    Upload Certificate from CloudWisdom to Azure SAML SSO Application

    1. Select Upload metadata file.

    2. Upload the .cert file created in CloudWisdom from the first step.

    Define Azure SAML SSO Configuration

    1. Select Edit on the Basic SAML Configuration card. A slide-out panel appears.

    2. Input the following values:

      • Identifier (Entity ID): netuitive-api

      • Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL):

      • Sign on URL:

      • Relay State: Your Tenant Name (optional)


    Add your tenant name to the Relay State field if you do not want to enter it when logging into CloudWisdom from Azure. Your tenant name is the company name you used when you signed up for a CloudWisdom account. You can find it on the SSO page in CloudWisdom.

    Define User Attributes & Claims

    1. Select Edit on the User Attributes & Claims card.

    2. Select + Add new claim.

      • firstName: user.givenname

      • lastName: user.surname

      • role: "Read Only"


    The role claim attribute can also be set to "Administrator", however this makes all SSO users administrators in CloudWisdom. We recommend updating your administrator accounts individually and leaving the default role to Read Only.

Log in to CloudWisdom Using SSO

Now that you have SSO configured, you can log in to CloudWisdom a couple different ways.

The first way is to visit the main SSO login page and provide your tenant name; your tenant name can be found on the SSO page in CloudWisdom. You can also append your tenant name to the end of the main SSO login page URL to have it pre-populated on the page.

The second way is to visit a link that automatically re-directs you to your SSO provider; if you’re signed into your SSO provider, you will be logged in to CloudWisdom automatically, otherwise you will be prompted by your SSO provider to sign in before getting logged in to CloudWisdom.
