More likely than not, if you are thinking about bringing a customer to Azure Desktop Hosting, this customer is already using Office365 (Exchange online, OneDrive, Skype for Business, etc) or you are going to offer the services as a bundle: Office365 + Azure Desktops.
In either case, you want Users and Passwords to be the same among the virtual desktops and Office365 apps. This is accomplished by implementing Azure AD Connect.
MyCloudIT takes care of this integration for you. At the moment of the network creation, or after the network is created, you have the option to DirSync an Office365 domain with the Domain Controller/AD of you Azure Desktop hosting Deployment. Our engine will bring the cloud users down to the AD, upload any user that doesn’t exist in O365, install the Azure AD connect client, and sync the users information.
You have 3 options for the integration:
- Azure AD Connect
- Azure AD Connect With Password Sync
- Azure AD Connect With Single Sign On (using ADFS)
