A number of cloud-based Microsoft products are currently experiencing issues, apparently due to a Azure Active Directory issue. In the last hour or so, many users have been unable to access Microsoft Teams, with the company’s 365 Status Twitter account tie it a recent modification of an authentication system.
The bad news is that the list of services concerned is long – including not only Teams, but also Office, Exchange Online, and Yammer. Xbox Live is also mentioned as one of the services having issues, but its status page only reports an issue for anyone trying to redeem a code at this time.
The latest update at 5:17 p.m. ET says a full fix is expected in the next 60 minutes, so if your office uses Teams, you know when to re-register.
We are currently deploying mitigation worldwide. Customers should start to see recovery at this time, and we expect a full fix within 60 minutes. Additional information can be found at https://t.co/AEUj8uAGXl or under MO244568 if available.
