SAML Troubleshooting

Daniel Marchen 1 Reputation point

I registered a new app that requires SAML authentication. Azure AD as Identity Provider and the app as Service Provider. I opened the SP app and tried to login but it shows authentication failure. Is there any way to check any event or logs related to SAML authentications in Azure AD?

    If you want to troubleshoot SAML you can use SAML tracer, like that you will be able to see all exchanges between your SP and IdP

    Hi @Daniel Marchen , as Clement mentioned you can use the SAML tracer extension to view all exchanges. If this doesn't resolve your issue I can help you further to see if there's something broken with your AAD configuration.

    Thank you,
