Microsoft Azure Active Directory SSO Integration

StatusCast allows you to utilize Azure’s AD so that you’re administrators and users don’t need to manage multiple passwords. Please note that at this time StatusCast’s SSO integraton is considered an IDP initiated SSO, so you will still have to manage access restrictions to the administrative portal through StatusCast.

Azure Settings

To setup SSO with StatusCast you will need to first add a new Enterprise Application to your Azure environment under the Azure Active Directory section. The name of the Enterprise Application is not significant to StatusCast. Under the Single sign-on section within your new application, set the SSO mode to SAML-based Sign-on and under the Identifier(Entity ID) and Reply URL fields set both to https://[YOURDOMAIN] Set the User Identifier to user.mail.

There should not be any further configuration required for your enterprise application, however please note that you will need to provide your users in Azure access to this integration through the Users and groups section of your application.
