Office 365

Hi,

I am currently trialling Office 365 with Okta and have my trial account setup.

If I am using Hybrid Exchange, do I still need any of the Microsoft tools (Azure AD Connect, ADFS etc)?

Also, if I want SSO for Outlook, does Okta support Modern Authentication for Outlook 2013/2016?

Thanks in advance

Hi Ian

If you're looking at an Exchange Hybid deployment we would suggest you make use of AADConnect, but Okta can perform the full fnctionality of the ADFS requirements for SSO.

And yes Okta does support the Modern Authentication for Outlook 2013/2016?

Regards.

Thanks for the prompt response. What are the reasons for recommending AADConnect? Will this functionality be available in a future release?

You can use AADConnect to provision and deprovision users.  Okta can help manage licenses in hybrid environments.  Okta can fully replace AADConnect in cloud only O365 implementations.
