Microsoft identity platform (formerly Azure Active Directory for developers)

Microsoft identity platform is an evolution of the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) developer platform. It allows developers to build applications that sign in all Microsoft identities and get tokens to call Microsoft APIs such as Microsoft Graph or APIs that developers have built. It’s a full-featured platform that consists of an OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect standard-compliant authentication service, open-source libraries, application registration and configuration, robust conceptual and reference documentation, quickstart samples, code samples, tutorials, and how-to guides.
