    Azure authentication


    by Jctech2025 ·

    Hi All,

    I created a new account on Windows 10 by selecting “Access Work or School Account”. I’m noticing that I am unable to authenticate and login to the machine using the newly created account. The machine is not AD joined. Does a machine have to be Azure AD joined to login using an Azure account? I’m somewhat rusty on this topic.

      In reply to Azure authentication tells what it means and how it works. That’s not what you want.

      An account to login with on your PC/laptop is a “local account”. explains how to create it. Although they say it’s meant for “Family and other users” there is absolutely nothing that makes that you can’t use it yourself.

      You can even delete the account on your PC that’s linked to your Microsoft account if you made that when installing Windows 10, if you prefer not to use it.
      Microsoft somewhat hid the option to make only a local account when installing Windows 10 (and they even made it impossible in Windows 11 where a Microsoft account is necessary during the initial setup).

      It has nothing to do with Azure.

      Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, offers various methods for authentication and identity management. Here are some of the key aspects and methods related to Azure authentication:

      Azure Active Directory (Azure AD): Azure AD is Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service. It allows you to manage user identities and control access to Azure resources, Microsoft 365, and other applications. Key features of Azure AD include:

      Single Sign-On (SSO): Users can sign in once with their Azure AD credentials and access multiple applications without needing to re-enter their credentials.

      Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Provides an extra layer of security by requiring additional verification steps, such as a text message or app notification, in addition to a password.

      Conditional Access: Allows you to set policies that control access to resources based on conditions like location, device, or user risk.

      Azure Identity Services: Azure provides various identity services, including Azure B2C (Business-to-Consumer) and Azure B2B (Business-to-Business), which cater to different identity scenarios:

      Azure B2C: Designed for applications that require identity and access management for customers or external users. It supports social identity providers, such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft accounts.

      Azure B2B: Enables collaboration with external partners by allowing them to access your resources using their own organizational identities.

      Service Principals: In Azure, service principals represent applications or services that need to access resources. You can create and configure service principals with specific permissions to interact with Azure resources programmatically. This is commonly used in automation and scripting scenarios.

        Your answer really has nothing to do with the question from the OP, I think. Why did you post it?
