GitHub Identity support for Azure
Posted on Monday, May 6, 2019
GitHub users now can sign into Microsoft applications, including Azure Portal and Azure DevOps using their GitHub account. This update enables developers to go from repository to deployment with just their GitHub account. The new login system will try to match a user’s GitHub account to an existing Microsoft identity with access to Azure. If the system can’t find one, it creates one for the user that's keyed to their GitHub account, providing a seamless login experience.
