Configuring Azure Active Directory Integration with SAML

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a universal platform designed to protect and manage access to identities. The Azure AD service provides SSO access to apps and services from anywhere.

Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), a user can use their managed account credentials to sign in to enterprise cloud applications via Single Sign-On (SSO). An Identity Provider (IdP) service provides administrators with a single place to manage all users and cloud applications. You don't have to manage individual user IDs and passwords tied to individual cloud applications for each of your users. An IdP service provides your users with a unified sign-on across all their enterprise cloud applications. Acunetix 360 supports the SAML methods, both IdP initiated and SP initiated.

You can also create a new user in Acunetix 360 with the Enable Auto Provisioning option.
