In this article you will learn how to set up Blue Billywig Single Sign On (SSO) with an Azure Active Directory (AD) identity provider.

1.0 | Azure AD setup

2.0 | Configure SSO in the OVP

Finally, reach out to the Blue Billywig support team at to enable SSO on your OVP account. 

To enable Azure Active Directory on your OVP account we need to receive the App Federation Metadata endpoint on Azure AD. This typically looks like:{ad-tenant-id}/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml?appid={application-id}
