Before you start...
Make sure you've spoken with your technical account manager to determine which authentication provider best fits your needs. Your TAM will also give you two pieces of information that you will need before you start: the Sign-On URL and the AppID.
Azure AD Configuration
Now you're ready to set up your Azure AD authentication application!
Open the Azure portal
Click on Active Directory, which will open in a new window. Click on Applications.
At the bottom of the page, click Add:
Click "application my organization is developing"
Name the application. For the application type, select "WEB APPLICATION AND/OR WEB API"
Enter the Sign-On URL and the AppID that your TAM gave you. Be careful - it's important to get these exactly right!
Continue through the final steps until the application is created
Click on Application, then Configure
At the bottom, click View Endpoints
11. You will see a link to the "FEDERATION METADATA DOCUMENT." Please send this link to your TAM or to firstname.lastname@example.org! If you prefer, you can also send us the entire metadata file instead of sending a link to the hosted file.
12. Assign users to the application using these guidelines from Azure AD.
Don't forget to send us your Federation Metadata Document! Once we have that, we can get everything hooked up on our side. We will work with you to plan a time to switch over to the new authentication flow and have someone on your team validate that everything is working properly.
