Is it possible to make a call to an azure app service inside a vnet from azure ad b2c ?

We have our Azure AD B2C custom policy that uses a utilities hosted as a Web App locked inside a VNET. We are not yet there in a position to validate, but curious to know whether it would work beforehand? Is it supported that Azure AD B2C custom policy when refers or make a call to an App service inside a VNET, would really work? If not, or yes, in either cases, what must be taken into consideration?

    @Rishi Verma • Thank you for reaching out.

    Unfortunately, if the Web App can only be accessed via routing the request through VNet, you will not be able to call that web app/API via B2C. I assume that the B2C custom policy will make a REST call to the Web App via RESTful technical profile, in case of which the request is directly made via the internet and the API must be publicly accessible. You will have to secure the API by implementing authentication for API. You can then acquire the token via RESTful TP as mentioned in this XML snippet and pass that token in the authorization header to call the API.
