Configure Azure AD SSO

You can enable users to access the Threat Command with IdP-initiated Azure AD SSO. In addition, you can enable SP-initiated SSO and user provisioning with the SAML Just In Time (JIT) method.

User provisioning with JIT enables Azure AD users to register new Threat Command users directly from Azure AD, thus bypassing the need to set up each user individually in Threat Command. For more information, see Provisioning Users with JIT.
