create guest account

Brass Contributor

Hi All,

I want to create a guest account. I have logged in to the Exchange Online Admin Center and created a mail contact. However, I am not seeing this mail contact in Azure AD. Will mail contacts not show up in Azure AD?
If i need to create a guest account in Azure AD should i use invite external user in EntraID? The guest account will be used for B2B. I want to invite external user in Azure EntraID, Please help me with PowerShell syntax to create guest users with below fields in EntraID, is the below syntax correct?

Email:
DisplayName:
Send Invite Message:(This box to be checked)
FirstName
LastName
UserType:Guest
CompanyName:
JobTitle

$email = "email address removed for privacy reasons"
$displayName = "FN LN"
$sendInviteMessage = $true
$firstName = "FN"
$lastName = "LN"
$userType = "Guest"
$companyName = "SomeCompany"
$jobTitle = "Developer"
New-AzureADMSInvitation -InvitedUserEmailAddress $email -InvitedUserDisplayName $displayName -SendInvitationMessage $sendInviteMessage -InvitedUserType $userType -InvitedUserOrganizations $companyName -InvitedUserJobTitle $jobTitle

You need a mail user object, not mail contact.
