Azure can be integrated with Authomize so that Authomize will be able to analyze identity and access information held on Azure. Information such as users, groups, roles and are extracted once and updated regularly thereafter.
Note: When Azure is integrated with Authomize, Azure AD and Microsoft Office 365/SharePoint/ OneDrive are also integrated.
