Change a federated user’s role in Apple School Manager
When you successfully complete your federated authentication, all users from your domain have the role of Student. You may want to change roles for Content Managers and Device Managers. If you change the role to Administrator, Site Manager, or People Manager, that user’s authentication changes from Federated (they use their Microsoft Azure AD password) to Apple. They still retain the Managed Apple ID and email address they had when federated authentication was completed.
