Self Service Password Reset with on-premises writeback in Microsoft 365 Business



Nicolas Charritton
Sr. Product Marketing Manager
Microsoft 365


Earlier this year we announced support for on premises Active Directory in Microsoft 365 Business. Many of our partners have expressed the need for end users to be able to reset their password and to have this updated in the cloud and also on-premise. I'm pleased to announce that Self-Service Password Reset with on-premises writeback capability is now available in Microsoft 365 Business.

Self Service Password Reset (SSPR) is a feature already included in Microsoft 365 Business, that allows users to change their password in the cloud. Password writeback is a complimentary feature that enables those password changes to be written back to an existing on-premises directory in real time. This simplifies password operations and helps ensure consistent application of password policies.
