Today was officially announced by the Azure AD Team that customizing user flows with Azure AD B2C is now easier than ever with more features, including the general availability of a new portal experience and custom password complexity option. And there are some new features in public preview that you should try them today, such as:
- User templates—Create beautiful authentication experiences using default templates as a starting point for your branded UI.
- Identity provider access token passthrough—Send the access token from social identity providers back to the application.
So let’s take a look at them.
New portal experience
Now it’s really easy to create a user flow in Azure B2C. If you want to try the new UI, you should go to the Azure Portal, and then go to the Azure AD B2C extension. Ensure you’re in your B2C directory and select User flows from the left-hand menu:
Custom Password Complexity (really a nice one!)
You can use this feature to lower password requirements or increase the password complexity required to meet your compliance guidelines. Whatever requirement you enforce, you can help your users by having error messages that dynamically change as requirements are met. By default, password complexity is set to Strong for all newly created user flows.
New user templates
You can easily customize what the users will see when they sign in, by creating beautiful sign in and sign up experiences.
Identity Provider Access Token Passthrough in Public Preview
When a user signs in using an identity provider, like Facebook, your application can get the identity provider’s access token passed through as part of the Azure AD B2C token. You will be able to use this access token to call the identity provider’s API, such as the Facebook Graph API.
