During the configuration of DS Service with Active Directory in O365 (Azure AD), we need to create an application registration with rights to read Active Directory objects in your O365 tenant.
Create Azure app for use of Workspace
1. Log on Azure portal with your Azure account.
2. If your account gives you access to more than one, click your account in the top right corner, and set your portal session to the desired Azure AD tenant.
3. In the left-hand navigation pane, click the Azure Active Directory service (if it absent, click on All services and find it by name), click App registrations → New registration.
4. When the Register an application page appears, enter your application's registration information:
- Name: Enter DSService.MachineName (or any name you want).
Note: Name of the web app must not include spaces or digits.
- Supported account types: Select ‘Accounts in this organizational directory only’.
5. When finished, click Register. You are presented with the details of the app that you created. Copy the Application (client) ID for later use:
6. Go to Authentication to add properties for 3 platforms: Single-page application, iOS/macOS and Android.
a. In Web platform, add an URI with the following format: https://[YourDomainName]/DigitalSignService/Admin/LoginWithSSOCallback

Click [Configure] --> [Done].
7. In Authentication, select No for Allow public client flows, then click [Save]:
8. Go to Certificates & secrets → New client secret (key)
