I am looking to make the move away from Chrome to Edge. My company uses Linux; and I was thrilled to get to play around with the new Chromium-based Edge for Linux.
The single feature that is missing that will prevent me from making this switch is the ability to sign-in to Edge with my Azure AD work account. Currently, Edge for Linux only supports sign-ins with MS Personal accounts.
I have been following the "What's New" and "Top Feedback" sections of the Insider Community for the last couple weeks; and have likewise submitted this feedback directly through Edge a couple of times. I have not seen anything on the site (I could easily just be overlooking it?) regarding this and was curious if it is on the radar/roadmap; and if so; is there any best guess as to an ETA?

@challamzinnia A quick note to let you know that you haven't missed anything on this forum. I check in every week and read anything and everything that can be found with the search term "linux", and there has been no mention of this issue. That doesn't surprise me; the Edge Team has been remarkably silent on all things Edge-Linux in this forum.
You've filed Feedback, and that is usually the best way to bring Microsoft's attention to an issue, although Feedback doesn't normally get a substantive response.
It is possible that your company's Azure AD instance is not yet supported by Edge, and the problem you are encountering is general rather than specific to Edge-Linux: "Currently, Microsoft Edge only supports Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) accounts belonging to the global cloud or the GCC sovereign cloud. We are working on adding support for other sovereign clouds."
It you have access to a Windows 10 computer, you might try signing in from Edge on that computer; if you can't sign to your company's Azure AD from the Windows computer, that suggests that the problem is related to a currently unsupported Azure AD instance rather than an issue with Edge-Linux.
On the off chance that there is something in your particular configuration (either on your end or on your company's Azure end) that is blocking Azure AD login, you might open a ticket with Microsoft Edge Insider Support.

@tomscharbach Thanks for the reply.
I have successfully signed in with my AAD on both Windows and Android Edge - they are syncing without issue. It's just the Linux version that is left out in the cold. For now I have exported/imported bookmarks - but this is a far cry from the full sync I was hoping for.
Fingers crossed that MS will get this added soon. :)

I too am disappointed by not being able to sign the Edge browser into the company microsoft account. Everything works really well except that.
Running Fedora, on HP 15u G6 laptop, and it runs pretty much perfectly.
If I boot windows, then I can sign Edge into the microsoft account.

Don't worry, we're working on it! We definitely plan on supporting it on Linux just like we do on our other platforms.
