I am trying to work with synchronizing users into Office 365. What I cannot figure out is what is the difference between a federated user and a regular user. I see there is a cmdlet to convert a federated user to a regular user (
Convert-MsolFederatedUser) but I cannot quite figure out what is different?
I am interested in:
- The data needed to provide for each case, in creating the user.
- What the consequences of being a user of each type might be.
- License differences?
