Conditional Access with Azure Registered App

Is there a way to restrict access to an Azure AD registered application based on IP address or location when the said application is using a client secret because of its use as a Windows Service for example. so no underlying user to pass credentials?

This would mean there is no username passed to Azure AD in order to evaluate against a conditional access policy?

Has anyone else seen this scenario or have a solution for it? is there even a solution?

    @Jamie Brandwood Conditional access policy cannot be applied if you are requesting token under application context i.e., using client credentials.
