Join David Elfassy for an in-depth discussion in this video of what you should know before taking this course.
- Before you start this course, I do recommend that you have some basic understanding of key concepts that will help you understand Azure AD. Specifically, having some experience with Windows server and Windows server concepts, which is initially the cornerstone of the active directory and the active directory was built on, will help you understand the Azure version of active directory. Additionally, having some understanding of networking concepts and networking components, such as name resolution, will certainly help you understand how you access and communicate with Azure active directory.
So get familiar with those concepts and that will help you along the way as you learn Azure active directory.
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.
