1 Default usage quota is 50,000 objects. An object is an entry in the directory service, represented by its unique distinguished name. An example of an object is a user entry used for authentication purposes. If you need to exceed this default quota, please contact support. The 500,000 object limit does not apply for Office 365, Microsoft Intune or any other Microsoft paid online service that relies on Azure Active Directory for directory services.
2 With Azure AD Free, end users who have been assigned access to SaaS apps can get unlimited SSO access to cloud apps. On-premises applications require Azure AD Application Proxy or secure hybrid partnerships integrations available with Azure AD P1 and P2.

5 Microsoft Identity Manager Server software rights are granted with Windows Server licences (any edition). As Microsoft Identity Manager runs on Windows Server OS, as long as the server is running a valid, licensed copy of Windows Server, then Microsoft Identity Manager can be installed and used on that server. No other separate licence is required for Microsoft Identity Manager Server.
6 First monitoring agent requires at least one licence. Each additional agent requires 25 additional incremental licences. Agents monitoring AD FS, AD Connect and AD DS are considered separate agents.
