Azure AD (Active Directory)

Learn to configure Azure AD SSO with BigPanda.

Azure AD (Active Directory) Sign-On automatically signs users in when they are on their corporate devices connected to your corporate network. When enabled, users don't need to type in their passwords to sign in to Azure AD, and usually, even type in their usernames. This feature provides your users easy access to BigPanda without needing any additional on-premises components.

Use the instructions on this page to configure the Azure AD solution in BigPanda.
