Azure AD Free Tier - SSO for external apps

Kévin Michelet 1 Reputation point


I'm currently using Azure AD, having a mix of users with a free plan and users having a O365 subscription.

In the near future, we're going to implement and host some apps on a web server (Nextcloud, and some custom business applications) and we would like to use Azure AD to allow SSO authentication on those apps.

Can "Free" plan users be authenticated on a custom webapp with Azure AD (i.e. non gallery apps) ? The pricing page is not super clear about this. Is there any particular requirement for this setup to work ?

Thanks in advance

    Hi @Kévin Michelet , this page details the different subscription types and what they include. Are you confused about the "External Identities" pricing? These are priced per-user. Everything you mentioned is included with the free subscription but you'd have to pay extra for the external identities. Please let me know what questions you have and I can help you further!
