Provisioning groups in Azure Active Directory (Office365) has never been easier than with Web Active Directory’s PeoplePlatform. Provision groups via configurable web forms that you can use yourself or delegate to others or in bulk from your data sources.
Using Web Forms for Provisioning Groups into Azure Active Directory
Configuring web forms for provisioning groups into Azure Active Directory is useful in saving your team time. Your team can use these forms themselves or delegate to others with role-based security. All fields on the form are completely configurable. PeoplePlatform includes sample forms that can be duplicated and configured to your liking.
Relatively simple forms with dropdowns, validation, and input masks upon submission can expand into many more attributes in Azure Active Directory and affect many results in the provisioning process. For example, if an end-user selects a location on a group provisioning form that might affect the group’s initial set of members.
PeoplePlatform allows you to configure business rules and output mappings to make this happen.
Bulk Provisioning Groups into Azure Active Directory
Bulk provisioning groups into 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 inputs come from your data source and how that data is transformed into group data. 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.
Provisioning Groups isn’t Always About Creating Them
Whether provisioning groups with single entries or in bulk, it’s not always about creating new records. Bulk processes especially must handle duplicates. Define what constitutes a duplicate and how it’s handled by PeoplePlatform. Options include updating the group (beneficial for bulk processes), ignoring duplicates, or always creating a unique group. You can take control of your processes.
