Browser configuration for single sign-on with Active Directory


If a tenant is configured to support AD authentication, you can use a recognized AD user account to access the Tenant Management Console with single sign-on. However, for this to work, the web browser you use to access the Console must be configured to support single sign-on.

This appendix contains instructions for configuring Windows Internet Explorer® and Mozilla® Firefox® to support single sign-on.
