Change my Azure tenant authentication from ADFS to Azure AD

We have an Azure tenant and the users that will log in to that will be authenticated from our ADFS. We are planning to decommission our ADFS so we need to migrate to Azure AD.

I would like to ask if there are steps on how to migrate or change our Azure tenant authentication from ADFS to Azure AD? Also, are there factors or impacts that we need to check first before we migrate our Azure tenant authentication? Thank you!

Hi,

Yes, you need a implementation plan to carry out this migration as it involves lots of components form infra to application.
Again, the authentication factor in Azure AD also have options like pass though / password hash sync etc when you moving away from ADFS.

Major factor to consider is your application support for Azure AD based authentication.

Start with the below articles to get an understanding on the migration approach.:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/manage-apps/migrate-adfs-apps-to-azure
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/core-infrastructure-and-security/ad-fs-to-azure-ad-migrations-notes-from-the-field/ba-p/2635847

Migrating all your application authentication to Azure AD is optimal, as it gives you a single control plane for identity and access management.
