Good day friends, in case you don’t remember or are new here than I want to mention that recently I posted an article on "How to integrate ASP.NET Core and Azure Active Directory".

This article belongs to first part of Azure AD from my side. In the second article I am going to show you how we can add or edit existing users or add new users in Azure active directory.


First and most important step for this is that one needs administrator permission to complete this operations at Azure portal. Every person who is the owner of an Azure subscription is also the owner and administrator for: - 1 "default" directory In Azure Active Directory
