Azure sync with office 365 online exchange RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody, Me and my team are about to launch our CRM to the cloud and want to make it so that users can use their local computer passwords to sign in to it, but also to make it that they can do the same for their office 365 accounts. However they already have separate accounts for office made so when they sign in they use a different password. In AD users and computers they have an email set in the email box, if we sync their passwords over will they just link to their current accounts or will it create duplicates of the accounts without the current mailboxes. We need their mailboxes to sync with their passwords to make it easier. I'm asking for help because I have more experience with Server and not Azure, Thank you!!

  • Depends on the details I suppose. Assuming they have a single account in O365 and you haven't already synced the AD accounts, you can take advantage of the so-called soft-match mechanism as detailed here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2641663

    The mail attribute should do, but you might want to configure the primarySMTPAddress just in case.
