Microsoft Entra federation compatibility list

Microsoft Entra ID provides single-sign on and enhanced application access security for Microsoft 365 and other Microsoft Online services for hybrid and cloud-only implementations without requiring any third-party solution. Microsoft 365, like most of Microsoft’s Online services, is integrated with Microsoft Entra ID for directory services, authentication, and authorization. Microsoft Entra ID also provides single sign-on to thousands of SaaS applications and on-premises web applications. See the Microsoft Entra ID application gallery for supported SaaS applications.

IDP Validation

If your organization uses a third-party federation solution, you can configure single sign-on for your on-premises Active Directory users with Microsoft Online services, such as Microsoft 365, provided the third-party federation solution is compatible with Microsoft Entra ID. For questions regarding compatibility, please contact your identity provider. If you would like to see a list of identity providers who have previously been tested for compatibility with Microsoft Entra ID, by Microsoft, see Microsoft Entra identity provider compatibility docs.


Microsoft no longer provides validation testing to independent identity providers for compatibility with Microsoft Entra ID. If you would like to test your product for interoperability please refer to these guidelines.
