Overview

This article provides information about how to enable Azure AD Integration and manage Microsoft 365 users in inSync.

Prerequisites

  • Only a Druva Cloud Administrator and inSync Cloud administrator can configure inSync to manage users using Azure AD Integration.

  • You must have a Microsoft 365 Global administrator account.

If you do not have Microsoft Global admin credentials, you can do either of the following:

  • Get them from your organization’s Microsoft 365 Global admin.

  • Send an email to Microsoft 365 Global administrator and request them to authorize and configure inSync to access Microsoft 365.

Send an email request to Microsoft 365 Global administrator

Perform the following steps:

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Users > Deployment.
  2. On the Deployment page, click Do not have Global Admin Credentials? link. The Azure AD Integration pop-up appears.
  3. In the Azure AD Integration pop-up,  enter the email address of the recipient and click Send Email. inSync will notify and send an email for your request.

Administrator must define the user import type in the inSync Management Console.

The workflow varies based on the following criteria:

  • Use case 1: inSync is not authorized and configured to access Microsoft 365. For more information on how to configure inSync for Microsoft 365, see Configure inSync for Microsoft 365.
  • Use case 2: inSync is authorized and configured to access Microsoft 365.

To configure and use Azure AD Integration  for managing users in the inSync Management Console, perform the following steps:

Use case 1: inSync is not authorized and configured to access Microsoft 365.

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Users > Deployment.

  2. On the Deployment page, click Use Azure AD. A pop-up to authorize Microsoft 365 tenant appears. Click Authorize Microsoft 365 to proceed with the authorization. You will be redirected to the Microsoft 365 configuration page.
  3. On the Microsoft 365 page, click Add Microsoft 365 Account and complete the configuration. For more information see Configure inSync for Microsoft 365..

After a successful configuration, inSync gets connected and has access to Microsoft 365 data of all users in your organization.

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Users > Deployment.

  2. On the Deployment page, click Use Azure AD to use Azure AD mappings to import and manage users. 
  3. On the confirmation dialog box that appears, read the message and click Confirm. You will be redirected to the Azure AD Mappings page. Now, you can Create Azure AD mapping to import users.
