Office 365 Cloud Connector
User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) simplifies the connection between cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 and Active Directory. UMRA offers the ability to retrieve information from Microsoft Office 365 and to update it back to Active Directory. Based on information from the Active Directory, a personnel system (SAP, PeopleSoft, ADP etc.), or a request from a manager (Web-based workflow/self-service), UMRA can automatically create, change or remove user accounts, e-mailboxes, groups and roles in Office 365 and also reset passwords, rename users and license users for specific components of the package. It's also possible to synchronize a password change carried out in Active Directory for the correct user account within Office 365.
