Bob Tabor | http://www.LearnVisualStudio.NET
What is Azure Active Directory?
“Directory service in the cloud”
Directory services keep track of an organization’s users and an organization’s resources
Authenticating and authorizing users to access resources
Azure Active Directory provides authentication and authorization to services that also sit outside of an organization’s network
Directories and Users
Directories as like “security badges” to access certain “floors” of your company’s office
Why add users to a directory?
To give them Directory Administrator roles
To provide Single Sign-On to 3rd party services
To provide Single Sign-On to custom home-grown software
See: Microsoft Azure Active Directory Access Control Service
Directories and Subscriptions
A Subscription trusts only one Directory
One Directory can be trusted by many Subscriptions
Each department could create their own Directory, or they could rely on a primary Directory shared by all Subscriptions
Deleting a Subscription will not delete a Directory
Deleting a subscription: http://bit.do/delete-directory
Each Subscription trusts a single Azure Active Directory
A single Directory can be trusted by multiple Subscriptions
Directories contain users, their roles and permissions
Directories allow users to employ Single-Sign On (SSO)
Developers can integrate SSO
