How to merge Azure Active Directory/Azure Instance with Office 365 AAD RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently have been working on getting our Office 365 Instance up and running.  We have successfully activated some of the services, and got DirSync/ADFS properly syncing to our onsite Active Directory.

    However, separate from this installation, we have an existing Azure Instance that we have been using for over a year now.  It contains various servers and data.  

    When attempting to get Azure Active Directory working on the Azure side of things, I found that it seems to be a completely separate instance of AAD.  However, if I try to log in to the Azure Portal with my usernames/passwords from the Office 365 side it works, but they are unassociated with our existing Azure subscription.  (I receive a message saying that there is no subscription  associated with the account)

    Long story short, my question is how can I merge my Office 365 Instance of AAD with my Azure instance of AAD without impacting what we already have running on Office 365 and/or Azure?

    Logon to the Windows Azure Portal https://manage.windowsazure.com.
    Click on Application Services | Active Directory | Directory | Custom Create.
    Change the Directory dropdown from the default Create new directory to Use existing directory and click the Check box.
    Next you are logged out of the Windows Azure administrative account and you are redirected to the Windows Azure Active Directory logon.

    Logon with a Global Administrator account from the Office 365 tenant that you would like to integrate.

    After sign in you are prompted to add the Windows Azure administrator account as a global administrator for the Office 365 Tenant directory, click on Continue.
    Logout of the Office 365 global administrator account and then logon to https://manage.windowsazure.com with your global administrator account.

  • Hi

    This works for Azure Classic Portal, but not in current Azure Portal. How to do it with Azure Portal? I cannot see the option "custom create"

  • @Konrad Puchala,

    Can you able to do this in Azure Portal? I am also not able to get the option to create custom directory. Please suggest the process to proceed.
