Hi All,

Greetings for the day 🙂 LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL 🙂

Today, we will move further in preparation series for SC-300 exam. In this article we will discuss how to invite guest users to our Azure AD

If still didn’t got a chance to went through previous related articles – https://knowledge-junction.com/2021/03/19/azure-sc-300-identity-and-access-administrator-preparation-guide/  please have a look once. I am trying to keep as simple as possible 🙂

Details :

  • To give access to our organization resources, apps we need to invite the external users / B2B collaboration users to our Tenant
  • We can use Azure portal to invite external users
  • We can invite guest users to directory, to group or to an application
  • Once guest user is invited, the invited user account is added to Azure AD of type “Guest”
