Hi @Nitish Kumar Mehta

To authenticate GitHub Copilot with Azure AD, you can follow these steps:

1. Register an Application in Azure AD:
- Sign in to the Azure portal (
- Navigate to Azure Active Directory.
- Go to "App registrations" and click on "New registration".
- Enter a name for your application and specify the supported account types.
- After registration, note down the Application (client) ID and Tenant ID.

2. Configure Authentication Settings:
- In the Azure portal, go to "Authentication" under the application settings.
- Add a new platform and select "Web".
- Enter the redirect URI (e.g., https://localhost:3000/callback) for your application.
- Save the configuration.

3. Grant API Permissions:
- Go to "API permissions" under the application settings.
- Click on "Add a permission" and select the required permissions.
- For GitHub Copilot, you may need permissions related to accessing repositories or other resources.

4. Configure GitHub Copilot:
- Open GitHub Copilot in your IDE.
- Go to settings or preferences and find the authentication section.
- Choose the option to authenticate with Azure AD.
- Enter the Application ID, Tenant ID, and any other required credentials (such as client secret if applicable).
- Save the configuration.

5. Authenticate:
- Once configured, GitHub Copilot will prompt you to authenticate with Azure AD.
- Follow the authentication flow, which may include signing in with your Azure AD credentials and granting permissions to the application.
- After successful authentication, GitHub Copilot will be authenticated with Azure AD, and you can start using it with your repositories.

Hope this can help.
