Published Apr 24 2023 07:28 AM 4,058 Views

Hi folks, 


Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) B2C, part of Microsoft Entra, enables organizations and individuals across the globe to achieve more by addressing their key security and privacy requirements, including the question of where your data is located. Today, we’re thrilled to announce Go Local Data Residency is in public preview for Japan. 


In Azure AD, Data Residency is determined by the country/region selected when creating a tenant. The Go Local data residency add-on is an option that enables Azure AD Premium P1 and P2 customers to purchase local data residency rights for their customer directory data. 


Today, Japan has been added to the available locations list to select local data residency. It’s as simple as enabling the Go-Local add-on and your Azure AD B2C data to be stored in Japan.  


With this update, we look forward to helping customers in Japan further accelerate their digital transformation. Our continued focus on our trusted cloud principles and leadership in compliance provides all our customers across the globe with the necessary security foundation to achieve compliance for their own applications. 


For any location Go-Local is a paid add-on that costs $0.02 per monthly active user. 


To get started using Go-Local in Japan, you can enable Go-Local add-on when you create a new Azure AD B2C tenant by using Azure REST API or Azure Portal.
