Register your App

This app comes pre-configured for testing. If you would like to register your own app, please follow the steps below.

To Register an app:

Sign in to the Azure portal using either a work or school account. In the left-hand navigation pane, select the Azure Active Directory blade, and then select App registrations. Click on the New registration button at the top left of the page.

Android Configs

  • Version msal 2.+

For Andriod

  • Integrating with a broker Generate a redirect URI for a broker You must register a redirect URI that is compatible with the broker. The redirect URI for the broker should include your app's package name and the Base64-encoded representation of your app's signature.

The format of the redirect URI is:

msauth://yourpackagename/base64urlencodedsignature

You can use keytool to generate a Base64-encoded signature hash using your app's signing keys, and then use the Azure portal to generate your redirect URI using that hash.

  • Linux and macOS:
keytool -exportcert -alias androiddebugkey -keystore ~/.android/debug.keystore | openssl sha1 -binary | openssl base64
  • Windows
keytool -exportcert -alias androiddebugkey -keystore %HOMEPATH%\.android\debug.keystore | openssl sha1 -binary | openssl base64

iOs Configs

  • Version msal 1.1.22

Configuring MSAL Adding MSAL to your project Register your app in the Azure portal Make sure you register a redirect URI for your application. It should be in the following format:

msauth.$(PRODUCT_BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER)://auth

Add a new keychain group to your project Capabilities. Keychain group should be com.microsoft.adalcache on iOS and com.microsoft.identity.universalstorage on macOS.

See more information about keychain groups and Silent SSO for MSAL.

iOS only steps: Add your application's redirect URI scheme to your Info.plist file

<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
    <dict>
        <key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
        <array>
            <string>msauth.$(PRODUCT_BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER)</string>
        </array>
    </dict>
</array>

Add LSApplicationQueriesSchemes to allow making call to Microsoft Authenticator if installed. Note that "msauthv3" scheme is needed when compiling your app with Xcode 11 and later.

<key>LSApplicationQueriesSchemes</key>
<array>
	<string>msauthv2</string>
	<string>msauthv3</string>
</array>

See more info about configuring redirect uri for MSAL

MacOs Configs

  • Version msal 1.1.22

Add URI scheme in the Info.plist. Redirect URI scheme follows the format msauth.app_bundle_id. Make sure to substitute app_bundle_id with the Bundle Identifier for your application.

<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
  <dict>
    <key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
    <array>
      <string>msauth.[app_bundle_id]</string>
    </array>
  </dict>
</array>
  • Step 2: Configure Xcode project settings Add a new keychain group to your project Signing & Capabilities. The keychain group should be com.microsoft.identity.universalstorage on macOS.
