Here are the step by step instructions for a SAML Configuration with Azure AD and RedLine13. Read more about SAML SSO and RedLine13.
Go to Azure Portal -> Azure Active Directory -> Enterprise Applications.
Create an Azure AD Enterprise Non Gallery Application. This operation will take a minute or two to complete
Under ActiveDirectory go to Enterprise Applications -> Select your newly Created App -> Single sign-on (side panel).
Click (Enable) SAML
Copy your “App Federation Metadata Url”
Set up Azure in RedLine13
- http://localhost/SSO/Manage [https://www.redline13.com/SSO/Manage]
- Select Azure

Hit submit and see your SSO Settings
Let’s go back to Azure AD and fill in some properties

- Edit Basic SAML Configuration (click edit button)
- Copy your Entity ID from RedLine13 and paste into Azure AD
- Copy your Reply URL from RedLine13 and paste into Azure AD
- Hit Save Icon
- You might have to refresh your AzureAD page to see the changes
Remove the Namespace from following User Attribute
Completed it should look like this. Refresh page after changes for it to look proper.
You are now at a point we can start testing but a user in your Azure AD must be granted access to your RedLine13.
* If you were as excited as I was to start testing you just clicked the test button and realized quickly that you have not granted yourself access to RedLIne13 and will get this error
Go back to Azure AD and select Users and Groups from the left panel
Click + Add user/group
Select ‘None Selected’
Then select a User (yourself for testing)
Click blue ‘Select’ button to continue
Click blue ‘Assign’ button to continue the process
User is now listed with access
Now we can go back to ‘Single Sign-On’
- Scroll down and click ‘Test’
- Click ‘Sign in as current user’
