With the release of Jamf Connect w/ Azure integration, Jamf provides a tool (amongst other functionality) to create local user accounts on your Macs. This based on the identity of the user in Azure.
I noticed this latest Jamf Connect release triggers additional interest in integrating Azure as an LDAP server. Azure LDAP integration was on my blog to-do list for some time now, but other topics jumped ahead in my priority list. So to finally clear this from my to-do list, hereby a quick post on how to add Azure as an LDAP service in Jamf Pro.
I’ll try to keep this one as short as possible. Managing Azure AD and enabling the required services (LDAPs) is a bit beyond my scope here. Allow me to assume that you already configured it for other integrations outside Jamf Pro.
Nevertheless, let’s run through the different steps on a high level overview, and try to highlight some important notes. After this we’ll have a look at the default mapping settings in Jamf Pro.
