Active Directory connection PowerApps

Hey, 

 

I have a solution which is deployed in one state and we're looking to onboard many more. 

 

We have our exchange server as an on-prem solution so we cannot access our active directory in the cloud. 

 

Would our best solution be;

1) Create a database of users in PowerApps to associate to State/Projects?

2) Is there a way we can connect to the Active Directory so we use the database to filter users upon opening the apps?

 

Cheers

Re: Active Directory connection PowerApps

Having your Exchange server on-premises does not automatically mean that your AD isn't synced with the cloud.  Do users use Cloud only accounts to log in to Office 365?  Cloud only accounts will have a user principal login id that looks like this user@tenant.onmicrosoft.com.  If you are instead using an account that matches your company domain you can still filter users normally using Azure AD, which is synced with your on-premises AD.

 

Are you using cloud only accounts?

Thanks for that, 

 

Really good explaination! We're still on a on-prem, but I will now ask our IT to sync the Azure AD with the on-prem AD, 

 

That will allow us to maximise the applications for across states and with flow. 

 

Cheers,
