ABOUT THE AZURE ACTIVE DIRECTORY AUTOMATION

With the Azure Active Directory (AAD) automation, you can import AAD members and teams into your organization automatically. Furthermore, you can define the organization role (collaborator or reader) the members will have once they're imported. 

This is an organization exclusive feature.

ADD THE AAD AUTOMATION

To add the AAD automation, you have to:

  1. Go to the automations area (automations.png) and select Enalyzer.
  2. Click on the add automation button and select Azure Active Directory.
  3. Log into your Microsoft account. You need to have admin rights to connect to Enalyzer.
  4. Enalyzer will request permission, accept to proceed.
  5. You'll be sent back to Enalyzer where you have to map the fields by linking the variables from Microsoft AAD on the right to the organization member variables on the left. If there is an AAD variable you don't want to map, select the skip option. Once you're done mapping, click next.
  6. Name your automation.
  7. Select the default organization role for imported members, i.e. the imported members will be given the selected role in your organization.
  8. If you want to import your AAD team structure into your organization, enable the team synchronization setting. This means in the event of any subteams in AAD, these will be added subteams in your organization.
  9. Finally, select the AAD teams you want to import to your organization by searching for them. When you're done, click next.
  10. You'll receive an overview of the number of members you're about to import. Click connect now* to finish setting up for your automation.
  11. You're done. The automation runs every 15 minutes, so it will continue to import new members from your AAD.

*You have to be an organization administrator to enable the automation. Collaborators can create but not enable them.

FAQs

IS THE ORGANIZATION ROLE CONTINUOUSLY SYNCHRONIZED?

No. Changing the default organization role in the automation will not change the role of the members that already have been imported, only those imported after the change. 

HOW DOES ENALYZER IMPORT THE AAD TEAM STRUCTURE?

AAD uses a graph structure, whereas Enalyzer uses a tree structure. A graph structure works like a network model, where team relationships can be circular. A tree structure works like a hierarchical structure, therefore, Enalyzer transforms the network model into a hierarchy of teams and subteams.
