Join David Elfassy for an in-depth discussion in this video Join client computers to Azure AD, part of Learn Microsoft Azure: Active Directory.
- [Voiceover] Now we have users, groups,…but we also have computers that can be joined…to an Azure Active Directory domain.…Once a device is joined to an AD domain,…that device becomes managed by Azure Active Directory.…Any policies that you defined within your Azure AD…can be applied to the device…and the user that logs on to the device…can log on to multiple devices…and have his environment or his profile follow him along…through the new Enterprise Profile Roaming of Azure AD.…
Now in order to allow your devices to join as your AD,…it must be allowed within your directory.…Now by default it is, and I'll just show you…where those configurations are applied…is under Devices in the Configure tab of my directory.…Now these are the default settings,…so by default users may join devices to Azure AD,…which, by the way, is the exact same default configuration…of Active Directory On Premises.…Now I have some additional settings here,…such as requiring multifactor authentication…and the maximum number of devices that a user can set,…
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.
