Domain filtering

Domain filtering is a feature in the Microsoft 365 connector that makes it possible to filter which Microsoft 365 users to import based on the domain name. A list of verified domains is fetched for the Microsoft 365 tenant, and the domains for which to import the data from can be selected. Users with a matching domain in their UserPrincipalName are imported.

Even though the user list will be filtered, the number of subscriptions cannot be filtered by the domain name. The subscription information sent to Snow License Manager will represent the state for the whole Microsoft 365 estate.

To use domain filtering:

  1. Select Domain filtering.

    The Filter by domains dialog box opens.

  2. Select the Enable domain filtering checkbox.

  3. Select the domains that you want to import data from.

    Select All selects all of the domains in the list.

    Select None clears the checkboxes.

Scheduling

To configure a schedule for the Microsoft 365 connector:

  2. In the Active connectors list, select the Microsoft 365 connector.

  3. Select Schedule.

    The Schedule for Microsoft 365 connector dialog box appears.

  4. Select the Schedule aggregation at every checkbox, and then set an aggregation interval.

  5. Select OK to save the schedule and close the dialog box.

Note

The connector should be scheduled outside of the time span when the Data Update Job (DUJ) is active/running. Otherwise, performance of both the connector and the DUJ might be affected negatively.
