D365 on-prem with Azure AD - looking for some insight

  • 1.  D365 on-prem with Azure AD - looking for some insight

    Posted Aug 20, 2019 07:59 AM
    Hi all,

    We currently have D365 on-prem and our company is changing over to Azure AD and I'm looking for some insight from anyone who has a similar setup.  This will be without ADFS on-prem.  We've heard from a couple folks this will be a disaster so hopefully someone out there has some better news!

    Let me know if any additional information is needed...I'm new to this role so bear with me!

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Jason,

    We currently run CRM 8.2 on-prem and are moving to D365 9.1 on-prem in a few months.  We also have been running hybrid AD (both local and in Azure) for several years.  I'm not sure why others are saying that would be a disaster.  I would love to hear details on that opinion in hopes that I might learn something new about this configuration moving forward.

    With that said, the only affect it has had on me as a developer is that I designed our Employee Intake on CRM 2016 while we were still completely on-prem with our AD.  When our engineers changed that (without informing me) all my customizations to automatically create AD users broke.  I am currently rewriting that intake system and hope to restore complete automation to the process.

    I know that may not help much, but just my perspective.  I'm also interested in following the thread to find out more.

    Sincerely,
    Glen Wolinsky
