Passport strategy for authenticating with Azure AD using the OAuth 2.0 protocol.


$ npm install passport-azure-ad-oauth2


Configure Strategy

The Azure AD OAuth 2.0 authentication strategy authenticates requests by delegating to Azure AD using the OAuth 2.0 protocol.

Applications must supply a verify callback which accepts an accessToken, refresh_token, params and service-specific profile, and then calls the done callback supplying a user, which should be set to false if the credentials are not valid. If an exception occured, err should be set.

  • clientID: specifies the client id of the application that is registered in Azure Active Directory.
  • clientSecret: secret used to establish ownership of the client Id.
  • callbackURL: URL to which Azure AD will redirect the user after obtaining authorization.
  • resource: [optional] the App ID URI of the web API (secured resource).
  • tenant: [optional] tenant domain (e.g.:
  • useCommonEndpoint: [optional] use "" instead of default endpoint ({tenant}). This is typically enabled if you're using this for a Multi-tenant application in Azure AD (Default: false).
passport.use(new AzureAdOAuth2Strategy({
  clientID: '{YOUR_CLIENT_ID}',
  clientSecret: '{YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET}',
  callbackURL: '',
  resource: '00000002-0000-0000-c000-000000000000',
  tenant: ''
function (accessToken, refresh_token, params, profile, done) {
  var waadProfile = profile || jwt.decode(params.id_token, '', true);
  User.findOrCreate({ id: waadProfile.upn }, function (err, user) {
    done(err, user);

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'azure_ad_oauth2' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

  passport.authenticate('azure_ad_oauth2', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function (req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home. 


$ npm install
$ npm test
