Office 365: Another approach to add external users to a SharePoint Online Site (II)!

In the same way you can add external users from an auxiliar Azure AD to existing SharePoint Online sites, you can do just the same with external users that have a Microsoft account so you can avoid to send an invitation link to them. This approach implies to follow the steps bellow:

  • First, add the Microsoft account in your Office 365 Azure AD.

  • Verify in the Office 365 Portal that the user has been added and it’s available to provide access to SharePoint Online sites.

  • Execute the following PowerShell Script in Windows Azure Active Directory Management Shell.
$sUserName="jcgonzalez@nuberosnet.onmicrosoft.com"

$sMessage="Introduce your Office 365 Credentials"

$O365Credentials

$O365Credentials=Get-Credential -UserName $sUserName -Message $sMessage

Connect-MsolService -Credential $O365Credentials

 

$sExternalUserMicrosoftAccount="jcgonzalezmartin1978_outlook.es#EXT#@NuberosNET.onmicrosoft.com"

$msolExternalUserMicrosoftAccount=Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName $sExternalUserMicrosoftAccount

Set-MsolUser -ObjectId $msolExternalUserMicrosoftAccount.ObjectId -UserType Guest

  • Share an existing SPO Site with the external user with a Microsoft account without sending an invitation and verufy the user can access the site without problems…and that’s all.
