Microsoft is retiring the Azure classic portal
Since we announced General Availability of the new Azure AD admin center in May, it’s been used by over 800,000 users from 500,000 organizations in almost every country in the world. The new admin center is the future for administration of Azure AD.
For over a year, we’ve been listening to your feedback and working to improve the new portal and the new experience. And we’ve heard you loud and clear that we have too many portals, that you want a single place where you can manage identity and access for your organization. So, on November 30, we’ll be retiring the Azure AD admin experience in the classic Azure portal.
Moving all admin capabilities to the new admin center and retiring our classic portal experience is a key milestone in our efforts to simplify the admin experience for Azure AD.
Azure AD admin center: the present and future for Azure AD administration
Now, the Azure AD admin center is where you can go to find admin experiences for the latest and greatest Azure AD capabilities. By focusing on the Azure AD admin center, we can make our admin experiences more consistent, and easier to use. And we can deliver them faster.
At the moment, there are a few tasks that can still only be done in the classic Azure portal. Don’t worry, these capabilities will be added to our new admin experience in the next few weeks, well before November 30.
