Create an Azure Active Directory App registration

This step is optional and not required if your Remote Desktop Manager version is 2022.1 and higher.

To be able to use the Active Directory Interactive (with MFA Support) authentication method in Remote Desktop Manager, a new app registration needs to be registered in the Microsoft Azure SQL console (Azure Active Directory) with the appropriate API permissions.

Settings

  1. Login on Azure Portal.
  2. In the Azure Active Directory section, select App registrations and then New registration.

  3. Configure the Name.
    RDMWin2230
  4. Select the Supported account types.
    RDMWin2231
  5. Configure the Redirect URI as indicated below and click Register.

The Redirect URI setting MUST be configured Public client/native (mobile & desktop).

In our example the Redirect URI is set to https://mycompany.com, but we suggest you personalize it to the domain of your company home page. This will be necessary in the authentication step of Configure Remote Desktop Manager Active Directory Interactive (with MFA).
