Hybrid environments

CodeTwo Active Directory Photos can be used to manage user photos in various environments:

  • In hybrid environments in which mailboxes are stored on a local (on-premises) Exchange server.


    Images added via CodeTwo Active Directory Photos will be visible in Exchange Online, Entra ID (Azure AD), and associated services (SharePoint, Skype, Outlook on the web, etc.) only if you synchronize your on-premises AD to Entra ID. You can do this via a dedicated sync application such as Microsoft Entra Connect (Azure AD Connect).

  • In mixed hybrid configurations where some of the mailboxes are stored on-premises and the rest in the Office 365 cloud, the local AD admin who uses the software can manage photos for the users that he/she has access (and Write permissions) to. To manage the photos of the remaining users, our other tool, CodeTwo User Photos for Office 365, can be used.  
  • In other types of hybrid environments and in cloud (Office 365) organizations, user photos can be managed with CodeTwo User Photos for Office 365.
