Azure Active Directory | Azure Active Directory Tutorial | Azure Tutorial For Beginners |Simplilearn

hi guys this is Rob from simply learned and today we are going to talk about the service as your Active Directory so firstly let’s ask the most important question what is as your Active Directory now here we are in a situation where we have two colleagues having a conversation with each other so one of them complains that he is finding a hard time managing multiple user logins at the same time his friend suggests that he has a solution that the company start using Azure Active Directory he says that with does your ad they’ll be able to handle multiple user logins without any issue so just like the question and all our minds the friend asks how is Azure Active Directory going to help us so to help you understand let’s think about a scenario you are an employee working for an organization and you want to use a particular service in this case SQL database so you’re assigned a set of username and password then you want to use another service a machine-learning service again you’re assigned a different username and password and likewise for any number of services that you want to use so for every service that you’re going to choose you need to be assigned a new username and password but this becomes a huge issue for the administrator as they have to handle a large number of username and passwords now if you think about a large organization where there’s more than 1,000 people working you can understand how much of a hassle it’s going to be for the administrator at the same time it’s also a really difficult thing for you to remember that many numbers of username and passwords it’s difficult on the user as well and that’s where as your Active Directory helps now here’s a scenario where we are applying as your Active Directory now you are an employee you want to use a particular service and you’re assigned a single username and password and this username and password you can access all the services that you want so there’s only one set of username and passwords that you need to remember you can use any of the services that you want as long as the administrator has given you access to it so what is Azure Active Directory now as your Active Directory is a service that falls under the identity domain it allows multiple users and is a cloud-based directory and identity management service now here’s an ideal scenario you’re joining an office newly the admin helps you sign up to whatever services you want and you can access this anywhere over the cloud so now let’s talk about something different Windows ad and Azure ad now windows ad was the previous version of azure ad so now we’ll talk about why we needed to change through Windows Active Directory to us your Active Directory so what is Windows Active Directory now it’s an OS directory service which allows you to work with multiple systems multiple network resources in a unified manner now the biggest draw when it came to Windows ad was that it had many layers now different layers that did different bits of work so now let’s talk about each of these layers the first layer is a DDS or the Windows Active Directory domain services now each layer as I said before as a different role to perform a DDS allows admin to manage information relating to user logins and other details like when they signed up how much they’re using and things like that the next layer is adls of the azure data leak storage services this layer is for allowing you to store any amounts of data of any type or size then you have the ad FS or the Active Directory Federation services where you’re given a single option for sign up with which you get access to all systems and applications then we have the fourth layer the ADCs or the Active Directory and certification services this enables administrators to customize services and then be able to manage and issue public certificates and the final layer is a DRM S or the Active Directory rights management service and this is used for data protection now here’s where as your Active Directory changed the whole game this means that there’s a large number of layers that administrators need to take care of now how about there was a solution for this and as your ad is that solution as your Active Directory integrates all these five layers into two and these are the Windows Azure Active Directory or the WEA D where it combines all the problems when it comes to identification management which is almost all five layers taken into one and the Windows Azure access control service enables the Federation or the division of all these services of an organization and by division I mean assigning each of these services to these users so that is taken care of by the windows as your access control service hence as your art auditory is able to simplify a lot of the problems that Windows Azure Active Directory had for example the application office 365 uses as your Active Directory to manage user identities here’s how now you’re an employee who wants to access one of the office 365 services which could be Excel PowerPoint Microsoft Word or something like that so you go talk to the administrator and he gives you access to these services with the help of a single username and

password now as long as you have this username and password and the administrator has given you access to it you can use any of these services so host the service audience who is using the Active Directory service now there are three types of audience when it comes to Azure Active Directory the first one is ID administrator the second one application developers and online customers so the IT administrators their main emphasis is to ensure that the sign-in takes place they take care of all the sign-in procedures they also solve issues when it comes to authentication for example to authenticate a particular user the problem is solved by the IT administrators then your application developers who use these services to develop applications and with this they have an easier time developing applications as all these resources are easily available you have online customers who make use of services like office 365 and other CRM services and have all their demands catered immediately so now let’s have a look at how we can use Azure Active Directory to provide access to a particular individual so if you log into the Azure account this is what you see or you go into Active Directory a list of all the people who are using or have been given permission to use resources from Azure ok now we’re going to create a profile we need to set up his name which is John and second named Jacob now for properties we need to determine the source of authority which is already Active Directory so that’s fine we can select a group or add them to a particular group if we feel like it now if we add them to a particular group it means that they have access to all the resources that everyone in the group has access to earlier so we’ll do that later we’ll select their directory role or we can select it here if you need to could be user administrator or limited administrator and now we will set up a password so you already got one and we’ll create and that’s it we have created a user now we go to their profile so what we can see here is that you have access to every bit of detail related to this account so you have the name your first name the user name the object ID job info everything you can even have other details like how often they’ve signed in when did they sign up you can check their password you can reset the password delete their account and so much more now we can even add a directory role which we saw earlier and now let’s add this person to the admin group so you know he gets access to all the services those people have access to in select that’s it we’ve added them now the other things that you can see here there are applications licenses devices these are all restrictions you can add or remove like which device you can use the system through or with and stuff like that so that’s it and with that we’ve created a user and given him access to certain services and with that we’ve reached the end of another video I hope you guys found this informative and helpful thank you for watching and stay tuned for more from simply hi there if you like this video subscribe to the simple learn YouTube channel and click here to watch similar videos de nerd up and get certified click here
