    Hello @ATUL PATIL

    Thank you for reaching out. I would like to answer your questions as below:

    • What is difference between Federated domain vs Managed domain in Azure AD?

    A Federated domain in Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a domain that is configured to use federation technologies, such as Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), to authenticate users. A Managed domain, on the other hand, is a domain that is managed by Azure AD and uses Azure AD for authentication.

    • How to identify managed domain in Azure AD?

    You can identify a Managed domain in Azure AD by looking at the domains listed in the Azure AD portal and checking for the "Federated" label is checked or not next to the domain name.

    • What would be password policy take effect for Managed domain in Azure AD? How does Azure AD default password policy take effect and works in Azure environment?

    The password policy for a Managed domain is applied to all user accounts that are created and managed directly in Azure AD. Some of these password policy settings can't be modified, though you can configure custom banned passwords for Azure AD password protection or account lockout parameters. For more details you can refer following documentation: Azure AD password policies.

    I hope this answer helps to resolve your issue.
