Create Office 365 users from existing LDAP directory

Hi,
We would like to integrate Office 365 with our existing LDAP directory. Expected scenario as below:
1. Provision user account from LDAP directory to Office 365 (Azure AD)
2. Integrate Office 365 authentication with existing LDAP directory password.

Can we do the above scenario with any Okta solution? what will be the cost?
Thanks!

Hi Boon,

Below I have attached your questions with an answer for each.

1. Provision user account from LDAP directory to Office 365 (Azure AD)
This can be achieved by a using a feature that we ofer for Office365 called Licenses/Roles Management Only.
The only attributes available with this type of provisioning are licenses and roles. If you select this provisioning type, the only Provisioning Features that are available are Update User Attributes and Deactivate Users.
This feature is Generally Available (GA) for all users.
The requirement is for you to have Microsoft AD and DirSync/AAConnect.Which you do.
The provision flow should follow: 1. Import from AD, 2. Assign the user to Office 365.

2.Integrate Office 365 authentication with existing LDAP directory password.
This can be achieve by enabling the "Sync password" option under the provisioning tab for Office365, this option Creates a Microsoft Office 365 password for each assigned user and pushes it to Microsoft Office 365.

Also, I have attached two Kb's that will provide additional information about Office365.

In regards to the cost for this type of implementation, I would recommend opening a support case with Okta to get in touch with your sales representative

Hi Boon,

Yes you can integrate LDAP with okta and O365. If you're using Microsoft LDAP, please check out instructions on how to set it up at the link: https://www.proofid.co.uk/blog/set-okta-ldap-integration-microsoft-ad-lds/
