There are different ways to implement Single Sign On (SSO). In this tutorial, I will introduce one of the methods: OneLogin. OneLogin is a third identity provider that provides free SSO for up to 3 SharePoint applications.

Active Directory Connector

After subscribing to the OneLogin website, connect to Active Directory on OneLogin. The steps, explained on OneLogin Zendesk, are quite easy to follow. However, be careful on the following steps:

  • The port 8080 have to be allowed to outbound on the firewall. It’s the default port of the AD connector and can be changed by another one if needed.
  • The user used to run the service can be different depending if you have a single AD forest or not.
