User directory lookup

  An administrator role is required. For information about user roles, see User roles .

Configure the User directory lookup settings to allow workflow designers to look up users and assign tasks to them. If User directory lookup is configured, you can select users from your Azure Active Directory in the Assignee field of the Assign a task action, Assignees field of the Assign a task to multiple users action, and the People form control.

In the User directory lookup configuration page, you can:

  • Connect to a user directory.
  • Rename and re-authenticate a connection.
  • Delete a connection.
Note: 
  • At the moment, you can only connect to Azure Active Directory or Azure Active Directory Administration.

  • You can connect to one user directory only. If you want to change Azure Active Directory Administration to Azure Active Directory, you must delete Azure Active Directory Administration and add Azure Active Directory.
