How do you configure Azure Kubernetes Service to use Azure Active Directory for user authentication?

Answer

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) can be configured to use Azure Active Directory (AD) for user authentication.

You can log into an AKS cluster using an Azure AD authentication token. Cluster operators can also configure Kubernetes role-based access control (Kubernetes RBAC) based on a user's identity or directory group membership.

Azure AD authentication is provided to AKS clusters with OpenID Connect. OpenID Connect is an identity layer built on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol.

To integrate with AKS, you create and use an Azure AD application that acts as an endpoint for the identity requests. The first Azure AD application you need gets Azure AD group membership for a user.
