  • Go to Azure Active Directory.

    Select Users from the blade

    Click New guest user.

    Add your friend's account.

    Once your friend verifies his/her ID referring to the email received in his/her email inbox, he/she can login to your tenancy, but further permissions to resources, you need to provide.

    Hope this helps.

  • I am reading through this article:

    Properties of an Azure Active Directory B2B collaboration user

    There is no indication in the "invitation" that this user is a "Microsoft Account" user. How does the invitation resolve that login to a "Microsoft account login"?

    Will the invited has an option to login via other identity providers? like Google or Facebook? is that an open list?

    Thanks for your input

  • Azure AD B2B is for a different purpose, ie between organizations/business. And B2C is again another one for social accounts -

    In your case, what I understand is that you are working with normal Azure AD, not Azure SD B2B or B2C.
