Decisions about Azure Active Directory
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Azure Active Directory in their tech stack.
I want to build an Authentication, Authorization, and Token Server. I am only aware of IdentityServer and OpenIddict (apart from IDaaS offerings such as Azure Active Directory and so on...). I'm also thinking to be able to add in support for One-Time Passwords (which would warrant integration with SMS/Email services) and possibly MFA support.
What are the options that I have to be able to build my own Server, based on other stacks?
