  • Hi Nakul,

    The Microsoft Graph supports two authentication providers:

    When you decide which authentication provider meets your app's requirements, you need to register your app at that authentication provider's portal. Registering your app establishes your app's identity with the authentication provider, and enables your app to specify its identity when submitting authentication requests from the user.

    After you register your app with the appropriate authentication portal, and have the app registration information (app ID, app secret, if applicable, and redirect URI) that you need to establish your app's identity, you're ready to implement authentication in your app.

    Again, this will vary depending on the type of app you're building, your development platform, the authentication flow you choose, and any specific authentication requirements for your app.
