Connecting Vanta & Azure

  • Updated
Note: if you connected Azure to Vanta prior to October 1, 2021, you'll need to reconnect Azure to Vanta to avoid any service interruptions, due to Azure migrating apps from Azure Active Directory Graph to Microsoft Graph. You can find more information about the migration in this article from Microsoft.
