If you're developing with Power BI embedding and targeting external users, you have the flexibility to choose whichever identity provider you'd like to authenticate users and to manage user identity. Azure AD B2C provides a great option because it makes it possible for users to signup using an existing user account while also supporting users that would rather create a new local account during the Azure AD B2C signup process.
Azure AD B2C makes it relatively easy to federate user accounts from other popular social identity providers such as Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Live.com. Azure AD B2C also makes it possible to support user signup and sign in using organizational accounts from Azure AD tenants. What's more, Azure AD B2C provides rich self-service registration features including email verification and password reset which enables any user with a valid email address to seamlessly signup as a user.
This session walks through creating a new Azure AD B2C tenant and configuring it with user flows and custom policies to support user signup, sign in, profile update and password reset. Campers will learn how to program with the Microsoft Authentication Library (msal-browser.js) to acquire tokens from an Azure AD B2C authority. Along the way, campers will also learn how to manage B2C user accounts with the Microsoft Graph API and how to integrate API connectors with Azure AD B2C policies using Azure functions.
What Campers Will Learn:
- Understanding Azure AD B2C Architecture
- Building and Testing User Flows
- Acquiring tokens from Azure AD B2C using msal-browser.js
- Developing Custom Policies using Visual Studio Code
- Using Azure functions to implement and deploy API Connectors
- Managing B2C User Accounts using Microsoft Graph API
It is recommended that campers have experience developing with Power BI embedding and working with the App-Owns-Data Starter Kit.
