Implement token customizations


You can specify the lifetime of a token issued by Microsoft identity platform. Additionally, you can set token lifetimes for all apps in your organization, for a multi-tenant (multi-organization) application, or for a specific service principal in your organization. In Azure AD, a policy object represents a set of rules that are enforced on individual applications or on all applications in an organization. Each policy type has a unique structure, with a set of properties that are applied to objects to which they are assigned.

You can designate a policy as the default policy for your organization. The policy is applied to any application in the organization, as long as it is not overridden by a policy with a higher priority. You also can assign a policy to specific applications. The order of priority varies by policy type.

Configure authentication session management with Conditional Access

In complex deployments, organizations might have a need to restrict authentication sessions. These complex scenarios might include:

  • Resource access from an unmanaged or shared device.

  • Access to sensitive information from an external network.

  • High impact users.

  • Critical business applications.

Conditional Access controls allow you to create policies that target specific use cases within your organization without affecting all users.
