What went Generally Available (GA) since Feb 2024

New Public Previews

  • Authentication Flows for Conditional Access: This feature introduces the capability to configure Conditional Access (CA) policies to restrict or block the usage of specific authentication flows. The initial release of this feature is limited to device code flow and authentication transfer.

  • Conditional Access – Require reauthentication every time: A new CA policy option that requires users to interactively reauthenticate—by providing their credentials again—before they access critical applications or take sensitive actions on any resource protected by CA.
