Azure AD B2B Collaboration
Azure AD allows B2B collaboration by enabling the use of a special set of Azure AD features to guest users who are invited to the Azure AD tenant. While some features are free, for any paid Azure AD features, guest users must be licensed as follows: with each Azure AD edition licence that you own for an employee or a non-guest user in your tenant, you will also be able to invite up to five guest users to the tenant. The features that you can extend to these guest users will depend on the type of Azure AD edition you purchase.
- There is no charge for inviting a guest user and assigning them to an application in Azure AD for up to ten apps per guest user. Other features of Azure AD “Free” edition, such as three basic reports, are also free for guest users.
- For paid Azure AD features that are extended to guest users, the inviting tenant will need the appropriate number of Basic or Premium P1 or Premium P2 licences to cover guest users in the ratio of one licence to five users as described above. For example, one Azure AD Basic licence will allow up to five guest users to be set up for Group-based Access Management and Provisioning. For the sixth guest user, you will need another Azure AD Basic licence. Similarly, one Azure AD Premium P1 licence will allow up to five guest users to use the Multi-factor authentication feature (as well as any Azure AD Basic features). For the sixth guest user who uses MFA, you will need a second Azure AD Premium P1 licence.
