New features within Flow

Microsoft Flow, PowerApps and SharePoint are rapidly evolving and gaining ground in companies.

If you are not already familiar with PowerApps, I would definitely recommend taking a look at it. With the latest update to Flow it has become even easier to work with, with conditions (And/Or statements) as the have got a good boost!

Use the new advanced conditioner builder as point and click UI, or dig into JSON codes with the peek code action.

Enforce Azure Multi-Factor Authentication for external access

I have seen many that are confused about MFA and Conditional Access and how they work together, so the purpose of this guide is to require Azure Multi-Factor Authentication for Office 365 webmail and SharePoint from external networks (all other networks than corporate network) with Conditional Access:

Create a conditional access policy that requires MFA

  • Sign-in to the Azure portal and browse to Azure Active Directory -> Conditional access
  • On the Conditional Access page, select New policy
  • Type a name for the policy ex. “Require MFA for external mail and file access
  • In the Assignments section:
    • Choose Users and groups -> select Users and groups -> Users and groups, find and select a group of users for testing purpose -> Done
    • Choose Cloud apps -> Select apps -> Find and select Office 365 Exchange Online and Office 365 SharePoint Online in the list -> Done
    • Choose Conditions -> Device platform -> Set configure to Yes -> Select All platforms (including unsupported) in ‘Include’ -> Done
    • Choose Conditions -> Locations -> Set configure to Yes -> Select Any location in ‘Include’ and All trusted locations in ‘Exclude’ -> Done
    • Choose Conditions -> Client apps (preview) -> Set configure to Yes -> Done
    • Click Done
  • In the Access controls section:
    • Choose Grant -> Select Grant access -> Select Require multi-factor authentication -> Select
  • Set Enable policy to On
  • Click Create

Create trusted locations

As we only want to enforce MFA for only external access, we need to create some trusted locations. Trusted locations can either be IP ranges or Countries and/or Regions. In this guide I will choose IP ranges for testing purpose.

  • In to the Azure portal browse to Azure Active Directory -> Conditional access
  • On the Conditional Access page, select Named locations
  • Click on New location
  • Type a Name and IP ranges for your offices
  • Select Mark as trusted location
  • Click Create

All done – next time you’re trying to access SharePoint from an untrusted location, you’ll be prompted for MFA.
