App registrations - preview or GA?

Hi there,

I've been advised to post here after asking Azure support:
https://twitter.com/ajbrun/status/1255432283084988417

I'm currently evaluating Azure services to be used for production. I have access to two directories, one that already does have some production services within it, and my own. My own directory states app registrations is in preview:
"App registrations (Preview)" is displayed in the breadcumbs and navigation.

The directory that is intended to be used for production does not mention preview.

Could you confirm if app registrations is made available for general availability, or should it be avoided for production use? The differences between my two directories is making me unclear...

Thanks

Just a guess. Is it in preview mode for B2C and it's showing like this for me because I've created a B2C AD? And therefore it's not recommended for production use?

If this is the case, do you have any visibility on when it's expected to have a GA release?

For regular Azure AD, the new app registration experience is generally available and the legacy experience has been deprecated. https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/identity/blogs/deprecation-of-app-registrations-legacy-experience-and-the-application-registration-portal-apps-dev-microsoft-com/

For Azure AD B2C, there is a separate experience and you can choose between using the current GA one and the preview one. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-b2c/tutorial-register-applications?tabs=applications
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/develop/app-registrations-training-guide-for-app-registrations-legacy-users

So you are correct. In Azure AD it's generally available but in B2C it's in preview. Some of the difference between the two experiences are described in those articles:

In the legacy experience, to register an app you were required to provide: Name, Application type, and Sign-on URL/Redirect URI. The apps that were created were Azure AD only single-tenant applications. They only supported organizational accounts from the directory the app was registered in.

In the new experience, you must provide a Name for the app and choose the Supported account types. You can optionally provide a Redirect URI. If you provide a redirect URI, you'll need to specify whether it's web/public (mobile and desktop).

Hope this helps!
