Feature request

The authentication for azure active directory should be fairly similar to the one in office 365 except that the modifications should be as follows.

// azuread.js
'use strict';

exports = module.exports = function (options) {
    options = options || {};
    const tenantId = options.tenant || 'common';

    return {
        protocol: 'oauth2',
        useParamsAuth: true,
        auth: ''+ tenantId +'/oauth2/authorize',
        token: ''+ tenantId +'/oauth2/token',
        scope: ['openid','offline_access', 'profile'],
        profile: function (credentials, params, get, reply) {

            get(''+ tenantId +'/openid/userinfo', null, (profile) => {

                credentials.profile = {
                    id: profile.oid,
                    email: profile.upn,
                    raw: profile
                return reply();

and the example should look something like this

server.auth.strategy('azuread', 'bell', {
      provider: 'azuread',
      password: 'cookie_encryption_password_secure',
      clientId: 'bdXXXXXX-5XXX-4XXX-aXXX-6XXXXXXXX9',
      clientSecret: 'mjXXXXXXXXXXXXXEe+l3XXXXXXXXXXXXkh8=',
      providerParams: {
        response_type: 'code'
      scope: ['openid', 'offline_access', 'profile'],
      isSecure: false

When I try to fix this and use it I receive an error as follows

FATAL CLI ERROR TypeError: Cannot read property 'call' of undefined

I would love to make the patch for this if someone could help me through in patching this.

I've currently put the code I put up above into office365.js and have been successfully able to obtain a successful authentication response as follows for the credentials.profile object

Ok, so looks like Microsoft is trying to standardize their endpoints here with the tenant stuff. I wonder if live has switched to using this type as well. Very confusing to somebody not in their ecosystem.

I wonder why the office365 provider is using for the profile information. Must have some different type of information or they must not have these new endpoints at the time.

Looks like we should have a Microsoft Online provider much like you implemented it. Do you have any insights on what I said above?

We would greatly welcome a PR. BTW, in the meantime you can always make your own custom provider, it does not have to be part of this library. What specifically do you need help with? I am not so sure what your error refers to, without looking at your code. You can fork this repository with github and then commit your code there. I can take a look then.

From a look at their documentation it looks like they're using Azure AD itself for office365 except that in place of a tenant ID it'd become common taking them to the public office 365.

I am not really sure who I can reach out in the office 365 team but i can surely send out a mail and loop them in on this but from the looks of it, it's just a modified version of the azure-ad just a little less complex i.e. doesn't need a tenant ID.

I've sent out the pull request for the azuread module, i'd love some help in enhancing it and writing tests for the same.
