If you want to set up a corporate login with Microsoft in anny, you've come to the right place! This article will guide you through the process step-by-step.


Before we begin, ensure you have anny Admin rights and access to your organization's Azure Active Directory.


  1. Access Azure Active Directory: Start by going to Azure Active Directory.

  2. Create a New Enterprise Application: Navigate to Enterprise Applications > New Application > Create Custom Application.

  3. Naming and Selection: Enter a name (e.g., anny SSO) and choose "Integrate any other application you don't find in the gallery."

  4. Proceed to "Set up SSO or Single sign-on."

  5. Select SAML

  6. Download anny's metadata XML file and upload it to Microsoft via "Upload Metadata File."
