This article explains in extremely short way, how to fetch your Azure Active Directory tenant’s Directory ID. Let’s make it short and sweet, because quite frankly, it is really simple!

Solution

Option 1: Use whatismytenantid.com for finding your tenant/directory id:

Quick solution – works (at least) for all standard tenants:

  1. Navigate to https://www.whatismytenantid.com/
  2. Enter the domain associated with your Azure AD instance (often like contoso.onmicrosoft.com)
  3. Let ShareGate do their magic and find your tenant/directory id for you!

Thanks to Thomas Vochten for pointing this out in the comments section! ☺️

Didn’t work? Here’s another option!

Option 2: Find the tenant/directory id from your Azure AD admin portal

Please note, that as this is something Microsoft keeps changing, there’s a fair chance it’ll break at some point. Just leave me a comment, and I’ll fix it :)

How to find out the Directory ID of your AAD tenant?

  1. Open your Azure AD portal and navigate to “Properties” blade

    This link should take you there directly: https://aad.portal.azure.com/#blade/Microsoft_AAD_IAM/ActiveDirectoryMenuBlade/Properties

    Simply log in, and you should land on the Properties blade. If you don’t, see step 2 below!

  2. If you landed to Azure AD home page instead of Properties, click “Properties” on the left hand side navigation – probably all the way down!

  3. You can see the ID on the page under “Directory ID”
