As part of the Microsoft Security Customer Experience Engineering (CxE) team, part of my role is to help customers learn more about the capabilities they already have, and how to deploy them. This can be a mix of different levels of experience and where they may be on their goals, but it is common that there is always more they would like to learn about Microsoft Entra even if they have been using Azure Active Directory for years.
However, what if you were just starting out and wanted to learn more about Microsoft Entra? Where would you start?
I was working as a mentor with someone and in helping them they asked for some recommendations on how to learn more, and how to setup a lab environment so they can get more hands on with the concepts they would be learning about. I said I would put together a list to share, and since I think others may benefit I decided to post it here for others to discover and share. I’m always looking for ways to share information and help others learn more, so I thought this would be useful.
Please feel free to take a look at Learn Microsoft Entra where I put a summary of resources to help people of any experience level, from just starting out to experts learn more about the capabilities and how to deploy them.
