An important feature of Nova is the ability to set up and use virtual organizational units. If you are familiar with on-premises Active Directory, then you will already be familiar with organizational units. The problem is that Azure Active Directory and Office 365 do not have this concept. The users are stored in a flat list, which can make working with multiple geographies and multiple departments much more difficult. So, in Nova we have re-introduced organizational units. We call them virtual organizational units. You can create a hierarchy of these just like you would in an on premises Active Directory environment.

To set up a virtual organizational unit

info

NOTE: Any organizational units set up in Nova are not pulled into Active Directory.

1.In the left menu, select Manage Administration > Tenants.

2.Then, either:

·Click the ellipsis button (...) next to a tenant and select New.

OR

·Create a virtual organizational unit that's nested under an existing one by expanding the tenant, finding the organizational unit you will create one under, clicking the ellipsis button (...) next to it, and selecting New.

3.Enter a name for the new organizational unit and click Save.

User Assignment Rule

When creating a virtual organizational unit, as well as giving the vOU a name, you can enter a User Assignment Rule.  With this feature users will be automatically moved to this virtual organizational unit, based on the rule that you specify.
User-Assignment-Rule

 

Here are some example rules:

User.City = “Zilina”

This assigns users to this OU when the users city is set to Zilina.
 
User.AccountEnabled = false

This assigns users to this OU when the user account is enabled.
 
User.City=”Redmond” and User.AccountEnabled = true

This assigns users to this OU when the city is set to Redmond, and the account is enabled.

How To...

Quadrotech Nova provides granular delegation and policy control for Office 365, enabling you to assign pre-defined roles and responsibilities to specific users, such as help desk operators, country-level administrators, or even end-users – setting boundaries far more precise than native delegation. Nova also includes policy-based automation for authorization, service configuration and license assignment.
