  • Hello All


    I would like to get the Difference between Azure AD App Registration and Enterprise Application in terms of registrering a non marketplace app to Azure AD for SSO based authentication. I would like to integrate one of our application running on google cloud to azure AD for SSO authentication.

  • In gallery, there are many apps which are published by their companies. Enterprise apps are apps that are deployed and used within your organization and you can manage single sign-on settings for them by azure portal. If your you want to add your own app and integrate it with Azure AD, you need to register the app in App registrations. Also, if you grant permissions to your App, it will occurs in Enterprise applications. If your app is added from gallery, you cannot configure the Reply URL. You can only configure your own app in Application registrations.

    The enterprise applications blade represents Service Principals, rather than applications. A Service Principal can be thought of as an instantiation of your application into the tenant. In the example of multi-tenancy, you as an app developer may register an application, then have multiple tenants sign in & consent to the app. At that point, each of those tenants will get a Service Principal provisioned into their tenant and it will show up in the Enterprise Apps section. To prompt a Service Principal to be provisioned in the same tenant as the app registration, you simply need to complete a sign in request and consent to the application. It should show up after that.
