Introduction to Quest On Demand

Overview

On Demand is a cloud based management platform, providing access to multiple Quest Software Microsoft management tools through a single interface. Cloud based is a term that refers to applications, services or resources made available to users on demand via the Internet. Quest On Demand is a Software as a Service (SaaS) application where application software is hosted in the cloud and made available to users through quest-on-demand.com.

On Demand management is based on the concepts of organizations, modules, and Azure Active Directory (AD) tenants. When you sign up for the On Demand service, you create an organization. The organization can subscribe to modules. Organization administrators can use the tools provided by the modules to perform administrative actions on Azure AD tenants.

Organizations

On Demand administration is based on organizations. When a user signs up for On Demand, an organization is created.

You can add users to an organization. To add a user, click Settings in the navigation panel on the left and then click Permissions.

Azure Active Directory tenants

Microsoft Azure also uses the concept of an organization. An Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) tenant is representative of an organization. It is a dedicated instance of the Azure AD service that an organization receive and owns when it signs up for a Microsoft cloud service such as Azure, Microsoft Intune, or Office 365. Each Azure AD tenant is distinct and separate from other Azure AD tenants.

A tenant houses the users in a company and the information about them - their passwords, user profile data, permissions, and so on. It also contains groups, applications, and other information pertaining to an organization and its security. For more information see this Microsoft help page.

Group Management overview

On Demand Group Management controls the chaos of managing Azure Active Directory (AD) and Office 365 groups with group creation policies for naming, attestation, expiration, quantity limits, and more. The Group Management module safely empowers users with self-service group creation, management, and group membership reporting.
