I'm also looking for a guide on setting up Azure AD authentication for FortiClient VPN with version 7.2.4. If anyone has any tips or resources, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

hm you could set up ldaps authentication connector and use that to auth users on your VPN.

Works fine with AD but unsure about Azure.

We use a FortiAuthenticator to do ldaps/kerberos auth on azure and provide a radius backend to our FGT for VPN authentication.
