Set up synchronization with Azure Active Directory

Azure AD sync is only available if you have a Sophos Email license.

To configure Azure Active Directory synchronization:

  1. In Settings, on the Active Directory Sync page, click the link to configure the settings for Azure AD Sync.
  2. Set up your Azure Applications, if required.
    Tip Click the link to the instructions if you need help with this.

    You can skip this step if you have already set up an Azure application.

  3. Configure the Azure Sync Settings:
    1. Enter the Client ID.
    2. Set the Tenant Domain.
    3. Enter the Application Key and set its expiration.

      You do not have to set the expiration date. We recommend that you do enter it so that Sophos Central can send you notifications of when your key is about to expire.

  4. Click Test Connection to validate the Azure Sync connection.
  5. Click Save.

    Synchronization starts. This process may take some time.
