Your Top 5 Azure or O365 tasks



  • I'm doing a project and it would really help to know:

    What are the top 5 things you find yourself most frequently doing in Azure and/or O365, or other MS Cloud services? Could be anything from uploading a file to OneDrive, to creating an O365 user, to installing an app on an Intune managed device.

    I use powershell with Office 365 in concert with on-prem AD and Okta for SSO and provisioning and syncing AD info.

    Not directly connecting to Office 365 via powershell- For on-boarding, I script creation of the AD user and group membership with powershell. Okta pulls it into their service, and based on membership, it will provision the user with the appropriate Office 365 license.

    For off-boarding, I script disabling local ad account and password change and removing the user from all groups. It then connects to Office 365 and resets that password, changes the mailbox to a shared mailbox. After which, Okta sets the Office 365 to user to block sign in to the account.

    The password script doesn't quite work correctly. I wanted it to grab the password that I set for the local AD and use it in Office 365, but it just creates its own- as if you went into the web ui and reset it there, allowing it to generate the password for you. It isn't big deal, as it won't be used. I would just like it to work correctly lol



  • I'd also like to work in some prompts for which groups to add or even better, a GUI with check boxes and some logic based on job role and/or department. Though, for that, I would need concrete job roles and departments from management. Something that isn't really adhered to, here. Boggles my mind.



  • Number One Task for Us: Creating a New User, Assigning a License, Adding to Groups



  • Number Two Task: Deleted Said User



  • Mine is likely consuming Audit Log data to monitor logins and other activity. Haven't gotten this as automated yet as I'd like.
