First published on CloudBlogs on May 10, 2017 by Microsoft Azure Active Directory Team Hi everyone, Happy Build week! Every team in the Identity Division is focusing more than ever on making developers successful on our identity platform, so we’re really excited to share today’s news: Azure Active Directory B2C enhancements and the new Microsoft Authentication Libraries (MSAL), both available in preview.
Azure Active Directory B2C: Super simple or as customized as you need!
Simple: The standard, out-of-the-box option that requires minimal or no code will still be available for those projects that are straightforward and don’t require customization.
Custom: For more demanding sign-up and sign-in scenarios, Azure Active Directory B2C will expose the power of the core engine of Azure Active Directory platform for a fully customizable user experience.
This new custom configuration option, which is currently in public preview, lets developers:
Integrate with existing user databases of customers/citizens/employees, CRM systems, and marketing analytics tools
Define user journeys step-by-step as exchanges between claims providers
Define conditional branching in user journeys
Integrate REST API-enabled services in custom authentication user journeys
Enable federation with identity providers compliant with the OpenID Connect standard.
Enable federation with identity providers adhering to the SAML 2.0 protocol
We hope you find these new features as critical to your business as the team from the State of Indiana did: “Having the ability to do everything as efficiently as possible helps make Indiana a great state to live in and do business [in]. We’re one of the more business-friendly states in the Midwest, and INBiz with Azure AD B2C ensures that we can strengthen that position.” Jim Obermaier, Program Manager for INBiz, Indiana Secretary of State Visit the Azure AD B2C website for more details.
