Azure Active Directory SSO integration with SuperAnnotate

In this article, you learn how to integrate SuperAnnotate with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). SuperAnnotate is the all-in-one AI data infrastructure platform that helps ML and data teams save time on building accurate AI models with the highest quality training data - SuperData. When you integrate SuperAnnotate with Azure AD, you can:

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to SuperAnnotate.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to SuperAnnotate 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 SuperAnnotate in a test environment. SuperAnnotate supports only SP initiated single sign-on.


To integrate Azure Active Directory with SuperAnnotate, 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.
  • SuperAnnotate 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 SuperAnnotate 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 SuperAnnotate from the Azure AD application gallery to configure single sign-on with SuperAnnotate. 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 Azure AD SSO

Complete the following steps to enable Azure AD single sign-on in the Azure portal.

  1. In the Azure portal, on the SuperAnnotate application integration page, find the Manage section and select single sign-on.

  2. On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.

  3. On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, select the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.

    Screenshot shows how to edit Basic SAML Configuration.

  4. On the Basic SAML Configuration section, perform the following steps:

    a. In the Identifier textbox, type a value using the following pattern: urn:amazon:cognito:sp:<USER_POOL_ID>

    b. In the Reply URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern: https://<DOMAIN PREFIX>.auth.<REGION>

    c. In the Sign on URL textbox, type the URL:


    These values are not real. Update these values with the actual Identifier and Reply URL. Contact SuperAnnotate support team to get these values. You can also refer to the patterns shown in the Basic SAML Configuration section in the Azure portal.

  5. SuperAnnotate application expects the SAML assertions in a specific format, which requires you to add custom attribute mappings to your SAML token attributes configuration. The following screenshot shows the list of default attributes.

    Screenshot shows the image of attributes configuration.

  6. In addition to above, SuperAnnotate application expects few more attributes to be passed back in SAML response, which are shown below. These attributes are also pre populated but you can review them as per your requirements.

    Name Source Attribute
    groups user.groups [ApplicationGroup]
  7. On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, copy the App Federation Metadata Url or download the Federation Metadata XML and save it on your computer.

    Screenshot shows the Certificate download link.

Configure SuperAnnotate SSO

To configure single sign-on on SuperAnnotate side, you need to set up the copied App Federation Metadata Url or the downloaded Federation Metadata XML in the SSO setup page of the SuperAnnotate side to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.

Create SuperAnnotate test user

In this section, you create a user called Britta Simon in SuperAnnotate. Work with SuperAnnotate support team to add the users in the SuperAnnotate 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 SuperAnnotate Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.

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

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

Once you configure SuperAnnotate you can enforce session control, which protects exfiltration and infiltration of your organization’s sensitive data in real time. Session control extends from Conditional Access. Learn how to enforce session control with Microsoft Cloud App Security.
