Yesterday, Microsoft announced they released Azure AD Connect and Azure AD Connect Health to the public.
Azure AD Connect can be seen as the successor to DirSync/AADSync, with an added edge. It does not only allow you to configure directory synchronization, but the wizard also allows you to automatically setup and configure Active Directory Federation Services instead of having to go through the motions manually.
The GA of the tool has been long awaited and it’s great to finally see it become available for everyone. Make sure to check back in the weeks to come as I will more than likely be posting some articles on what’s new and how to deal with the tool.
