Getting set up to use Microsoft's Azure Active Directory SSO with InVision V7 involves three primary tasks:
- Add InVision as a new application in Azure
- Configure the InVision application in Azure
- Configure Azure in InVision V7
This document walks you through the process.
We recommend that these steps are completed by your IT team or an IT Manager.
Add InVision as a new application in Azure
To add the InVision app in Azure, follow these steps in this article.
Configure the InVision app in Azure
To configure and enable the InVision app in Azure:
- Open the InVision app and, in the Manage section, select single sign-on.
- On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.
- To the right of Basic SAML Configuration on the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, click the pen icon and edit the settings.
For detailed instructions on editing these SAML configuration settings in Azure, check out the "Configure Azure AD SSO" section of Microsoft's related Help article.
- In the SAML Signing Certificate section of the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, next to Certificate (Base64), select Download and save the certificate to your desktop (or wherever you can easily find it later).
- In the Set up InVision section, copy the URLs next to each of these labels:
- Login URL
- Azure AD Identifier
- Logout URL
Once you've completed these steps in Azure, you're ready to open your Enterprise team settings in InVision V7, where you'll add the details you saved in steps 4 and 5.
