The Microsoft Azure Service Bus is the underlaying system when the AD connector communicates with the MyWorkspace platform. This platform supports several connection options for: 

  1. Default (No outbound filters): A TCP connection will be used on the ports 5671 and 9350 - 9354.
  2. Only port 80 and port 443 are opened outbound and all other TCP ports are blocked:

    Port 80 is used by Microsoft Azure Service Bus to monitor the MyWorkspace message availability.
    Port 443 is used for message content delivering from/to Microsoft Azure Service Bus

    Keep in mind, all payloads are encrypted
  3. Only port 443 are opened outbound and all other TCP port are blocked: Only a single HTTPS/WebSocket connection will be used.
