Azure Active Directory SSO

Enable Azure Active Directory Single Sign-On (SSO) for your Squadcast Organisation

Squadcast supports SAML 2.0-based Single Sign-On (SSO) login for Azure Active Directory users. You can integrate your Squadcast Organization with your Azure Active Directory SSO by following this integration guide.


  1. Account Owner / Administrator account in Squadcast

Point to Note:

1. Only an Administrator / Account owner can enable and configure Azure Active Directory SSO for an Organisation in Squadcast. 2. Once enabled, only the Account Owner can use email-password-based login by default although, it can be configured to enable email-password-based login for Administrators as well.

Setup Guide

1. Login to and navigate to Settings > Extensions. Click the Configure button under SSO.

2. In the opened modal, select the Custom SAML 2.0 tab and click Show configuration guide for Custom SAML 2.0

As given in the displayed guide, copy the ACS URL shown in point 1
