LiveTiles Directory is offered in two varieties depending on your Active Directory landscape and needs: Hybrid, or Online.
These are the attributes that Directory can manage by default on a fresh installation for each implementation type:
Default Directory Managed Attributes for Active Directory and Azure Active Directory
|Attribute Label||Directory Hybrid (AD)||Directory Online (Azure AD via Graph)|
|Standard Active Directory Profile Information|
Also simultaneously written to SPO and EXO photo stores with O365 Connector enabled
|Photos written through the Graph follow Microsoft's flow of updating the Exchange Online photo if an Exchange mailbox exists for the user, otherwise, it is written to the Azure AD photo store.|
|Post Office Box||postOfficeBox|
|O365 (Graph) Profile Attributes|
|Custom and Extended Attribute Support|
Active Directory Extended Schema Attributes supported out-of-the-box.
SharePoint Online User Profile custom attributes supported using the Legacy Office 365 connector.
Directory Extensibility in Managing Attributes
The Directory Hybrid configuration is the most flexible deployment of Directory. It can leverage both on-premises AD extended schema attributes as well as connected sources with custom attributes such as SharePoint Online User Profiles via the Office 365 connector.
Directory Online configurations are limited to what the Microsoft Graph API can expose for management. This is currently limited to the default attributes that Directory manages out-of-the-box. As Microsoft makes more attributes available through the Graph, Directory Online will be updated to support them.
