Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a cloud-based platform from Microsoft, used to assist employees in accessing both internal and external services. Services such as Microsoft 365 or internal cloud applications developed within an organization.

Administrative Units in AzureAD are resources or containers for other Azure AD resources, such as Microsoft users or groups, and are used for staff management and providing recourse permissions.

A limitation of this solution is that you have to manually alter your Administrative Units and these are only accessible via the Azure Portal. Is there another way to manage your organization’s administrative Units externally instead? With staff lists ready at hand, how can you import them to your Administrative Unit directly from your own applications?

Bosbec has developed a solution where you can add and/or remove users from an Administrative Unit, either by API-requests to the Bosbec platform or just as easily with an email containing a CSV file.

Using the Bosbec solution, you could manage your Administrative Unit without manually having to access the Azure Portal. Use this instruction manual to set up your Azure AD account for external management.
