Have you seen the new Azure Portal and all the new enhancements? You now should, because there a lot of improvements. This post is about the updates to Enterprise Application management in the new portal. So let’s take a look.

The Azure AD team practically moved many of the Enterprise Application management tools you’re used to using in the Azure classic portal, and added a few new ones, too, including:

1) A brand-new application gallery that supports all your favorite apps, including:

  • Thousands of pre-integrated apps
  • All your own existing apps
  • Newly created, custom-developed, apps

2) A new quick start experience to get you going with a pilot of your newly added apps

3) Support for “bring your own password”-based sign-on apps, including improved auto-detection of sign-in fields and the ability to customize user sign-in field labels

4) “Windows Integrated Authentication” single sign-on mode to support full configuration of on-premises apps through the Application Proxy

5) The ability to configure self-service application access for any application

6) Updated SAML-based sign-on configuration to support the SAML relay state parameter, full customization of SAML token attributes, automatic SAML signing certificate creation, as well as customization of the options and algorithms used to sign the certificate

7) Updated Application proxy experience to support custom app URLs using your own HTTPS certificates
