OAuth 2.0 and Azure Active Directory - error AADSTS90009

Ahamed, Rahim 1 Reputation point

I am trying to use the guide here:


to login a user and request an access token to a custom Azure app service. After login is prompted and I login with my own account and try to request the access token using acquireTokenSilent, I get the AADSTS90009 error. The error mentions an application is requesting a token for itself and that this scenario is supported only if resource is specified using the GUID based App Identifier.

But when I try this same process with an admin account logged in, I can request a token successfully without this error. I'm assuming there is some sort of access or permission that this admin account has. Does anyone have an idea what permission I have to set?
