Active directory sharepoint user validating
In Share Point, Office 365 and Azure AD, the OAuth 2.0 protocol is used for Authentication.Think of OAuth 2.0 as defining a set of grammar or a vocabulary for authentication.
This blog will be a 3-part blog series broken down into the following sections: Let's dive into the business scenario I was recently faced with and how we used UPS to address the challenge.This differs from the original Share Point App Model where the trust was with Azure Access Control Service (ACS).That model also uses access tokens in the same way so all the concepts map over just fine.With the snap-in enabled, add it to the console root and select OK.Once you have the console open, you'll see two folders: one for Classes and one for Attributes. To be clear this isn’t really about Office 365 or the Office 365 APIs, but they rely on Azure AD for authentication.
With that being said, I find the authentication dance to be the hardest part of working with the Office 365 APIs hence why I’m covering it in a few posts here.
You're deploying a Share Point extranet for the Contoso organization to share, collaborate, and collect information from their vendors and partners.
The farm is deployed in Contoso's perimeter network and by design has been completely partitioned from their internal network. You've been asked to support a credentialing process and managing the life cycle around the identities you're provisioning.
However, this method can be tweaked (using joeelway.com) when the company has used a domain that cannot be verified, e.g. Log into the Azure management portal, browse to Active Directory, click on your Default Directory, and navigate to Domains. Click Add and then navigate to the next page where you will be provided with details for validating your domain.
You are told to create a TXT record in your domain (joeelway.com) on the Internet DNS servers.
Active Directory enables centralized, secure management of an entire network and promises to support a single unified view of all objects (such as user accounts, groups, computers and sites) on a network and locating and managing resources faster and easier.
