AzureAD Named locations gets IPv6 Support in the latest preview

Like many others, I supported a userVoice entry that asked for IPv6 support in AzureAD Named Locations.
After a (very) long time without any further feedback, the latest preview now has support for IPv6 in Named locations.

The docs page isn’t updated yet, and please read the statement: Any changes made here will not appear in the old view.

You can turn on the Preview anytime in the AzureAD Admin Center:

AzureAD Named locations
AzureAD Named locations

The AzureAD Named Locations Preview (Please read the statement in the header):

AzureAD Named locations - Preview
AzureAD Named locations – Preview

Here is the IPv6 support:

AzureAD Named locations - IPv6 Support
AzureAD Named locations – IPv6 Support

That really made my day! I do use a lot of IPv6 and I have a partner, who only has IPv6 (His provider doesn’t provide an IPv4 via Dual Stack anymore).

Update:
I did a quick test, the Microsoft Graph API seems to support the new IPv6 address ranges within the Named Locations:

{
   "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.ipNamedLocation",
   "id": "ab81cc2e-9cec-4608-8188-05501824cf6f",
   "displayName": "IPV6TEST",
   "modifiedDateTime": "2020-05-23T00:48:56.6479076Z",
   "createdDateTime": null,
   "isTrusted": true,
   "ipRanges": [
      {
         "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.iPv6CidrRange",
         "cidrAddress": "2003:a:2651:2123::/64"
      },
      {
         "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.iPv6CidrRange",
         "cidrAddress": "2003:a:2651:2100::/64"
      },
      {
         "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.iPv6CidrRange",
         "cidrAddress": "2003:a:2651:2121::/64"
      },
      {
         "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.iPv6CidrRange",
         "cidrAddress": "2003:a:2651:2122::/64"
      }
   ]
}

So instead of #microsoft.graph.iPv4CidrRange you just have to use #microsoft.graph.iPv6CidrRange. That is pretty neat!
