Configure single sign-on using Azure AD

This feature is only available on our Enterprise plan. Contact sales for more information.

Before you begin, make sure you have an Admin account (Viewer or Contributor)

Step 1: Configure SAML 2.0 for Abstract in Azure AD

  1. You can integrate Abstract with Azure AD directly from Microsoft’s Marketplace.
  2. While in Azure AD, locate and record your Metadata URL and Entity ID.

If needed, Microsoft offers additional help documentation for configuring Abstract.

Step 2: Set up SAML single sign-on in Abstract.

  1. Open the Abstract app (desktop or web).
  2. In the left side pane, click on the organization name.
  3. From the dropdown, select Organization Settings.
  4. Select the Permissions tab.
  5. In the Configure SSO section, enter the Metadata URL and Entity ID you recorded from Azure AD.
  6. Enter any manual exceptions you might have. Emails listed in the manual exceptions section bypass SSO and can log in with email and password.
  7. Click Test with my Account.
    Note: You may see an error message if one or more users are in multiple Abstract Organizations. Ask those users to either leave their other Organizations or create a new account with their company email.
  8. Toggle Activate SSO on. 
  9. Click Save Changes.
