We're retiring the out-of-support WS-Federation authentication protocol and replacing it with industry standard OpenIdConnect OAuth security protocol. OpenIdConnect OAuth security protocol supports modern authentication, which includes multi-factor authentication and conditional access policy.
The authentication protocol for Finance and Operations apps is upgraded from WS-Federation to Open Web Interface for .NET (OWIN) with OpenIdConnect. This upgrade allows us to comply with the current standard authentication protocol and enables us to easily integrate and onboard external partners to run their applications with Finance and Operations apps.
