Azure AD’s consent framework makes it easy to develop multi-tenant Web and Native client applications that need to access Web APIs secured by an Azure AD tenant, different from the one where the client application is registered.

These Web APIs include the Graph API, Office 365, and other Microsoft services, in addition to your own Web APIs.

Enterprise developers and software-as-a-service (Saa S) providers can develop commercial cloud services or line of business applications that can be integrated with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to provide secure sign in and authorization for their services.

To integrate an application or service with Azure AD, a developer must first register the details about their application with Azure AD through the Azure classic portal.

This article shows you how to add, update, or remove an application in Azure AD.

You will learn about the different types of applications that can be integrated with Azure AD, how to configure your applications to access other resources such as Web APIs, and more.

If your application needs access to a Web API, or you want to enable your application as multi-tenant to allow users from other Azure AD tenants to access it, you’ll need to continue reading the Updating an Application section to continue configuring your application.

Once your application has been registered with Azure AD, it may need to be updated to provide access to Web APIs, be made available in other organizations, and more.
