Provisioning users in Active Directory and Office 365 separately results in unnecessary confusion, repetition, and delays. Besides users provisioning, Office 365 license management - revoking from inactive users, assigning to unlicensed users, etc. is also a key activity for administrators. To perform all these tasks efficiently and effortlessly, Microsoft's native tools and PowerShell scripts offer little help. Hence, managing users, be it in the on-premises AD or the cloud-based Office 365, warrants a systematic and streamlined approach.
ManageEngine ADManager Plus is web-based Active Directory management software that also helps in the management of Office 365 accounts. It offers predefined features which allow administrators to perform the desired management and reporting tasks in Office 365, besides Active Directory, Exchange Server, and G Suite, through completely UI-based and script-free actions.
ADManager Plus enables you to create new accounts for users, in Active Directory as well as Office 365 (based on Azure Active Directory) simultaneously, from a single web-based console; it uses the same set of credentials to provision new user accounts in AD and Office 365. Instead of struggling with multiple consoles or PowerShell scripts, all you need is few clicks to achieve the same result.
You can also provision Office 365 accounts for the users already present in your Active Directory. Simply specify the desired AD users via CSV import or multiple selection, and their Office 365 accounts are created in a jiffy. As a bonus, you can now provision users in Office 365 alone. Simply select the Office 365 option alone while creating users for standalone Office 365 provisioning.
Further, to facilitate efficient and quick management of Office 365 user accounts and licenses, this tool offers vital information about Office 365 environment, such as licensed/unlicensed users, inactive users, license details, group members, etc. through its predefined reports. ADManager Plus also lets you create shared mailboxes in your Office 365 environment.
By managing the users and licenses effectively, administrators can not only keep their Office 365 environment updated, they can also control/avoid unnecessary expenditure towards licenses.
ADManager Plus gives administrators the flexibility to manage users in a number of ways, to suit their specific needs, such as:
Windows Azure Active Directory Sync Tool (DirSync) runs on a Windows Server in your network, and synchronizes the information of users in your local AD with details of their corresponding user accounts in the cloud-based Office 365. Using ADManager Plus, you can specify whether the user accounts created in Office 365 have to be synchronized with the on-premises AD environment (DirSync enabled) or not (DirSync disabled) depending on your organizational policies. If DirSync is already installed, all changes will be synced irrespective of the option you choose.
