Create Azure AD Application

Microsoft updates their interfaces occasionally and we do our best to keep the screenshots here up-to-date. Microsoft also personalizes your experience based on your account access and settings. Please understand that the screens here may not perfectly match what you see in Microsoft. You may find that these instructions more closely match your experience if you are using a legacy version of Azure.

Before you begin


To create an Application on Microsoft Azure AD

Microsoft Office 365 uses Azure AD for it's SSO for organizations, and uses Windows Live for the SSO for individuals. These instructions are for Azure AD as that's what your organization will need to use.

1. Log into Microsoft Azure

Log into the Portal for Microsoft Azure
