Quickstart: Configure named locations in Azure Active Directory
With named locations, you can label trusted IP address ranges in your organization. Azure AD uses named locations to:
- Detect false positives in risk events. Signing in from a trusted location lowers a user's sign-in risk.
- Configure location-based Conditional Access.
In this quickstart, you learn how to configure named locations in your environment.
To complete this quickstart, you need:
- An Azure AD tenant. Sign up for a free trial.
- A user, who is a global administrator for the tenant.
- An IP range that is established and credible in your organization. The IP range needs to be in Classless Interdomain Routing (CIDR) format.
Configure named locations
Sign in to the Azure portal.
In the left pane, select Azure Active Directory, then select Conditional Access from the Security section.
On the Conditional Access page, select Named locations and select New location.
Fill out the form on the new page.
In the Name box, type a name for your named location.
In the IP ranges box, type the IP range in CIDR format.
