Access SharePoint Online site with External users(gmail.yahoo)

    Question

  • Dear All,

    I want to Share my SharePoint online site to external users , so I created a site collection and enabled external sharing.  

    I am sharing the site to gmail and Microsoft account(hotmail), MS account directly access the site no need to register Microsoft account because it is MS account. But gmail account required to register MS account using default Microsoft registration page. Once I register my gmail to MS account I am able to access the site.

    My question is , I want change the default Microsoft page to My custom registration page. Is it possible to write any custom code using Microsoft API ?

    Please share any links ?

    Regards,

    Tamil.

  • Hi,

    Yes, you need to fill out the form if you want to sign in SharePoint online site using gmail account.

    Microsoft released a solution, it is called Azure Active Directory B2C. It offers connecting 3rd party accounts (include gmail account) to the an AD. All major 3rd party accounts can become Microsoft accounts this way.

    Active Directory B2C Documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/active-directory-b2c/
