Introduction

Use case

AzureCP is useful when SharePoint is federated with Azure Active Directory using WS-Federation or OpenID Connect.
It runs inside SharePoint and queries your Azure Active Directory tenant(s) to find users and groups:

Compatibility

AzureCP is fully compatible with all the supported versions of SharePoint Server: SharePoint Subscription, SharePoint 2019, SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint 2013.

Prerequisites

  • AzureCP 18+ requires at least .NET Framework 4.7.2 on all SharePoint servers.
  • AzureCP 17 requires at least .NET Framework 4.6.1 on all SharePoint servers.
  • All SharePoint servers need to be able to connect to Internet. Read this if you need to configure a proxy.
  • Azure AD administrator needs to create an app registration for AzureCP.
  • AzureCP requires permissions Group.Read.All and User.Read.All in Azure AD.

Features

  • Fix the search in the people picker.
  • Get group membership of Azure AD users (augmentation).
  • Query multiple Azure Active Directory tenants in parallel.
  • Populate the metadata (e.g. email, display name) of the entities.
  • Easy to configure through PowerShell or administration pages.
  • No dependency on any SharePoint service application.

Customization

AzureCP is highly customizable to adapt to your requirements:

  • Connect to your Azure Active Directory tenant using either a client secret or a certificate.
  • Customize the display of the results in the people picker.
  • Customize the claim types and their mapping with Azure AD objects.
  • Enable/disable augmentation.
  • Enable/disable connection to Azure AD, to keep AzureCP running with limited functionality if connectivity with Azure AD is lost.
  • Developers can deeply customize AzureCP to meet specific needs.
