July 17, 2023

SecureAuth customer announcement in Zendesk: Critical update for SecureAuth IdP Customers leveraging Azure AD as a data store

Recap of customer announcement

Microsoft announced plans to retire Azure AD Graph API on June 30, 2023, in favor of Microsoft Graph API. On June 15, 2023, Microsoft made another announcement that the Azure AD Graph API will be non-supported.

This impacts all applications configured in the Classic Experience that use the Azure AD data store. They may cease to function at a later date based on Microsoft's timeline. For more information, see this KB article from Microsoft:

This applies to any SecureAuth® Identity Platform release that has an integrated Azure AD data store in the Advanced Settings (formerly Classic Experience).

If you are on the Identity Platform release 22.02 or later and have Azure AD configured in the New Experience, no action is needed from you.
