How to register SharePoint app on the new Azure AD Portal


We used the azure management portal (classic portal) in the past to register SharePoint apps in the Azure AD, but this can be done now in the new Azure Portal UI as well.
Here is one minute guide on how to register SharePoint app on the new Azure AD Portal.

Prerequisites


- You have to be Azure Active Directory Administrator.

- Once you've completed registration, Azure AD will assign your application a unique client identifier, the Application ID (Client ID).

After saving the key, the value of the key is displayed. Copy this value because you are not able to retrieve the key later. You provide the key value with the application ID to log in as the application. Store the key value where your application can retrieve it.

Tenant Id is required to get the access token. To get the tenant ID, select Properties for your Active Directory. Copy the Directory ID.
Here is a link on how to find the tenant id.
