ADOneAgent-Commands-Actions-M365Licenses-icon M365 Licenses Assignment

Automatically assigns Microsoft 365 licenses based on a specific Active Directory attribute.


If the organization uses a Microsoft 365 tenant and Active Directory users are synchronized in Azure AD with tools such as Azure AD Connect you can use this action that allows Microsoft 365 licenses to be automatically assigned after users have been synchronized in the cloud.


Once the configuration is completed, activated and executed in the scheduler, licenses will be automatically assigned to all users who have a specific value in a specific attribute and are unlicensed.

Procedure description: is a descriptive text that appears in the main grid, the description is also used by the software as an identifier of the action and therefore no duplicates are allowed for this field.


Credentials... must contain a set of credentials that are used by the service to perform licensing in the Microsoft 365 tenant. Global Administrator or Company Administrator group privileges are required. It is recommended to create a service account, dedicated to this type of operation and not to use person accounts. See Manage Credentials for more information on creating and managing service accounts.


Scheduler waiting time... is the time that must elapse after the execution of the action has been completed, during the wait time no action is performed and the service communicates with the user interface only to show the remaining time with a countdown.
