Table of Contents (14 chapters)
Part 1: Getting Started with the Microsoft Identity Platform
Part 2: Authentication and Protocols
Part 3: Azure AD B2C


In this chapter, we have focused on Azure AD B2C. We have covered what features and functionalities Azure AD B2C has to offer, and we created a tenant, registered an application in it, and created a user flow. Finally, we used a sample application to connect to Azure AD and the configured app registration and signed in with a user account added to the Azure AD tenant.

In the next chapter, will continue with Azure AD B2C and we will build upon the demos that we created in this chapter. In the next chapter, we are going to focus on identity providers in Azure AD B2C and we will create a custom policy that sends data from Azure AD B2C to an Azure function when a user signs up to the application.
