Need to bypass MFA for a service Account when Conditional access is applied on entire Azure AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I am facing an issue currently in bypassing the MFA requirement for a service account created . I have conditional access applied over the entire organisation which enforces all the users to use MFA while login. I have a requirement to create a service account with bypassing the MFA for that particular account account. I am unable to find a way to do it. Please share any solution if available.

    Regards

  • You can add the Service Principal to the same MFA Conditional Policy you currently have in place to the "Exclusion List"

    In this part of the document, instead of creating a new policy - Edit the existing policy. Then on Step 8 (that is mentioned), select the Users and then select the Service Principal.
