URL Authorization Rules in App Service
Friday, November 18, 2016
We’re happy to announce the initial preview of URL Authorization Rules in Azure App Service.
One of the goals of Azure App Service Authentication / Authorization is to make it easy to add “auth” to your App Service apps (which is why we often refer to it as Easy Auth). Most of our investments so far have focused on creating a streamlined authentication setup experience. However, until now, authorization was something developers had to implement mostly on their own. Typically, authorization rules involve restricting access to certain resources within your app. Ideally, such authorization rules can be just as simple to set up without writing a bunch of custom code.
Read more on how to implement these new authorization rules in our team blog.
