SQL Server AAD Security Group Admin

I'm having trouble understanding how to login with SMSS when I created an AAD security group as the AAD admin.


I get this error when I try to login with a user and password for a user in that security group, I also tried changing the database but I still get an error.

    Hi @Alex Ip Thank you for posting your question. – it usually occurs when tenant is not reachable or SQL server does not have AAD Admin setup. I was able to reproduce the issue from my end.
    Please check the below

    1. Did you set allow Azure Services and resources to access this server
    2. Add client IP


    Please let me know if that does not help
