1. What is SSO?

Single Sign-On (SSO) refers to enabling a single set of credentials to access different applications. One password to rule them all (and in the darkness bind them?)It's safer, saves your brain cells from having to remember an extra set of credentials, and makes it even easier to log in to Paperflite.

2. How does Paperflite enable Microsoft Azure SSO?

Paperflite supports Microsoft Azure SSO via SAML 2.0. Short and sweet.

3. How do I set up Microsoft Azure SSO for our account?

Login to with your credentials.

Step 2:

> Click on View on the Manage Azure Active Directory tab.

Step 3:

Once you enter the Default Directory, under the Manage tab, click on Enterprise application.

You'll be taken to the applications window, where all of your previously created applications are displayed. Select the application you have created for Paperflite.

You can now proceed to download the SSO configuration file under the Federation Metadata XML file.

After the setup is complete, submit the downloaded certificate to your Customer Success manager at Paperflite or the Paperflite support team, and we'll enable it in the backend for your account.

4. Set up Paperflite Production

After the configuration, these are quick checks to ensure that all the URLs are in place.

5. Test single sign-on with Paperflite Production

Once the team has added the SSO file, you can use the Test option to do a quick check. This will give you an insight into your sign-in experience on the Paperflite platform.

4. Adding Users to Azure account for SSO

If you have multiple users on the Paperflite account and want them to log in via SSO, they have to be added to the Azure SSO account. Here’s how you can do it:

> Choose the respective application.

> Once inside the application, select Users and Groups from the left menu tab.

> You will be redirected to the User list tab. To add new users, click on the Add User/Group option present at the top.

5. Testing SSO login post setup

There is another way to test this on your end to ensure that the users log in to the Paperflite application without any hassle.

> Go to Log in using the respective credentials of the user added to the account

> Click on the application that the users have been added to from the list of all the apps present.

> You are taken directly redirected to the Paperflite application.
