    Great news! You now have the capability to use our Active Directory Integration (ADI) with Azure Active Directory Domain Services! 

    You can sync your Azure Active Directory users and groups to your KnowBe4 console! See our ADI and Azure AD Domain Services article for more information.

    This does not address what the original poster requested. This new feature only helps in cases where customers are hosting AD Services in Azure and not on-prem. 

     

    The poster is requesting that you implement built-in support for Azure provisioning and SSO as mentioned in this article - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-saas-app-provisioning%C2%A0. This eliminates the need to stand up a new server and/or to install anything at all in the customer's environment. Just a few clicks and everything is setup.

     

    All the big players have started doing this.

    Hi Nick! 

    Thank you for the clarification toward the original post, and in your own request. I've submitted your request directly to our Product and Development teams for review. While I can’t provide a timeline or guarantee that this feature request will be implemented, we certainly take customer feedback into consideration when planning future developments. 

    Thanks again!

    We would also like to request this functionality.  Being able to utilize the built-in Azure AD SCIM provisioning is the ideal solution over having to install an AD Connector application whether it's on-prem or in a hosted environment.

    Hello Jason, 

    Thank you for posting to the community board about AD Azure SCM provisioning, I agree that this would be a useful tool for those utilizing Azure AD and I've added you to the feature request on the matter. 

    Our Dev team takes these requests seriously and is very interested in implementing enhancements for our users. While I can't provide a timeframe or guarantee on this implementation I will say that our Dev team takes these requests seriously and is very interested in adding these enhancements for our users.  

    Thank you for your submission, let us know if you have any other suggestions we could get to our dev team.

    Hi KB4 Team!

    1. Can we mark this Incomplete or Pending or anything other than Completed? The request is different from the solution that was posted.

    2. I want to up-vote this request, times are changing and Azure AD and other IDP tools are coming in fast... I'm sure you know the competitors have it and it is a factor to consider during the decision making.

    Hopefully we can get an ETA soon!

    Thanks,

    jerome

    This was marked as Completed but in reality it is not. Can that status be changed so we know it is still being worked on? Thanks.

    Hello Justin and Jerome! 

    I've changed the status of the post to Answered and not Completed so that we can continue to follow the upvotes associated. I'll also get your requests over to the dev department so that they know that this is a factor when choosing a training/ phishing platform. 

    I'm positive that our Dev team is always looking for ways to make user provisioning better for our customer base and full provisioning via Azure AD would be a great feature! 

    Thank you all for contributing and upvoting this popular post!

    Would just like to add a +1 for this, currently trailing the product and has put a real downer on the trial of an otherwise excellent product

    This is crucial for us. The majority of our clients are starting to manage primarily through Azure AD, not on-prem AD. Having to manually manage the users for dozens of companies is very labor intensive.

    As a cloud-forward business using Azure AD for identity management rather than on-prem AD, having SCIM provisioning available is very important for us. Currently I need to manually provision and deprovision on every change to our workforce, and this adds a significant workload. Setting up Azure AD Domain Services just to allow automatic provisioning with KnowBe4 is a cost we cannot take on.

    +1.  Another upvote for the ability to sync users from Azure AD to KnowBe4.

    We need this, too. We are trying to reduce reliance on Active Directory as we slowly migrate to Azure AD. KnowBe4 is one of the few services we have that still don't allow direct user provisioning (and changes/deletions) from Azure AD.

    Also adding my voice for this request.  It takes a huge burden out of user management by having a standardized method (SCIM) for importing users via a cloud service.  I've had to create three separate connectors for the domains under management and I spend way more time than I should just making sure its accurate.
