Integrating AD FS 2.0 with Office 365

Integrating AD FS 2.0 with Office 365 Office 365 has the support for federated identity and can be configured with AD FS 2.0 to allow the SSO access for the Active Directory accounts. In this recipe, we will walk through the steps to configure AD FS 2.0 for Office 365. Getting ready Following are the prerequisites: The Microsoft Online Services Directory Synchronization tool, which can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5535Set up your desktop for Office 365 (learn more at http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/office365-enterprises/ff637594.aspx)Microsoft Online Services Module, which can be downloaded from http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/Office365-enterprises/ff652560.aspx#BKMK_DownloadTheMOSIdentityFederationToolValid Office 365 accountRun the Microsoft Office 365 Deployment Readiness Tool from http://community.office365.com/en-us/f/183/p/2285/8155.aspx#8155 to verify if your enterprise Active Directory is ready for SSO Note You must have UPN set up in your Active Directory. How to do it... To integrate AD FS 2.0 with Office 365, perform the following steps: To enable Identity Federation in the Office 365 portal, launch Identity Federation Management Tool and enter the following command: $cred=Get-Credential In the Windows PowerShell Credential Request dialog box, enter your Office 365 Administrator account user name and password in the User name and Password fields respectively and hit Enter. To log in to the online service, enter the following command: Set-MSOLContextcredential –msolAdminCredentials $cred To add a domain in the portal, enter the following command: Add-MSOLFederatedDomain –domainname adfsweb.domain.com To update To update a domain in the portal, enter the following command: Convert-MSOLDomainToFederated –domainname adfsweb.domain.com Update-MSOLFederatedDomain –domainname adfsweb.domain.com This will update and activate SSO and configure the federation server with the Microsoft Federation Gateway information. Set up a federation server proxy to broker the communication between Microsoft Online Services and the federation server. How it works... Once you have successfully enabled SSO in the Office 365 portal, you will notice that the password field gets disabled, the moment you enter your UPN in the portal login page. A link to log in to the federation server is activated. You have now successfully set up AD FS 2.0 for Office 365. There's more... You can use Directory Synchronization to synchronize the Active Directory user information with Office 365.
