In a move surprising no-one, pieces are being retired from the Azure Classic Portal. In a blog post yesterday, Alex Simons of Microsoft revealed that the Azure Active Directory management experience would be removed from the Classic Portal on November 30 of this year (2017).
This will also impact Azure Information Protection (AIP) and Access Control Service. AIP was formerly known as Rights Management Service (RMS).
For more information, refer to: Marching into the future of the Azure AD admin experience: retiring the Azure classic portal.
The writing has been on the wall about the Classic Portal for quite some time. If you haven’t moved yet, you certainly should be working on the process!
