Prerequisite to register Office 365 connector application in Azure AD

Jump to solution

Hi,
I should install Office 365 Smart Connector.
I don't work with Azure, Office 365.. .For me it's a new world!!.

Reading from the configuration Guide of the Office 365 Smart Connector (and from the Microsoft link included), it seems I need (I'm get confused):

1) Create Office 365 Account
2) Create Azure Subscription to manage Azure AD Tenant Domain
3) Associate Office 365 subscription with an Azure AD Tenant Domain

After these steps, I can register the connector application on the Azure AD tenant.

Is it right? Do you have some screenshot of these steps? A step by step instruction?

Can someone explain the right way to do it ?

Thanks in advance.

LG

Hi,
yes, I finished the installation and is working.
The problem was related to the permission.

Hi Kresimir,
thanks for your reply.
I already read the guide.
But I'm a little confused about Office 365 Account, Azure Subscription and Azure AD Tenant Domain. As I wrote, I never worked with the Azure world.
Which are the difference between Office 365 Account and Azure Subscription?
I would like to understand these steps  ...without to became an Azure administrator.
Again thank you.

Regards,

Luca

Hi Kresimir,
another question (thank you for your kind assistance).
Do I need to access on internet from my connector appliance to start working Office 365 smart connector?

Hi Luca,

Thank you for your replies.

In order to install the connector, you will have to follow the steps from the guide and configure the connector.
What's the difference between the account and subscription can probably be found on Microsoft site:

http://www.brucebnews.com/2013/04/the-difference-between-a-microsoft-account-and-an-office-365-account/

In order to make the connector work, you would need to have an Office 365 account already enabled and configured and its subscription must be associated with an Azure AD Tenant Domain Account.

Regarding your last question, yes, you would need access to the Internet from your connector.

Hi,
thank's for the info. Very usefull.
I have tried to install Office 365 smart connector on a computer and subscribe a free Office 365 account to test it.
on Azure side, I did:

1) Register Smart-Connector Application in Azure AD
2) Generate the Secret Key
3) Specify the permissions the Connector Application to access Office 365

but I have an error message when installing the smart connector. Please see the link
