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.

Pre-requisites

  1. 1.
    Account Owner / Administrator account in Squadcast
  2. 2.
    A valid Squadcast subscription in either (Pro or Enterprise plans)
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
