OLE DB Driver 18.3 for SQL Server was released this week, bringing additional Azure Active Directory authentication methods directly into the driver.
- Added support for additional Azure Active Directory authentication methods: ActiveDirectoryInteractive and ActiveDirectoryMSI (See Using Azure Active Directory)
Note: ActiveDirectoryInteractive supports Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) flows.
- Embedded Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL). A separate installation of ADAL is no longer required to use certain authentication methods.
