Modern Authentication is the term Microsoft uses to refer to its implementation of the OAuth 2.0 authorization framework for client/server authentication. Modern Authentication leverages standard authentication libraries to enable applications to support single sign-on (SSO) features like 2FA/MFA and to use access and refresh tokens to validate authentication requests.
This KB article provides step-by-step instructions to add Microsoft Modern Authentication to any Android or iOS app without code or coding.
Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform designed to add security features in mobile apps.
Appdome’s no-code mobile app security platform offers mobile developers, DevSec and security professionals a convenient and reliable way to protect Android and iOS apps without coding. When a user clicks “Build My App,” Appdome leverages a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of security plugins, and an adaptive code generation engine that matches the correct required plugins to the development environment, frameworks, and methods in each app.
Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites to build secured apps. There is no SDK and no library to manually code or implement in the app. The Appdome technology adds the relevant standards, frameworks, stores, and logic to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.
Likewise, there are no required infrastructure changes and no dependency on SAML, OAuth, OpenID Connect or any other authentication standard inside the app. Users merely upload mobile apps, select the Mobile Enterprise Authentication by Appdome service and click “Build My App.” The Appdome technology adds Modern Authentication and relevant standards, frameworks and more to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.
The following diagram illustrates the Single-Sign-On flow for apps that have been integrated with Modern Authentication (OAuth2).
In order to use Appdome’s no code implementation of Microsoft Modern Authentication authentication, you’ll need:
The technology behind Build My App has two major elements – (1) a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of code sets needed for mobile integrations, and (2) an adaptive code generation engine that can recognize the development environment, frameworks and methods in each app and match the app to the relevant code-sets needed to add Modern Authentication to the mobile app in seconds. For example, the technology of Open-ID Connect and Webview authentication, work that ordinarily a developer would need to do.
Congratulations! You now have a mobile app fully integrated with Modern Authentication.
After you have added Modern Authentication to any Mobile App on Appdome, there are a few additional steps needed to complete your mobile integration project.

That is it – Enjoy your newly integrated mobile app!
Appdome provides additional alternatives for No Code Microsoft Authentication in Mobile Apps. Appdome also has other no code implementations for MicroVPN and enterprise mobility, all of which can be combined with Modern Authentication on Appdome.
