Office 365 E3 and AAD P1

Bryant Schaper 21 Reputation points

Ok, so maybe we messed up 10 years ago when we migrated to O365 E3, but our needs were simple in Azure, and now we are moving more resources into Azure. But when I go AAD I see Azure AD Free and not the P1 licensing that comes with O365 E3. I have been searching for how to fix this, but came up with nothing except a reference to a "Welcome" email I would have got a decade ago.

Any thoughts? I did open a support ticket as well, but no response yet.

    Office 365 E3 does not come with Azure AD Premium, Microsoft 365 plans do. And technically you're not getting the Azure AD Free tier, but a separate tier for O365 customers with few additional features enabled (I know it still displays Azure AD Free in the portal).
    Anyway, if you need AAD Premium functionality, you need to either purchase standalone AAD P1/P2 licenses, or upgrade your plan to Microsoft 365 E3.

    Thanks, I could have swore I saw somewhere about premium ad, but maybe it was just the added features.
