Some welcome additions to the Admin consent workflow in Azure AD

In February this year, I wrote an article about Admin consent in Azure Active Directory. The article titled: “Did you already modify your Azure AD consent defaults settings? Here is why you should“, explained why giving end-users within your Azure AD the ability to give consent for every Application might not be such a good idea.

While disabling this option for the end-users is recommended by Microsoft, and having a workflow in place to review any requests and approve if found valid is a more secure solution it introduced an administrative burden since each request must be reviewed by one of the defined users in the list of users to review admin consent requests.

In order to address this, Microsoft made some changes to the way the Admin consent workflow is working which allows an Azure AD administrator more control over which requests must be approved and which are allowed automatically.

Note: This post reflects the status of Admin consent as of May 22, 2020. Functionality may change, even right after this post has been published.
