Getting Started
Azure Ad

Azure AD Provider


Deprecated - Microsoft has rebranded this product Microsoft Entra ID and all support work will be going into that IdP. We recommend you migrate to using that provider as well.



Callback URL

Environment Variables



import NextAuth from "next-auth"
import AzureAd from "next-auth/providers/azure-ad"
export const { handlers, auth, signIn, signOut } = NextAuth({
  providers: [AzureAd],

To allow specific Active Directory users access:

  • In search for “Azure Active Directory”, and select your organization.
  • Next, go to “App Registration” in the left menu, and create a new one.
  • Pay close attention to “Who can use this application or access this API?”
    • This allows you to scope access to specific types of user accounts
    • Only your tenant, all azure tenants, or all azure tenants and public Microsoft accounts (Skype, Xbox,, etc.)
  • When asked for a redirection URL, use or for development http://localhost:3000/api/auth/callback/azure-ad.
  • After your App Registration is created, under “Client Credential” create your Client secret.
  • Click on “API Permissions” and click “Grant admin consent for…” to allow User.Read access to your tenant.
  • Now copy your:
    • Application (client) ID
    • Directory (tenant) ID
    • Client secret (value)

In .env.local create the following entries:

AUTH_AZURE_AD_CLIENT_ID=<copy Application (client) ID here>
AUTH_AZURE_AD_CLIENT_SECRET=<copy generated client secret value here>
AUTH_AZURE_AD_TENANT_ID=<copy the tenant id here>

That will default the tenant to use the common authorization endpoint. For more details see here.

Azure AD returns the profile picture in an ArrayBuffer, instead of just a URL to the image, so our provider converts it to a base64 encoded image string and returns that instead. See: The default image size is 48x48 to avoid running out of space in case the session is saved as a JWT.

In pages/api/auth/[...nextauth].js find or add the AzureAD entries:

import AzureADProvider from "next-auth/providers/azure-ad"
providers: [
    clientId: process.env.AZURE_AD_CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret: process.env.AZURE_AD_CLIENT_SECRET,
    tenantId: process.env.AZURE_AD_TENANT_ID,
