Add User Account (Cloud Users – Office 365 Federated)


In this setup, adding users in Practice Protect is synchronized with Office 365. This includes the management of the following:

  • Adding user in Office 365
  • Assigning of Microsoft licenses
  • Registry of user attributes
  • Managing user credentials
  • Others



In this procedure, you will be able to add a user account in Practice Protect federated with Office 365.

  1. Create an In Cloud Only user. Please refer to this link in order to create a user.
  2. Once the user is created, under Core Services, go to Roles.

  3.  In the Roles section, Microsoft Licenses are linked into a role. Search and select a role with a corresponding license.

    Click the role to see the properties.

  4. Inside the role, go to Members.

    Click Add, and a user list screen will appear.

    Search and select
    the user, click Add, then click Save.

    The user is now added to the role.

  5. Next step is synchronizing the user account to Office 365 manually.

    Under Settings go to Users.

    Go to Outbound Provisioning found under the Other section. In Provisioning Enabled Applications drop-down box, choose Office 365, then click on Start Sync.

  6. Check the sync status by clicking the link View Synchronization Job Status and Reports hyperlink.

    NOTE: Make sure that your organization have sufficient Microsoft License. If there is no available license, the user account will still be added in your Office 365 Admin Centre, but without a license assigned. You may purchase new licenses and assign it to the user directly in Office 365.

  7. Once the Synchronization is complete, you may now check if the user already appeared in Office 365 Admin Centre.

A new user is successfully added in Office 365.
