This article contains information about a new authentication framework for Microsoft Office 2016.
By default, Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus (2016 version) uses Azure Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) framework-based authentication. Starting in build 16.0.7967, Office uses Web Account Manager (WAM) for sign-in workflows on Windows builds later than 15000 (Windows Version 1703, build 15063.138).
The Office sign-in workflow stops or shows no on-screen progress. The sign-in window shows a "Signing in" message or a blank authentication screen.
Because of the introduction of WAM, nonsecure endpoints (non-HTTPS) traffic is blocked in authentication workflows.
Make sure that all authentication endpoints follow the HTTPS protocol.
- On Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, or on Windows 10 builds that are earlier than 15000, ADAL authentication is the only option.
- The Windows build should be later than 15000 (Windows Version 1703, build 15063.138, Generally Available). For more information, see Windows 10 release information.
- This article applies if you use Microsoft Federation or non-Microsoft Federation solutions.
