How to Set up Single Sign-on With Azure Active Directory (AAD)

Microsoft's Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a universal platform to manage and secure identities. If your company uses Azure AD, you may want to set up Single Sign-on for your Oktopost account and users. Oktopost supports Single Sign-on using SAML 2.0, which you can easily integrate with Azure AD as the Identity Provider (IDP). Oktopost supports both SP-initiated and Idp-initiated single sign-on, and in this tutorial, we'll show you how to set it.


To set up Azure AD Single Sign-on for Oktopost, you must have:

  1. Admin access to Oktopost.
  2. Admin access to Azure AD.

Creating a New Azure AD App

First, to integrate Oktopost with Azure AD, you must add Oktopost to your list of apps. Sign in to your Azure portal, and navigate to Azure Active Directory.

Then, select Enterprise applications → All applications.

To add an application, select New application.

Click on Create your own application.

Give it a name, and click Create.

Configure Azure AD Single Sign-on

Once you've created a new application, click on Single sign-on in the application paneand select SAML.

In the Basic SAML Configuration pane, click Edit, enter the Identifier (Entity ID) and Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL). The Entity ID should be, and the Reply URL should be

Then, in the User Attributes & Claims Configuration pane, click Edit, and set up the Required Claim. The Claim name should be Name ID, and the Value should be "user.mail" (the users' email) using an unspecified format (nameid-format:unspecified).

Configure Oktopost Single Sign-on

Now that you've set up the Azure AD app, open a separate browser tab and sign in to Oktopost. Go to Account Settings → Security → Single Sign-on. Select "Yes" on "Enable Single Sign-on" to enable the SSO and complete the steps below.

  1. Copy the Login URL from the "Set up {your app name}" Configuration pane in Azure AD, and paste it into the SAML Endpoint field in Oktopost.
  2. Copy the Azure AD Identifier, again from the "Set up {your app name}" Configuration pane in Azure AD, and paste it into the Issuer URL field in Oktopost.
  3. Download the Certificate (Base64) from the "SAML Signing Certificate" Configuration pane and upload it to Oktopost.
  4. Click Save, and you're done.

Once you're done configuring the integration, you can grant access to users from the Users and groups application pane in Azure AD. You can test the integration by signing out of Oktopost and using the "Test" option in Azure AD.
