Configuring Azure for Coveo Cloud SSO

Azure is a set of cloud services provided by Microsoft. You can use it to build single sign-on (SSO) applications, among other things.

An Azure AD Premium subscription is required to build an SSO application for Coveo Cloud. The application creation feature used in the procedure below is not a feature of the basic Azure AD subscription (see Configure your Azure Portal).

As a Coveo Cloud administrator, you can implement Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 SSO when your company uses Azure Active Directory (AD) (see Coveo Cloud V2 SAML SSO). Users can then log in to Coveo Cloud without having to provide their authentication credentials since their identity has previously been validated when logging in to their Azure session.

To allow users to log in via SAML SSO, Coveo Cloud must be able to trust and rely on Azure to authenticate users wishing to log in. To establish this trust relationship, you must configure Azure and Coveo Cloud so that both parties can exchange authentication information.
