Add Office 365 tenant to my Azure AD Tenant RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have a Office 365 Tenant up and running and I just configured Azure AD. I would like to be able to have Dirsync establish between the two. I has in some documentation that I need to Add my Office 365 Microsoft ID user name @onmicrosoft.com to my Azure AD tenant. When I do this, in Azure, it tells me that my Microsoft ID does not exist. I'm at a lost as I'm able to login to my Office 365 with it.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Your Office 365 tenant have actually created an "Azure AD" for you already. This means you don't have to create a new one for your Azure subscription, you can just simply add the existing "Office 365 Azure AD" to your Azure subscription and then manage that AAD from the Azure subscription portal. As of now, it is not possible to use AADSync/DirSync to keep two AzureAD's synchronized, and there are no real reason for that.

    See the following links for additional information regarding adding an existing Azure AD to an Azure subscription:

  • Hi there this response needs an update, the process described in the links are no updated, last update I have seen is on the link as follows:

    https://github.com/uglide/azure-content/blob/master/articles/billing-add-office-365-tenant-to-azure-subscription.md

    The process is using the old management.windowscloud.com portal, but in the new portal.azure.com the option for Active Directory-Create-Custom is not there. Is there any other way to do this association?
