[MUSIC] Welcome to the Managing Office 365 Identities and Requirements show. This particular overview is actually meant to help you to not only get ready for the exam, but to also prepare you for implementing Office 365 for a company or for a customer that you may have, as well. So, let's go ahead and take a look at what you have to do to get through this exam, as well. Some of the exam details. I simply took a search engine that I launched up through my browser. Typed in exam 70-346. That number is gonna be very helpful for you. And also take a note at the exam title itself. Manage Office 365 Identities and Requirements. Both of those are going to be necessary as you register for the exam. Whether it's through Pearson VUE online portal itself, or whether you go to a Pearson VUE center and you decide to register manually, both of those are actually gonna be used at some point. They're either gonna ask you for the name of the exam, or they're gonna ask you to verify the exam number, you'll need to know both of them to make sure that you can get scheduled in, okay? This particular exam itself has been around for a long, I say a long time, a while, at least since February of 2014. So it is a relatively mature exam in terms of what we see. Now that doesn't mean that this exam though in what we've also prepared for in the show is going to be old, okay? And that is because, as of June 2017, the exam itself has been updated. So make sure you check this out, okay? If you're actually of course past June of 2017, you're gonna need to download and review all of the changes that were made to the exam objectives themselves. The exam objectives are actually broken out into six different domains divided up by different percentages that you may actually end up seeing as well, okay? So those domains of course will divide up into skills that you'll need to be aware of too. Now just when we talk about those skills and understanding them, it doesn't mean that those are limited to those skills only. If I flip on over here, this is where that link takes you. Here is the latest exam objectives according to the site that they've changed here, and you can see where it says, document shows changes to scoping statements. These changes were effective as of June 2017. You wanna make sure that you are prepared for this exam, not only by, of course, understanding what the skills measured are, but notice who should take the exam itself. So at this point, you have to actually be experienced in a couple of different things. And this is what I want you to focus in on. Candidates should have experience with Office 365 admin center, and understanding of Microsoft Exchange Online, Skype for Business, SharePoint Online, Office 365 ProPlus, and Windows Azure Active Directory. And it also includes experience in service descriptions, configuration integration services, with identity management and on premises infrastructure, to support some of the business requirements here. So this is not meant for someone is just saying, hey, I'm just jumping at this and I should just jump right into Office 365. Now it doesn't mean that can't do that, know it means it's gonna be much more difficult for you if you don't have some of those skills already set down, or if you're not familiar with the products that are listed right here. So my suggestions, of course, is that before you end up just taking even this first exam, make sure you also take a look at the 70-347 skill objectives there as well to understand how you enable the services and manage those services as well to get all those things up an running and understand those products too, okay? So that way you'll be familiar with some of the requirements that they're talking about this way too. So once you have that in your mind and you're ready to go, here are some of the episodes that we should be covering, okay? Underneath the provisioning, we talk about provisioning tenants, okay? What does that actually mean? And how do we begin to do it? And what are the best practices for those? We also begin to add in and configure, of course, a custom domain. And when we talk about, we'll also talk about of course the use of DNS ownership. We'll also take a look at registering those DNS records the way that we need to as well. And the updating and verifying domain settings. The ones that we see in red are of course, the added end objectives that we had, or a change objective that has been put in place since June of 2016. We also go through planning a pilot and we'll take a look at delegating pilot users. We will also end up running some of these different tests here that they talk about. As well as understanding the use of the fast track Office to onboard Office 365 services as well. We'll also of course configure all of our DNS records that we need to, we'll take a look at that as well and make sure that they are working. Client connectivity, we will of course address client connectivity. We'll talk about the ability to protect all of our files and documents the way that we want to with the integration with the Azure Rights Management as well. And we'll see some of the set up templates for Rights Management to help us to protect email. We'll manage the administrator roles that are there and available. We'll talk about those roles briefly, make sure you understand where you configure those for your users inside of Office 365. We'll also take a look at cloud identity management, where we configure password management, as well as user and security groups. We'll also of course, implement the Azure AD Connect tool. This is probably the biggest update, at least since the last domain was updated here, okay? Now it's not that they didn't call this out on a previous iteration of the exam. It's just that the tool may have been available, but the tool may not have been available, because it was in transition for a long time. But we'll actually get that implemented when we prepare for single sign on Active Directory for Azure AD Connect. We'll set up the Azure AD Connect tool itself and then we'll actually show you how to manage Active Directory users and groups using the Connect tool while it's actually in place. And we'll talk about the topology that needs to be implemented as well. Then probably the largest scope of what we'll deal with is the idea here of using and implementing single sign-on between your on-premises domain, as well as your Azure Active Directory Federation Services and your domain up there as well. So we will, of course, plan out for Active Directory Federation Services. We'll install and manage the actual federation server itself, including the certificates, and we'll also implement a proxy server too. So we'll see all that information that's going to be available there, too. Lastly, of course, we'll spend a little bit of time taking a look at reports. We'll talk about how we can monitor to health, and isolate service interruption using the tools that are available. In this last section we also see some of these tools are deprecated and we'll mention some of the things that we might have to be able to understand. But even though they're deprecated they're still called out on the exam objectives. So make sure you pay attention there too. But overall though, if this seems like what you're heading your career towards, or you're gonna be managing Office 365, this is a great place for you to begin to understand how to get all that configured. And you'll also be able to prepare for this first exam and your MCSA. So, if you're ready to do that, join us in the very next episode. [MUSIC]
