Azure AD – A new conditional access App for Office 365 suite

You may be well aware about the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD or AAD) Conditional Access features, and you should already have implemented some conditional access rules to improve your security posture.

That said, when you have to setup a conditional access rule for Office 365 services access (Exchange Online, Teams, PowerApps…) it may be tricky as you had to add individual Office 365 services in your rule; meaning when new services are introduced (latest example Kaizala) you have to update the rule.

Well, good news as the Azure AD team is trying to simplify this process by providing your an overall Office 365 app for setting up conditional access to Office 365 suite.

This ‘new’ Azure AD app is covering the following services:

  • Office 365 Exchange Online
  • Office 365 SharePoint Online
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Office 365 Yammer
  • Office.com
  • Microsoft Forms
  • Microsoft Power Automate (aka Microsoft Flows)
  • Microsoft Planner
  • Microsoft PowerApps

You no longer have to select each individual service.

We can expect that when new Office 365 service becomes available, this will be automatically added to this Office 365 app.

You can already start implementing (or updating your existing CA) by selecting the Office 365 app from the Cloud Apps selector
