Cloud Access Manager 8.1.1 - How To Configure Microsoft Office 365

Dell™ One Identity Cloud Access Manager 8.1.1 - How to Configure Microsoft Office 365

This guide describes how to configure Microsoft® Office 365™ for use with Dell™ One Identity Cloud Access Manager and how to add Microsoft® Outlook®, Lync®, Word®, Excel® and PowerPoint® to the Cloud Access Manager applications portal.
Adding Microsoft® Office 365™ to Cloud Access Manager


A wildcard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate signed by one of the Certificate Authorities trusted by Microsoft®. Free SSL certificate providers are unlikely to work and self-signed certificates cannot be used.
NOTE: We recommend that you choose a Certificate Authority that is listed in an up-to-date Windows Server 2008/2012 under Third Party Root Certificate Authorities. A regular single hostname certificate can be used, but a wildcard certificate is recommended if you will be using Cloud Access Manager to proxy other applications.
A local instance of Microsoft® Active Directory®
A copy of Office 2013 is required on any client browser server where the desktop Office clients will interact with Office 365. It is required to test configuration of the Lync and Outlook clients as described in Adding Microsoft® Outlook® to the Cloud Access Manager applications portal and Using Microsoft® Lync®. You can download Office 2013 using your Office 365™ account but this may take some time to complete. Earlier versions of Office are also supported by Office 365 (patches may be required), but with degraded functionality.
NOTE: Make sure that the following prerequisites, including the PowerShell execution policy in Step 2, are installed on all STS servers in the Cloud Access Manager deployment.
The default version of Microsoft .NET Framework and Windows PowerShell supplied with Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 R2 or Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012
Microsoft® Online Services Sign-In Assistant, msoidcli_64.msi
The PowerShell® execution policy must be set to RemoteSigned using the following command:

Installing Cloud Access Manager

NOTE: Enabling SSO in the browser affects the Primary Credentials functionality in Cloud Access Manager; please refer to the Dell™ One Identity Cloud Access Manager Configuration Guide for details.

Adding Microsoft® Office 365™ to Cloud Access Manager

Log in to using your Office 365 administrator credentials and click Domains in the navigation bar.
Click Add a domain, then follow the steps in the wizard to register your domain with Office 365.
NOTE: When adding your domain to Office 365 do not make it the default domain. It is not necessary to make it the default domain and it stops the Set-MsolDomainAuthentication powershell command (see step 9) from running successfully.
In Active Directory, add your Office 365 domain as a User Principal Name (UPN) suffix using Active Directory® Domains and Trusts. Right-click the top node, then select Properties to access the UPN suffixes dialog.
Open a PowerShell® command prompt.
Get-MsolDomainFederationSettings –DomainName

You should see the following output:

ActiveLogOnUri :
FederationBrandName : Cloud Access Manager
IssuerUri :
LogOffUri :
MetadataExchangeUri :
NextSigningCertificate :
PassiveLogOnUri :
To edit or update the domain federation settings, use the Set-MsolDomainFederationSettings command with the appropriate parameters.

For example, to update the signing certificate:
Set-MsolDomainFederationSettings -DomainName -SigningCertificate "MIIC8DCCAdig --//-- SPQTHw9aYYeC"
