    Blog: Leverage Custom Permissions in Azure AD Applications

    In my last post, Securing an Azure Function App with Azure AD - Works with SharePoint Framework!, I showed how you can secure a REST API deployed as an Azure Function App using Azure Active Directory (AzureAD). This comes in quite handy when you want to secure some custom server-side business logic that'’s called from a SharePoint Framework (SPFx) client-side solution. The SPFx docs show how to use APIs with permissions to the Microsoft Graph. This post will explain how to add custom permissions to the AzureAD application that is used to secure your Azure Function.

    Blog: Validating Azure AD Generated OAuth Tokens

    If you create an application or API that is secured with Azure AD, you are likely going to require a consumer of your application to provide an OAuth access token in order to access your application or API. The caller would have to obtain this token from Azure AD by first authenticating with Azure AD and then request a token for your application. For the rest of this post, I’m going to assume you are working with a REST API, but everything applies to an application as well.

When I was working on this chapter, it felt like the process of configuring an Azure Function App to be secured with Azure AD was harder and more complex than it should have been. Specifically, some of the things you do aren’t explained as well… so I decided to blog about it here!
