Step 1: Setup Azure Active Directory as OAuth Provider

  • When the Create page appears, enter your application's registration information:
  • Name : Name of your application.
    Application type :
    1. Select "Native" for client applications that are installed locally on a device. This setting is used for OAuth public native clients
    2. Select "Web app / API" for client applications and resource/API applications that are installed on a secure server. This setting is used for OAuth confidential web clients and public user-agent-based clients. The same application can also expose both a client and resource/API.
    Sign-on URL :
    1. For "Web app / API" applications, provide the base URL of your app. eg, https://<domain-name>/mo_login might be the URL for a web app running on your local machine. Users would use this URL to sign in to a web client application.
    2. For "Native" applications, provide the URI used by Azure AD to return token responses. Enter a value specific to your application.
      eg, https://localhost/drupal
