Azure Active Directory (Office 365) group deprovisioning has never been easier than with Web Active Directory’s PeoplePlatform. Deprovision groups via configurable web forms that you can use yourself or delegate to others or in bulk from your data sources.
Everybody’s deprovisioning process differs slightly. PeoplePlatform allows you to configure business rules to enable you to do what you need. When deprovisioning groups, for example, most opt to disable them so that they can be revived later (retaining their membership). You can, however, take more radical action like delete them. Configure different rules for different situations or stick with the defaults.
Using Web Forms for Deprovisioning Groups in Azure Active Directory
Configuring web forms for deprovisioning groups in Azure Active Directory is useful by saving your team time. Your team can use these forms themselves or delegate to others with role-based security. All fields on the forms are completely configurable. PeoplePlatform includes samples to duplicate and configure to your liking.
You can configure query screens to control how your users find groups for deprovisoning. You can limit the scope of what’s searchable by your end-users role in your organization. At that point, the end-user can choose one or more groups to deprovision at the same time.
Azure Active Directory Bulk Group Deprovisioning
Bulk deprovisioning groups from Azure Active Directory is useful for ensuring your directory is always up to date with other systems– especially systems of record. You can define how deprovisioning inputs come from your data source and how these are used to match groups to be deprovisioned. Schedule bulk jobs to occur with whatever frequency you want. Be notified as much or as little as you’d like including robust exception notifications.
Reviving Deprovisioned Groups in Azure Active Directory
With PeoplePlatform, reviving groups is easy either through a web interface or automatically from bulk processes. This brings them back after a past deprovisioning.
