How to setup SSO with Azure AD

To enable Single Sign-on through Azure, you need to have an existing configured application on Azure AD.

Create a new application for SSO in Azure Active Directory

Go to your administrator Dashboard in Azure Active Directory and click to Active Directory > Enterprise Applications

Click + Create your own application.

Type in a relevant name, select Non-gallery application, and click Create.

After this you're redirected to the newly created application Overview, go to Getting started via the left side menu and click Configure single sign-on (or click Single sign-on from the side menu).

Select SAML as the single sign-on method.

Click on the pencil icon to Edit step 1, the Basic SAML Configuration.

Add the following values and save:
Identifier (Entity ID): instahyre
Reply URL:

After you saved the settings, click on the pencil icon to Edit step 2, the User Attributes & Claims.

Under User Attributes & Claims edit the values accordingly and Save. Users who register in your SSO-enabled company will have these fields pre-filled in the registration form.

Scroll down and click on the pencil icon to Edit step 3, the SAML Signing Certificate. At Signing Option click on the dropdown menu and change it to Sign SAML response. Save, and close the form.

Under step 3, download the Federation Metadata XML.

Log into Instahyre and go to Integrations > Single Sign On from your admin account

After the metadata file is uploaded, SSO will be enabled.
You can then invite users and manage permissions/user settings from your Identity provider
