About this sample

Scenario

You have a daemon application and you want it to consume Microsoft Graph or your own Web Api using Microsoft Identity Platform to acquire tokens.

Structure of the repository

This repository contains a progressive tutorial made of two parts:

Sub folder Description
1-Call-Graph This sample application shows how to use the Microsoft identity platform endpoint to access the data of Microsoft business customers in a long-running, non-interactive process. It uses the OAuth 2 client credentials grant to acquire an access token, which can be used to call the Microsoft Graph and access organizational data

Topology
2-Call-OwnApi This sample application shows how to use the Microsoft identity platform to access the data from a protected Web API, in a non-interactive process. It uses the OAuth 2 client credentials grant to acquire an access token, which is then used to call the Web API. Additionally, it lays down all the steps developers need to take to secure their Web APIs with the Microsoft identity platform.

Topology
3-Using-KeyVault This documentation explains how to integrate Key Vault and MSI with a daemon application. Additionally, it has a code snippet on how to get an access token for Key Vault.

How to run this sample

To run this sample, you'll need:

  • Visual Studio 2019 or just the .NET Core SDK
  • An Internet connection
  • A Windows machine (necessary if you want to run the app on Windows)
  • An OS X machine (necessary if you want to run the app on Mac)
  • A Linux machine (necessary if you want to run the app on Linux)
  • An Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) tenant. For more information on how to get an Azure AD tenant, see How to get an Azure AD tenant
  • A user account in your Azure AD tenant. This sample will not work with a Microsoft account (formerly Windows Live account). Therefore, if you signed in to the Azure portal with a Microsoft account and have never created a user account in your directory before, you need to do that now.

Step 1: Clone or download this repository

From your shell or command line:

git clone https://github.com/Azure-Samples/active-directory-dotnetcore-daemon-v2.git

or download and exact the repository .zip file.

Given that the name of the sample is pretty long, and so are the name of the referenced NuGet packages, you might want to clone it in a folder close to the root of your hard drive, to avoid file size limitations on Windows.
