Get started with the trusted authentication service hero sample

Important

This sample is available on GitHub for node.JS and C#.

Overview

Azure Communication Services requires developers to generate user and access token credentials inside of a trusted authentication service. Azure Communication Services is identity-agnostic, to learn more check out our conceptual documentation.

This repository provides a sample of a server implementation of an authentication service for Azure Communication Services. It uses best practices to build a trusted backend service that issues Azure Communication Services credentials and maps them to Azure Active Directory identities.

This sample can help you in the following scenarios:

  • As a developer, you need to enable an authentication flow to generate Azure Communication Services user identities mapped to an Azure Active Directory identity. Using this identity you then will provision access tokens to be used in calling and chat experiences.
  • As a developer, you need to enable an authentication flow for Azure Communication Services support Teams identities, which is done by using an Microsoft 365 Azure Active Directory identity of a Teams' user to fetch an Azure Communication Services token to be able to join Teams calling/chat.

Note

If you are looking to get started with Azure Communication Services, but are still in learning / prototyping phases, check out our quickstarts for getting started with Azure communication services users and access tokens.
