Azure Active Directory is a Microsoft Azure service which provides an easy way for businesses to manage identity and access, for both in-cloud and on-premise purposes. Integrating WhosOffice with Azure AD enables your organisation to incorporate the security from Azure AD into the authentication process flow on WhosOffice.
By using Azure AD to sign in to WhosOffice, your users will have one less username and password to remember, which means less support for your business in assisting users with account lock-outs and password resets. Your organisation may also have strict IT policies that need to be followed, such as:
Put simply: you tell Microsoft that you want to integrate with WhosOffice, they give you a certificate which you then provide to WhosOffice. You then tell Microsoft who you want to provide access to and that's it. When the user visits your dedicated login page on WhosOffice, you can either let them choose to login with their Azure AD account details, or force them to authenticate through Azure AD.
To configure Single Sign-On integration between your Azure Active Directory and WhosOffice, we recommend you read the tutorial Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with WhosOffice, provided by Microsoft.
