Join David Elfassy for an in-depth discussion in this video Create an Azure AD directory, part of Learn Microsoft Azure: Active Directory.
- [Voiceover] If your organization hosts…directories for multiple companies,…or you have multiple entities that you're responsible for,…you may want to create multiple directories in Azure AD.…This will create a logical separation…between these directories…and allow you to manage them individually,…providing them different levels of permissions…and mechanisms for authentication.…So I'm going to go ahead and create a new directory here.…I'm going to click on New from…within my Active Directory Management Portal,…and I'm gonna say create a new directory.…
Create a custom create directory,…and I'm gonna give it a name.…Now, I'm gonna say…that this is my LyndaAD…and I'm gonna give it a domain name of LyndaAD.…Now note that by default, that LyndaAD domain…is within the onmicrosoft.com domain.…I'll be able to add additional domains later on,…so that my name is a more aligned with my organization.…Now I can also specify a region,…so I'm gonna say that this is in the United States,…and I need to, not United Kingdom, United States.…
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.
