DFW SharePoint User Group: Hybrid Identity Management in SharePoint and Office 365

Thank you to everyone that came out to the Dallas Fort Worth SharePoint User Group meeting last week on Tuesday August 18th.  We had a great crowd and I hope everyone enjoyed my presentation on Hybrid Identity Management in SharePoint and Office 365.

The presentation deck can be found here on slide share here:

As mentioned during the presentation, my slide deck does include an Appendix with screenshots of everything I went through.

Demo: User PowersShell to Active Office 365 Users

For those that attended, there was one glitch with my demo when trying to use PowerShell to apply a license to a newly synchronized user in my Office 365 tenant.  The issue with that I was trying to do was that I accidentally typed the PowerShell command Set-MsolUser rather than Set-MsolUserLicense.  This had been correct in the slide deck, and I just mistyped the command.  In any case, the full correct PowerShell command is:

Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName " <user’s upn> " -AddLicenses “<your license SKU“

Customizing the User Sign In Page

There was also another correction made in the slide deck: in the table on slide 9 which describes various requirements along with which are supported with Synchronized Identity vs Federated Identity, it previously mentioned that customizing the sign in page was only available with the Federated Identity model.  Earlier this year however Microsoft released the capability to customize the sign in page in Office 365, so this will now work with both Synchronized Identity and Federated Identity models. This capability is only available with the Azure AD Basic or Premium editions, and not the free edition.  So you must pay for Azure AD in order to make this customization.  This fact was pointed out to me by Chris Goosen (Office 365 MVP who attended the meeting) - Thanks Chris!  He's even written a great blog post about how to go about customizing it here:

Please reach out to me if you have any other questions on this topic.
