Managing Office 365 Components for a large enterprise using Active Directory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Opening Office 365 to a large enterprise (7000 users) implies some controls be placed around who can subscribe to what and which Add-Ons a user might have/need/desire access to.

    To place these controls around, for example, licensing Project Online to individual users, we are proposing creation of Active Directory groups for each add-on and use powershell or other method to read the AD FS user groups, then flip the bit on the O365 user profile for that member to allow them to select the Add-On.

    At any point in time, our Asset Management team can use the AD group to determine licensing distribution and chargeback to internal cost centers.

    Does this seem like a viable approach?

    Any other approaches that have worked?
