AzureAD only for office 365 users.

Hello Guys,

Right now using AzureAD only for office 365 users. Could you explain what is the license cost and how many licenses do I need? I m sorry but I was trying to understand that licensing model, but I want to be sure :)

  • Let's say that now I'm paying for 10 O365 licenses

  • I'll synchronize 50 users from on-premise AD do AzureAD(they will not use O365)

  • All of these 50 users will be using 1 device(autopilot + Intune)

  • No one of these 10 O365 users will be using intune or autopilot.



Do I need to pay for P1 license for all 60 users that are visible in AzureAD?

Do I need to pay for O365 license for all of 60 users visible in AzureAD?

Will I pay for P1 license for 100users or just 50 that I'll assign the license to?

@PankajLohumi-9228 Azure AD Premium P2 license is assigned on per user basis. If only 100 users wants to use the premium features, license needs to be assigned to only those 100 users and not to all 200 users.

For guest users, you need to maintain 5:1 which means, if guest users want to use Premium P2 features, you don't need to assign 5 licenses to 5 guest users. You just need to assign 1 license to any of those 5 guest users. If 10 guest users want to use Premium feature, assign license to only 2 guest users out of those 10 users, in order to stay compliant.

Hope this answers your question.

Thanks, @amanpreetsingh-msft for your Answer,

I just want to understand if we upgrade the licensing to p1 or p2 it will not do auto-upgrade to all users until we assign it ? & cost will remain the same as it right now for existing office 365 users?

@PankajLohumi-9228 Until and unless you assign the licenses, no license will be assigned to any user automatically and you only pay for the licenses that are assigned.

With Office 365, you get a "basic" version of Azure AD, so you don't need to purchase anything. Unless you want the users to take advantage of additional services, such as password writeback, or entitlement management, etc. Intune being one mentioned in your original post is NOT considered part of Azure AD, but requires a separate license, which can be purchased as part of the EMS suite.

Refer to this page for comparison between the different Azure AD editions/plans: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/active-directory/
And this one for EMS features: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/enterprise-mobility-security/compare-plans-and-pricing

so my question is
if i have office 365 license for 100 users and later on we planned for Azure Active directory services for 100 users with p2 license so when we will purchase the p2 license will it charge for all 200 users or only for those users whom we select for p2.

we have already 365 licenses we want to add more users in Azure Active directory but not for office 365, & want buy p2 license for premium services for that newly added user. And I am worried if buy p2 or p1 license it will apply to all users including those office 365 users and cost will increase & we want to avoid this
