About Azure Active Directory and OpenID

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft's multi-tenant cloud-based directory and identity management service. Azure AD provides single sign-on (SSO) access to many cloud-based SaaS applications, and includes a full suite of identity management capabilities.

OAuth is an open standard for authorization used by Azure AD. OpenID Connect is built on top of OAuth and extends it. You can use OpenID Connect as an authentication protocol rather than just an authorization protocol.

Configuring Azure AD and OpenID Connect

See Integrate Azure AD using OpenID Connect how to configure and integrate this for your solution.
