SharePoint App-Only Authentication Support

Copper Contributor

Hi Team, 

I have been hearing that the SharePoint App Only principals created through _layouts/15/appregnew.aspx and managed in /appinv.aspx will potentially be retired for SPO with changes  potentially happening from next year (2024).

Can anyone verify this and let us know what changes and support for this approach will be expected.

I realize that there is a better permission model to follow, just making sure that we are aware of deadlines etc. for our apps and processes.

My recommendation is to start migrating as much as possible but they've not added any EOL date as of yet.

@NicolasKheirallah amazing.
