AZURE AD – EXTERNAL IDENTITIES (IV) Advanced flowS

AZURE AD – EXTERNAL IDENTITIES (II) Logic Apps

Active Directory is dead, long live Azure Active Directory

[this post is my personal view on Azure AD and AD – and does not contain technical instructions – happy to go into discussion on this topic – you know how to find me… ] Last few weeks, out of nostalgia I’ve been installing Windows Server 2000 on a Compaq Proliant with dual Pentium Pro […]

B2B USERS & INTERNAL APPS – MIM deployment

In many of my previous posts I talked about B2B users being replicated to your own AD for guest users to be able to login to your backend (Kerberos) applications. This adding of guest users to your AD can be done using my PowerShell script, the MIM guide from Microsoft – although it seems to […]
