Configuring Single Sign-On (SSO) with Azure Active Directory

  • Updated

This guide is designed to help you configure Single Sign-On (SSO) for Re-Leased using Azure Active Directory (AD). Single Sign-On is an authentication process that allows users to log in to multiple applications with one set of credentials. This secure and convenient feature simplifies the sign-in process for your team. We will go step-by-step through the setup process. 

Add Re-Leased to Azure Active Directory 

  1. Log in to the Microsoft Azure Portal and navigate to Azure Active Directory > Enterprise Applications blade. 


  2. Click on New Application, then select Create your own application
  3. Choose Integrate any other application you don’t find in the gallery (Non-gallery), name the application Re-Leased, and click Create
  4. Select the Single sign-on blade and choose the SAML option. 

Basic SAML Configuration 

  1. Click Edit under step 1 (Basic SAML Configuration). 
  2. Using the information provided by the Manage Single Sign On page in Re-Leased's settings, input the following:  
    • Re-Leased Audience URI (Service Provider Entity ID) into Azure Identifier (Entity ID) field. 
    • Re-Leased ACS URL into Azure Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL) field. 
    • Re-Leased Sign-on URL into the Azure Sign on URL (Optional) field. 

3. Leave any other fields empty, click Save, and then close the configuration blade.
