OpenID Connect and Entra ID

Describes OpenID Connect and Entra ID to manage the sign-in of users to the front-end site in Optimizely Content Management System (CMS) and Optimizely Customized Commerce.

Entra ID  (formerly Azure AD) is Microsoft's multi-tenant cloud-based directory and identity management service. Entra ID provides single sign-on (SSO) access to many cloud-based SaaS applications, and includes a full suite of identity management capabilities.

OAuth is an open standard for authorization used by Entra ID. OpenID Connect is built on top of OAuth and extends it. You can use OpenID Connect as an authentication protocol rather than just an authorization protocol.

See Integrate Entra ID using OpenID Connect how to configure and integrate this for your solution.
