Would you like to build applications that can potentially be used by thousands of Microsoft Cloud Customers? This session shows how to develop applications that integrate with Windows Azure Active Directory using the Graph API, a new RESTful interface for accessing directory data hosted in Windows Azure Active Directory. There is a tremendous opportunity for developers to build new applications that integrate with Windows Azure Active Directory, which is the directory for Windows Azure, Microsoft Office 365, Windows Intune, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and Global Services Monitoring customers. We present the directory data model, and demonstrate how easy and intuitive it is to write an application that connects with Windows Azure Active Directory. We also show integration with single sign-on with Azure Active Directory, and how a Multi-tenant App could be built, and offered to customers. Microsoft .NET, Java, and PHP examples are demonstrated.

    The Discussion

    • User profile image

      Dear Mr. Wu:

      I noticed that you have worked on O365, likely for the iMac too? Perhaps with your expertise you will kindly tell me how to shut down O365, which I've never started, nor am able to subscribe to this service at this time. I know a small question on how to permanently lock down this application from it automatically starting and running in the background may not be a part of your day, but your help is sincerely appreciated, especially since I am unable to install MS Office updates until the application no longer functions.

      My sincere gratitude,

      Lorna Babcock

      Hi Lorna, by O365 "shut down", I assume that you mean disabling or uninstalling the small client application used for authentication?   If yes, then you can uninstall it from your Programs and Features option in the Control Panel.   If you click on "Programs and Features", you'll see all your installed applications - look for one called "Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant", and right-click on it and select "uninstall"   Let me know if this helps you, or if you need additional information.

      Thanks, Ed
