Users can use same identity on Azure and AWS)

What can you do under Azure AD?

  • Configure per-user MFA [1], additional cloud-based MFA settings [2], self-password reset (including authentication methods like email, mobile app notification, security questions), add new user and check user’s identity under “Users” section.
  • Create custom domain under “Custom Domain Names”.
  • Check a device state if it is AzureAdJoined, EnterpriseJoined or DomainJoined under “Devices”. [3]
  • Create or assign custom administrative roles under “Roles and Administrators”.
  • Create user group where we can assign license and set expiration time under “Group” for “Security Group” and “O365 Group”. [4]
