We want to have a custom domain and users associated to it. ex: jdoe@fieldlevel.com We want to ensure everything we do in Azure is under our domain, not the default one they create for us.

Setup Azure's Active Directory and add your users.

@Location: Old Portal

  1. On the sidebar choose "Active Directory"
  2. Select A Directory
    • (A default directory will already be created for you. It's actually called "Default Directory". You can change the name later)

Add a domain.

  1. Select the DOMAINS nav.
  2. Click "Add" icon in footer of the page.
  3. Enter your domain name.
  4. Don't click the checkbox for a local active directory unless you are required to. (Most people probably are not).
  5. Verify your domain using a method of your choosing.
  6. Make this domain your primary domain by clicking "Change Primary" in the footer.

Add Users.

  1. Click USERS in nav.
  2. Click the "Add" icon in the footer of the page.
  3. Add users that you want to access Azure and assign roles.

Add a "Deploy" User

  1. I recommend you create a user for example "deploy@yourcompany.com" that you will uses down the road to help automate your infrastructure and deployment needs.

Add an "Admin" Group.

  1. Click the GROUPS nav.
  2. Click "Add" icon in footer of the page.
