Azure Active Directory is Microsoft's identity and access management system. It holds all the information about an organisation's people, and helps manage their access to Microsoft products and other cloud-base platforms like iHR.
The intelliHR integration with Azure AD is designed for businesses that want a simple, automated, headache-free process for managing their employee data base which is accurate and reliable. The integration will help simplify and improve the data entry and synchronisation process when creating users. This integration will automatically create and update employee records and work emails in Azure when added in intelliHR or vice versa.
This article covers:
What will it do?

There are a number of Microsoft products that have very similar names to Azure AD. This integration DOES NOT support these other products (Microsoft Azure, Microsoft AD etc).
The following table illustrates the fields that can be pushed between the Azure AD and intelliHR platforms.
