Apple Business Manager and Azure AD: Which version do I need

Per Johnsen 21 Reputation points

Hi all,
We are considering using Azure AD as IdP for federating our Apple units through Apple Business Manager.

When reading how to set up the connection between ABM and Azure AD I see that we need to to register Apple Business Manager as a enterprise application in the Azure AD

Does that mean that we need the enterprise version of Azure AD?

We currently use Azure AD for Office 365


Microsoft Entra ID

    @Per Johnsen Thanks for using Microsoft Q&A !!
    No, registering Apple Business Manager as Enterprise Application in Azure AD doesn't mean an enterprise version of Azure AD. In Azure AD Enterprise applications blade on Azure portal you can view applications available in your Azure AD directory or tenant including any published application by different companies like Salesforce, ServiceNow etc.


    Apple Business Manager is also available for automatic user provisioning under this blade. You need to configure your Apple Business Manager application to make Azure AD provisions your users. Please refer to Tutorial: Configure Apple Business Manager for automatic user provisioning documentation which will help you to onboard your Apple Business Manager to Azure AD. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
