- How many in-scope HR users compared to AD users?
- What are the attributes to be synced between the HR system, Okta, and target applications?
- Is there HR data to determine birthright access?
- Is there HR data to distinguish in scope user communities (i.e., FTE vs. Contractor)?
- What is the current username format in HR?
- What are the user expected username formats for target applications?
How can SSO work with our active directory?
- Is the customer in a Hybrid Deployment?
- Does the customer meet Office 365 prerequisite set by Microsoft?
- Is the customer using Azure AD Connect to migrate users to O365?
- Is MFA in scope for access to O365?
Use AD and Azure AD as Single Source of Truth SSOT for your Okta instance.
For many Microsoft Office 365 customers, Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory is your core piece of the identity management infrastructure. With AD serving as the enterprise directory, user authentication and application access policies around on-premises applications are often tied to users and security groups in AD. Similarly, the ideal Microsoft Office 365 deployment should be able to tightly integrate with AD. Office 365 accounts should be created based on AD user-profiles and security groups. And users should be able to leverage their AD credentials when accessing Office 365.
When the user needs to change a password, it can all be done without a call into IT.
Everyone is happy!
