Today's blog post is aimed at developers who build and manage apps that work with Azure AD and the Microsoft account service.
If you have apps registered to use Azure AD or Microsoft accounts in market today, we recommend you configure the terms of service and privacy statement for the app before April 2. If your app does not have these configured, the user consent experience for your app will show an alert. That alert could discourage users from consenting to your app.
Once you have the documents ready, it should take you less than 5 minutes to add them to your app. Just follow these step-by-step instructions:
If you registered your app in the Azure Portal:
Select your app and scroll to the
Fill out the
Terms of Service URL
Privacy Statement URL
Save your changes.
While the changes to the consent screen will light up on April 2
, you can make the changes to your apps now. We recommend you give yourself enough time to produce the right documentation before the change takes place. We want to make sure you continue onboarding users with the right level of professionalism and trust!
As always, we love hearing your feedback!
