service account in Azure

Arif Usman 421 Reputation points

Question about service account in Azure AD. I have MFA enable. I need an account to run my Microsoft flow (to create Azure user account and add user to Azure SG group). Issue is when I create AAD account, it uses MFA. What is the best way to create account in AAD (no on premise AD) account so I can use in Microsoft Flow connection.

    Hi Usarif,
    Keep in mind flow is a user based service, perhaps also look at logic apps or azure runbooks.
    However, You can exclude that specific account from MFA, or if you log in to flow manually with the service account under MFA and recreate any connections, that should also allow the flow to work.

    Depends on how you are enforcing MFA. If via the "traditional" experience, go to the MFA portal and change the user settings. If via Conditional access policy/security defaults, exclude the user from the policy.
