Azure Active Directory (AD) is Microsoft's cloud-based identity store that can seamlessly integrate with either on-premises directories and/or cloud SaaS apps. This course will teach you the basics of using Azure AD in a variety of scenarios.
This course covers all relevant skills covered in the Azure Active Directory (AD) objective domain in Microsoft Exam 70-533. Not only that, you'll learn how to integrate your on-premises Active Directory domain with the Azure cloud. You'll also discover how to "wire up" Azure AD with homegrown or third-party SaaS apps to support single sign-on (SSO).
Configure Access and Federation Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Configure Access and Federation. We at Pluralsight sequence courses together that cover every objective from a particular certification exam. For Microsoft Exam 70-533, we have a course called Prepare to Pass that lays the groundwork for the content each objective domain are courses entitled Web Apps, Virtual Machines, Cloud Services, Storage, Azure Active Directory, that's what we're doing now, and Implement Virtual Networks. If you go to Microsoft Learning's website and compare the 533 objective domains to our learning path, you'll find that they map up exactly. Let's take a look at the table of contents for our implement an Azure Active Directory course. The first module is called Integrate Azure AD with Existing Directories. What we're doing today is a lesson called Configure Access and Federation. Then we have a module on the application access panel and then ultimately integrate an app with Azure AD. We have three exam objectives to cover in this module. The first, I want to teach you how to add a custom DNS domain to your Active Directory. This is really important for corporate branding purposes and also supports a more seamless sign-in experience for your users regardless of whether you're doing directory synchronization alone with password sync or if you're doing full-fledged AD FS Federation. I'm also going to give you a brief overview of configuring access to Azure Active Directory. We'll be spending much more time with access permissions in the last two modules of this course. And then I also what to give you important coverage on monitoring Azure Active Directory. Let's get started.
Configure the Application Access Panel Hi there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Configure the Application Access Panel. You've probably seen this slide several times if you've been following our learning path for Microsoft Exam 70-533. The first course in that series is a general introduction called Prepare to Pass and then we get into the objective domain specifically starting with web apps, then getting into virtual machines, cloud services, storage. What we're doing now is Azure Active Directory and then we finish with virtual networks. So the idea here is you get a really nice end-to-end skillset for the IT Ops professional with Microsoft Azure. This implement an Azure AD course consists of just four modules. The first is called integrate an Azure AD with existing directories. Second, we configured access and federation. Today, we're doing the application access panel and SaaS app integration. And then finally, the fourth module is called Integrate an App with Azure AD. Let's have a quick look at what you'll be learning in this module and at the same time, we'll be reviewing the relevant exam objectives on Microsoft Learning's blueprint. We're going to learn how to deploy software as a service, SaaS, applications using both the password-based authentication and federated identity single sign-on approaches. We'll also, and this is where the module gets its name, learn what the application access panel is and how to configure it for our users. We'll manage SaaS applications. That involves tasks like adding users and groups to grant them access to an Azure connected SaaS app and also access revocation. Let's get started.
Integrate an App with Azure AD Hi there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Integrate an App with Azure AD. Let's take a very brief look as we always do at our Pluralsight learning path for Microsoft exam 70-533. I put together a short introductory course and then other courses all correspond to Objective Domains affectionately called ODs. From the Exam 70-533 blueprint, we have a course on web apps, then virtual machines, then cloud services, then storage. We're involved with Azure Active Directory today and we finish up with virtual networks. In the implement an Azure AD course we have four modules. The first dealt with initial Azure AD integration with existing directories, then we looked at access and federation, the application access panel, and today, this is actually the fourth and final module in the course, Integrate an App with Azure AD. What are we going to learn over the course of this module? Well we're pulling our objectives directly from Microsoft learning as we always do and the first exam objective is to configure web app authentication to Azure AD using WS-Federation. Next, configure desktop app authentication using OAuth. If you're thinking to yourself, Tim these sound like very developerish topics, my answer to you is very good, young Padawan, you are correct. This is a very programmery subject, but I'm going to make sure that it's framed in a way that's easily digestible by us IT Ops folks. Two more objectives we have to understand what the Graph API is. That's actually a very fascinating subject that I think you'll enjoy and we'll finish with a brief review of how to integrate third-party services like Google ID identity and Facebook identities with Azure AD. Let's get to work.
