Microsoft Learning: Application types in Microsoft identity

Learn how developers can leverage Microsoft identity in different types of applications.

I work with Microsoft Learning to publish & maintain multiple self-paced learning modules related to Microsoft 365. These modules are primarily used as self-paced study resources for developers preparing to take the MS-600 exam , the only prerequisite to achieve the Microsoft 365 Certified: Teams Application Developer Associate certification. This is one of those modules.

The Microsoft Identity platform enables developers to build many different types of applications to satisfy diverse business requirements and different scenarios. By supporting multiple OAuth 2.0 standard authentication protocols, developers can create different types of applications that meet business needs including single page applications, web apps, mobile or native apps, and services or daemon apps.

In this module, you’ll learn how you can implement different OAuth 2.0 protocol grant types (flows) in popular application types.

Learning objectives

  1. Compare and contrast different grant types (flows) in the OAuth 2.0 protocol
  2. Evaluate which authentication protocol to use based on the app scenario
  3. Implement different authentication protocols in different application types
