Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service that is used for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications.
It provides software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Azure Functions is a solution that runs on the Microsoft Azure platform and is used to run small pieces of code, or functions, in the cloud. With Azure Functions, you can focus on a specific function without having to focus on the whole application or the infrastructure to run it.
Azure Active Directory (AAD) is useful when you want to control who (users and client applications) can access particular resources (e.g. Microsoft Azure SaaS resources, Office 365 documents and Dynamics 365 installations).
One of Azure Active Directory’s (AAD) use cases is 3rd party client application authenticating through AAD to call the API of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central installation (BC).
