We cover topics ranging from provisioning and directory synchronization to the technologies we offer for user Identity and Access Management.

    The Discussion

      Really hoping someone has ideas about multiple tenants with accounts in same forest as dirsync only supports one.

      @jenross:FIM with third party extensions, it is not in the default toolbox I am afraid, I was really  surprised MS doesn't provide a FIM MA for O365.

      It would be nice if they have made something to replace dirsync or at least improved it. We have forced to create a new AD which is updated by FIM in order to get dirsync working.

      Please provide the mentioned whitepaper regarding placing ADFS servers in Azure.
