Supporting Azure Active Directory on legacy products

Not at all Steve Ballmer 6 Reputation points

How do I integrate my fancy new Azure Active Directory in older products that only support classic Active Directory? Is there some local service I can install to translate between the two?

    @Not at all Steve Ballmer I would recommend using Azure AD Application proxy to provide SSO for on-premise applications with Azure AD.

    Application Proxy works with:

    • Web applications that use Integrated Windows Authentication for authentication
    • Web applications that use form-based or header-based access
    • Web APIs that you want to expose to rich applications on different devices
    • Applications hosted behind a Remote Desktop Gateway
    • Rich client apps that are integrated with the Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)

    For more details about how it works and implementation

    Azure Active Directory Domain Services (not Azure AD) would be the service to take a look at. This supports services like SharePoint, as one example, where domain user accounts are required.
