Azure Active Directory SSO integration with Kno2fy

In this article, you learn how to integrate Kno2fy with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Kno2fy empowers healthcare organizations to send, receive, and find patient information across the healthcare ecosystem with just a few quick clicks. When you integrate Kno2fy with Azure AD, you can:

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to Kno2fy.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Kno2fy with their Azure AD accounts.
  • Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.

You'll configure and test Azure AD single sign-on for Kno2fy in a test environment. Kno2fy supports only SP initiated single sign-on.


Identifier of this application is a fixed string value so only one instance can be configured in one tenant.


To integrate Azure Active Directory with Kno2fy, you need:

  • An Azure AD user account. If you don't already have one, you can Create an account for free.
  • One of the following roles: Global Administrator, Cloud Application Administrator, Application Administrator, or owner of the service principal.
  • An Azure AD subscription. If you don't have a subscription, you can get a free account.
  • Kno2fy single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Add application and assign a test user

Before you begin the process of configuring single sign-on, you need to add the Kno2fy application from the Azure AD gallery. You need a test user account to assign to the application and test the single sign-on configuration.

Add Kno2fy from the Azure AD application gallery to configure single sign-on with Kno2fy. For more information on how to add application from the gallery, see the Quickstart: Add application from the gallery.

Create and assign Azure AD test user

Follow the guidelines in the create and assign a user account article to create a test user account in the Azure portal called B.Simon.

Alternatively, you can also use the Enterprise App Configuration Wizard. In this wizard, you can add an application to your tenant, add users/groups to the app, and assign roles. The wizard also provides a link to the single sign-on configuration pane in the Azure portal. Learn more about Microsoft 365 wizards..

Configure Kno2fy SSO

To configure single sign-on on Kno2fy side, you need to send the downloaded Certificate (Base64) and appropriate copied URLs from Azure portal to Kno2fy support team. They set this setting to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.

Create Kno2fy test user

In this section, you create a user called Britta Simon at Kno2fy. Work with Kno2fy support team to add the users in the Kno2fy platform. Users must be created and activated before you use single sign-on.

Test SSO

In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration with following options.

  • Click on Test this application in Azure portal. This will redirect to Kno2fy Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.

  • Go to Kno2fy Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.

  • You can use Microsoft My Apps. When you select the Kno2fy tile in the My Apps, this will redirect to Kno2fy Sign-on URL. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.
