Configure Single Sign-On for Azure Active Directory in CloudCheckr

In this topic, you will learn how to set up Single Sign-On (SSO) with your Azure Active Directory account by configuring:

  • Azure Active Directory (the Identity Provider or IdP)
  • CloudCheckr (the Service Provider or SP)
If you are a white label customer, we encourage you to contact your Customer Success Manager or our Support team to confirm you're properly set up before you configure Azure Active Directory SSO.
