Integration With Azure Active Directory (AD) | Zoho Vault

Integration with Azure Active Directory

Zoho Vault can easily be integrated with Microsoft's Azure Active Directory for efficient collaboration and user management. With this integration, you can manage users' access to Zoho Vault from your Azure AD portal, and allow users to access Zoho Vault with their existing Azure AD credentials. This integration involves four steps:

  1. Adding Zoho from the Azure gallery
  2. Configuring Azure AD Single Sign-on
  3. Assigning access to users 
  4. Accessing Zoho Vault
Note: Only super admins can configure Azure AD Single Sign-on for their organization.
