Location resolved base on IP is inconsistent

Super Contributor

There appears to be a difference between the service used by AAD and MCAS to resolve an IP to a physical location.


We got an alert in MCAS for a user logging in from Sweden while in the Netherlands. According to AAD, the IP address is located in The Netherlands, but not for MCAS?

Hi @bart vermeersch,


Thank you for the feedback.


You are correct.  MCAS doesn’t use the same geo provider as AAD. We are aligning to the same geo provider, so this should not be a issue in the future.  No ETA at the moment however.
