Scenario description

In this tutorial, you configure and test Microsoft Entra SSO in a test environment.

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

To configure the integration of eFlok into Microsoft Entra ID, you need to add eFlok from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft Entra admin center as at least a Cloud Application Administrator.

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, assign roles, and walk through the SSO configuration as well. Learn more about Microsoft 365 wizards.
