Use Office365 Accounts to Register/Authenticate to the Application

Problem statement

This article explains the limitations of signing up and authenticating with an existing Office 365 account, similar to the Google Social Authenticator flow.


The Office365 connection has been deprecated, and Microsoft’s recommendation is to set up an Entra ID (Formerly Azure Active Directory (AD)) connection. Read more on that here:

Migrate Office365 Connections to Windows Azure AD
Connect Your App to Microsoft Azure Active Directory

Alternatively, create a Custom Social Connection with Office365:

Connect Apps to Generic OAuth2 Authorization Servers

  • When users successfully authenticate with the IdP, a user profile will be created in the User Dashboard.
