Identity Guidance for Azure Government Apps Now Available!

Getting identity right is important. On the Azure Government engineering team we receive a lot of questions about how to enable identity in an Azure Government application.

We recently released Planning identity for Azure Government applications; which serves as the first of many upcoming articles that cover key scenarios for Azure Government applications. In this article we set the foundation by covering questions such as:

  • Can I use an identity from Azure commercial to sign-in to an Azure Government application?
  • What are the considerations for selecting the Identity Authority for my Azure Government application?
  • How do I identity if I have an Azure Government tenant?

Feedback is highly encouraged! Specifically, if you have identity scenarios you'd like us to cover please post a comment or email us at

In the meantime go build some Azure Government applications, see what you can do, and let us know what else you'd like to see us cover!

We welcome your comments and suggestions to help us continually improve your Azure Government experience.

    I was trying to send feed backup to and got Undeliverable: Azure Gov AD.

    We have both Azure Com and Gov. Our Com has our Agency AD synced as well of Office 365 Com. We want to use the AD from Com in Gov. So far that has not been and option but based on the article it sounds like it could be available soon. We are hoping to use our onprem AD that is currently synced with AZ Com for Az Gov.

    1. Hi Jerry, it looks like your message did come through. The scenario you mention is definitely becoming a frequent ask and we’re currently looking into that. Be sure to check back to the planning identity for Azure Government apps article for any updates.
