Microsoft Entra admin center gives customers an entire toolset to secure access for everyone and everything in multicloud and multiplatform environments. The entire Microsoft Entra product family is available at this new admin center, including Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and Microsoft Entra Permissions Management, formerly known as CloudKnox.
Starting this month, waves of customers will begin to be automatically directed to entra.microsoft.com from Microsoft 365 in place of the Azure AD admin center (aad.portal.azure.com).
You will still be able to complete all your Azure AD management tasks from the Microsoft Entra admin center – all the capabilities are available under the Azure AD tab in the navigation. Also, you’ll be able to return to the Azure AD admin center from a link on the Entra admin center.
When this will happen
We will begin rollout in December 2022 and expect rollout to be completed in March 2023.
How this will affect your organization
During the rollout customers who click the Azure Active Directory links in the Microsoft 365 admin center will now be redirected to the new Entra Admin Center.
What you need to do to prepare
To ensure uninterrupted access to the management experience, you might need to update your firewall rules to allow *.entra.microsoft.com.
The Microsoft Entra admin center is available today at http://entra.microsoft.com, and we encourage you to explore it in preparation for the full migration.
