How to add Azure AD as web app authentication provider?TypeScript
In Azure, you can manage authentication for your web applications using Azure Active Directory (AD). To do this, you will need to set up an Azure AD Application and a Service Principal, which Azure uses to authorize resources.
Firstly, the Azure AD Application represents an identity created for your application in the Azure AD.
Secondly, the Service Principal is an instance of the application in a tenant and represents a concrete identity used for running processes or accessing resources.
Thirdly, you can use the
WebAppAuthSettingsresource from the
azure-nativeto enable Azure AD authentication for your Azure Web App.
Here is a TypeScript program that does these tasks:
After running this code, the application you created will be authorized to manage resources via Azure AD. The
WebAppAuthSettingsconfigures the Azure AD as the authentication provider for your Azure Web App.
Please replace placeholders
<...>with appropriate values, like your Azure Subscription ID, or the ID of the Azure App Service Plan (which is referred to as
serverFarmIdin this code).
A few things to clarify: The
resourceGroupis the name of the resource group in Azure where your web app will be hosted. You need to replace
"..."with the actual resource group name. If you don't already have a resource group, you can create one using the script, but you need to know the region you want to create it in.
serverFarmIdproperty is the Azure Resource Manager ID of an App Service Plan. If you don't already have an App Service Plan, you need to create one (either through the Azure Portal, Azure CLI, or using Pulumi).
Make sure that the Azure AD Application and the Service Principal are in the same Active Directory as your web app.
