Welcome to another episode of it’s not all in Microsoft 365 E5. The moment you think I understand how to license the features of Active Directory Premium …. Microsoft has changed it.

The identity features are covered in the Microsoft Entra licenses. And with the launch of Entra, Microsoft also introduced new advanced features which are not in Microsoft 365 E5. 

Microsoft has 7 different Entra offerings today:

  • Entra ID Free
  • Entra ID for Office 365 Apps 
  • Entra ID Plan 1
