I would like to know if it's possible to authenticate wireless clients through Azure AD/Office 365? Right now we use Radius with a local AD. The local AD is going to be 'replaced' with Azure AD premium, so we are looking for a different solution.

I've noticed we have the option in our Zonedirector 1200 to use 'social media' to authenticate. In the list of options 'Microsoft' is shown. This might be interesting since with the new Azure 2.0 AD authentication it's possible to authenticate with both personal and professional (read Azure) credentials.

What basic configuration should I make in order to authenticate through this method?

This works!

Problem:
We also want to use Azure / Office365 accounts for authentication on a separated network (ssid / vlan). The problem is that now people with an MS account and people with an Azure account of our organization can sign in. So I cannot prevent that other guests (with MS account) can log on to this network.

Someone a suggestion to ensure that only people from our own domain (Azure / Office365) can sign in?

Did you figure it our how to get Azure to Authenticate? If so, can you post the setup.
You could add a WPA2 password also, extra to the MS Login, i have this option in my firmware in Unleashed. Not sure if you can lock down to certain domain.

Not really. Free MS accounts and Office 365 accounts are considered the same when you choose 'social media' to authenticate. I solved it by linking our Azure (on-premises) AD with O365 AD, via Azure AD Connect. I have set up a radius server on the on-presises AD that I use as Ruckus authentication.

We have created an azure / Office365 solution for Ruckus (Smartzone). We are looking for companies that want to test it.

Users can login with their Azure/Office365 credentials and receive a DPSK. You can define in which user role we create the Dpsk based on groups in Azure/Office365. You can also choose to block certain groups. If the user leave the company/school we automatically delete the Dpsk. So everything is in sync.

Solution is fully cloud based and you can make a connection with Ruckus in 2 minutes.

 

Login screen (front end)

Landing page after loginlandingpage

Assign azure groups to user groups in Ruckus or block groups

We need api's, and there are no api's for the zone director. Otherwise we would love to integrate it.

So I heard Unleashed also has no API access, what about CloudWifi, does it have access to a API?
