How to configure Azure Active Directory SSO for Kaiterra

Note: Single Sign-On is available for Kaiterra Subscription users only. If you are not a Kaiterra Subscription user and require SSO, please contact your sales representative for more information.

To use Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) as your Identity Provider (IdP) for the Kaiterra Web App, you need to configure both Azure AD and your Kaiterra settings. This document will guide you through the steps.


Before you start, make sure you have:

  • A Kaiterra Web App account with administrator privileges
  • An Azure AD account
  • An Administrator role in Azure AD

Prepare Kaiterra

You will need some information from the Kaiterra Web App to paste into the Azure portal, and vice versa. So first, open a tab for the Kaiterra Web App, and in your Organization Settings, open the SSO tab. 

If you do not see an SSO tab, you might not have an active subscription plan.
Please contact your Kaiterra Sales Representative for more information.
