In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how to integrate Flipsnack with SAML Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).
There are many benefits to integrating Flipsnack with Azure SAML:
- You can control who has access to Flipsnack in Azure AD.
- You can enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Flipsnack (Single Sign-On) with their Azure AD accounts.
- You can manage your accounts from one central location - the Azure portal.
To configure Azure AD integration with Flipsnack, you’ll first need:
- An Azure AD subscription. If you don't have an Azure AD subscription, you can get a one-month free trial.
- A Flipsnack subscription with single sign-on option enabled.
Create a SAML application
To be able to integrate Flipsnack with Azure AD, you need to configure a SAML application in Azure AD.
To set up the application, perform the following steps:
1. Log in to Azure portal and on the left navigation panel click on Azure Active Directory icon.
2. Navigate to Enterprise applications -> All applications and click on New application.
3. In order to add a new application click on Create your own application.
4. Enter a name for your application and select “Integrate any other application you don’t find in the gallery”.
5. Then, from your application page click on Single Sign-on.
6. Choose the SAML option.
7. Now, click Edit for basic SAML configuration.
8. Enter the following information and click Save:
- Identifier (Entity ID): https://www.flipsnack.com
- Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL): https://www.flipsnack.com/accounts/sign-in-sso.html
- Logout URL: https://www.flipsnack.com/accounts/sign-out.html
Configure SAML in Flipsnack
