  • Forum Reply: RE: Will Dirsync update O365 Azure AD to log out a user provided the Federated user`s password changed?

    Hi Dematri, Thanks for the update. Based on my research, in the purely-cloud based environment, the SharePoint Online session timeout time is 8 hours. However, for the ADFS/SSO based environment, no official article has clarified this time very clearly. If there is any official document in the feature...

    Hi Martin, Based on the current information we have, we are not able to confirm whether the DirSync sync failure causes the migration error or not. To help us narrow down these two issues, in this situation we'd like to focus on the DirSync sync failure first and troubleshoot it. If you can run...

    Hi Pauil, From the description, the answer is depended on whether these school ADs are in the same forest. If yes, the DirSync tool can synchronize users in these ADs to Office 365 directly. If no, AADSync can be used to synchronize multiple forests to Office 365. However, some features are not supported...

    The whole point behind DirSync, I thought, was to allow easy management of users in Office365 tenants.
