Office 365 driver - any experience?


Hi,

we're in the process of implementing office 365. There is has been
suggested two alternativs for provisioning:

1. Combination of MS DirSync and scritping driver
2. Office 365 driver (and maybe scripting driver)

We need to sync user, distribution list memberships, group membership
(maybe) and contacts. For the user we need to set location and licens.

Does anyone have any experience with this and want to share?

Is the Office 365 driver working fine?

We will also use access manager for SSO.

Thanks.

I have been dissecting the policies in the driver config (admittedly in
an older config version, since I had to draw a line in the sand and
start somewhere, since I have been spending a lot of time on it).

(Submitted part 6-11, half way through 12, so this may be more detail
than you care about, but useful when you have an issue).


License is quite flexible and powerful in the driver. You can use a
Resource/Entitlement to grant licenses, which allows you to abstract the
specific license to any single user through Roles.

That means you can manage teh specific license at whatever level of
granularity you need.

It is worth testing, since it seems much more flexible than simple
DirSync. One thing to consider is the specific ImmutableId you send to O365.

This is the unique identifier there. I would suggest sending UPN rather
than ObjectGUID in AD, since then you can sync from an IDV to O365
instead of AD to O365. Also makes SSO easier.
