    Guide for Magento 2 Azure Active Directory Login

    Updated 25 October 2023

    Using this Magento 2 Azure AD Login extension, the users having an account with Azure AD will be able to directly log in to the Magento 2 customer account using the Azure AD credentials at the Magento 2 website.

    Azure AD (Azure Active Directory) is Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service.

    It is a directory and identity management service that provides a single sign-on (SSO) experience for users, allowing them to access multiple applications and services with a single set of login credentials.

    For a fast and secure website, you can check out the Magento 2 Azure Speed and Security Optimization service. It will integrate different tools and technologies on your Azure server to make the website lightning-fast.

    To get a more clear idea of the module, kindly review the video below-
