    Microsoft Entra ID (formerly Azure Active Directory) (App Registration) Migration to Microsoft Graph


      Article Summary

      Introduction

      This article explains the transition from using the "Windows Azure Active Directory" API to the "Microsoft Graph" API within an already registered application. 

      The shift is essential because the "Windows Azure Active Directory" has been deprecated. Microsoft has announced that the "Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Graph" will be retired anytime post-June 30, 2023, without any prior notice. 

      Therefore, users are advised to migrate to the Microsoft Graph API to avoid any disruptions.

      Steps

      Please follow the “Configuring the permissions” section in Azure Active Directory (App Registration) - Azure AD.

      After adding the permissions you should have the following permissions defined:

      4. Verify you are able to connect to your Harmony SASE account using your Microsoft Entra ID credentials.

      • To remove the "Windows Azure Active Directory API" permissions, navigate to the “API permissions” screen. Click on the three-dotted menu next to “Azure Active Directory Graph” and choose the “Remove all permissions” option.
