- [Voiceover] Now it's time to get familiar…with some of the management tools…for Azure Active Directory.…If you logon to portal.azure.com…or azure.microsoft.com,…you will be brought into this page.…This is the new or the modern Microsoft Azure portal…or management interface.…Here we have a column on the left…which lists all of the recently accessed resources…or the resources that are also part of our subscription.…Most of the resources can be managed here.…
However, one of the resources that has most…of its management that is stored outside…of the new portal of Azure is Active Directory.…So Azure Active Directory is one of those services…that we will have to manage from the old portal…or the classic portal, as Microsoft likes to refer to it.…It's the Windows Azure.com portal…or manage.windowsazure.com.…Now, in order to access it from my existing…or new portal, I would click on browse…and then would find Active Directory.…
And from there I would open the classic portal.…If you want to access it directly,…you would just go to manage.windowsazure.com.…
Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) provides most of the rich functionalities of Active Directory, with the conveniences of cloud-based computing. Azure AD also offers developers a great way to integrate identity management into applications. In this Azure training course, David Elfassy introduces the terminology and feature set in Azure AD. He shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multifactor authentication. (Industry standard protocols such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID Connect makes sign-on possible on a variety of platforms.) In the final chapters of the course, David reviews the more advanced reporting and features in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect, including syncing on-premise Active Directory and Azure AD.
