Create and manage group accounts in Azure Active Directory.
- [Instructor] Since the early days…of directory structures and authentication services,…the concept of groups has been a primary aspect…of managing users and managing resources…within that directory structure.…To be able to provide access and permissions…to a large number of users or devices…by using a single entity called a group is…a great way of simplifying the management…and the access to resources within your organization.…
But when we're talking about Azure AD,…we can create Azure AD groups that can contain users…or other groups or devices and then we can use…those groups to do a number of things…within our Azure Active Directory infrastructure.…So let's take a look at how we create groups.…So here I'm in my litware directory…and I'm going to go under Users and Groups,…and then click on All Groups.…Now you'll notice that I already created…a group called Finance and that that group has…a membership type named Assigned.…

David shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multi-factor authentication. (Industry standard protocols such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID Connect make sign-on possible on a variety of platforms.) To wrap up the course, David reviews the more advanced features in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect, including syncing on-premises Active Directory and Azure AD, and troubleshooting an Azure AD deployment.
