Your default directory service quota is calculated according to the following guidelines:
- If you don't have any verified domains
The current directory service quota in Azure AD is 50,000 objects.
- If your organization was created before October 5, 2011, your default directory service quota is 10,000 objects.
- If your organization was created after October 5, 2011 and before May 2012, your default directory service quota is 20,000 objects.
- If your organization was created after May 2012, your default directory service quota is 50,000 objects.
- If you have at least one verified domain
The default directory service quota in Azure AD is 300,000 objects.
To continue to create objects in your organization, you must either add a domain or request an increase to your directory service quota. To do this, use the following methods.
Method 1: If you don't have a verified domainYou must add a domain to increase your quota limit to 300,000 objects. For more information, go to the following Microsoft website:
Method 2: If you have more than 300,000 objects in your on-premises Active Directory directory serviceTo increase the number of objects that can be synced beyond 300,000, contact Support.
Frequently asked questionsQ1. Do objects that were manually added through the cloud service portal or through the cloud service API, such as Exchange Online PowerShell, count against my online company quota?
Q2. Do deleted objects count against my online company quota?
A2. Yes. When a cloud service customer deletes an object from an online company, the deleted object is put into a deleted objects container in the directory service. The object remains in the deleted objects container until the tombstone lifetime expires. The expiration is currently set to 30 days.
For example, consider the following scenario. An online company is evaluating a cloud service by using a nonproduction on-premises Active Directory environment. The cloud service organization was created before October 5, 2011, and the default sync limit is 10,000 objects. The company performs a bulk sync of 8,000 group objects and contact objects by using the Directory Sync tool. Later, the online company decides to do the following:
- Delete those group objects and contact objects from the company's on-premises nonproduction Active Directory DS environment.
- Add 8,000 user objects to its on-premises nonproduction Active Directory DS environment.
- Sync the updates to its online company.
In this scenario, the online company that's performing the evaluation of the cloud service must reduce the number of objects in its nonproduction on-premises Active Directory DS environment to complete the product evaluation. However, if the online company can't reduce the number of objects, the company must request an increase in its directory service quota.
Q3. Does having more than one verified domain mean that I can have a quota that's higher than 300,000 objects?
A3. No. You're granted a directory quota of 300,000 objects if you have one or more verified domains. You're not granted a quota of 300,000 objects for each verified domain that you register.
