Never manually change your Social Media password again with Azure AD automated password roll-over

Joe Kuster

It’s been said that the only way to keep a secret is if you tell no one, including yourself. Building on their existing success with single sign-on for social media, Azure AD now can automatically provide the same convenience of only having to log into your corporate identity while automatically rolling over secure passwords for your corporate social media accounts – usually one of the most vulnerable (and sought after) accounts.

To use it, just assign an application such as Facebook, Twitter or Linked in to a user, selecting the option to provide the credentials for them.

Next choose your frequency of password roll over.

Presto: Two clicks and you’ve enhanced your social media security. The single sign-on capability will automatically update your users access as needed.

When adding applications to the MyApps portal within Azure AD Premium, you will now notice a new Attributes tab. Under this tap you can modify the Active Directory field mapping to the destination application. Additionally, the new scoping allows for more dynamic filtering without creating numerous AD security groups. Good Job MS, Keep it up! #EMS #EnterpriseMobility
