Is it possible to create login with Azure Active Directory (AD) in shinyapps.io?

Here in our company, we have the 99$ standard plan of shinyapps.io, which has been really useful to us. However, a new IT requeriment is that logins need to be based on the Azure Active Directory from the company.

I have found this tutorial https://auth0.com/blog/adding-authentication-to-shiny-open-source-edition/ for shiny open source server, but I was looking for any tutorial on guidance to create a login with Azure AD in a shinyapps.io app (or is it even possible?)

It is not currently possible, but I will share with the team for future consideration.

The AzureAuth package handles AAD authentication, and can be integrated into a Shiny app. See the vignette here: https://cloud.r-project.org/package=AzureAuth/vignettes/shiny.html

Hi Hong, is it possible too if the app is hosted en shinyapps.io? I ask because configurations are sometimes limited.

I haven't used shinyapps.io, but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work. If you run into problems, you can post another question here or open an issue at the AzureAuth repo.
