Local development with Azure Services, specifically Azure AD

Wayne Gibson 31 Reputation points

For local development of AWS services with Java services, for which I currently use https://github.com/localstack/localstack.

But I'm now looking for something similar for Azure AD, but as of yet haven't come across anything. Has anybody come across anything that could be used ?

    @Wayne Gibson AFAIK, there isn't a LocalStack equivalent for Azure, but there are emulators/tools for specific Azure services that let you simulate the experience for local development and testing.

    For example, there is Azure Storage Emulator for Azure Blob, Queue and Table services, and Azure Functions Core Tools for running and debugging Azure Functions locally. Here is a related thread that discusses similar ideas.
