Setup demo users

Some years back, I did provide a blog post where you could change some settings on the Contoso demo users and login using the original credentials. Like many other things, there was a change done by Microsoft. As partners and customers, we were not allowed anymore to use the Azure AD credentials from Microsoft Contoso demo users. Microsoft on their turn provided a blog which guides you to reuse the users with credentials from your own Azure Active Directory. Every time I had to deploy a new environment, it took me some time to setup users which I wanted to use for demos or testing. I got the idea to solve this with a script using Microsoft Flow. In this post, I will tell about this and you may download and use it for your own environments.

If you are not (yet) familiar with Microsoft Flow, you can still read this post to be able to apply similar actions on your future requirements.
