Enabling Single Sign-On for your Cogmotive account


To enable Single Sign-On for your Cogmotive account you need to first ensure you have met a few pre-requisites.

1.  You need an Azure account configured for your company.  If you do not have one, you can sign up for a free trial.  You will not be charged extra by Microsoft or Cogmotive for using Single Sign-On with your account.

2.  You need Administrator access to the Domain in Azure Active Directory that you are using for Office 365.

3.  You need an existing Cogmotive account with Admin permissions.

Enabling Single Sign-On

To get started, log in to Cogmotive Reports as your Admin account and navigate to User Management in the left hand navigation menu.

These user accounts will be removed during the setup process, so make note of any users with access as well as any Role Based Access Restriction that exists on those accounts.  They will need to be re-created once the setup is complete.


Now navigate to the Profile & Settings link in the left hand navigation menu and select the Single Sign-On tab.

Ensure you have met all the pre-requisite criteria and click the Enable Single Sign-On button.  

This will redirect you to the Microsoft Sign In website where you will be asked to give consent to joining the Cogmotive Application to your Azure Active Directory.

Once you have granted consent, you will be taken back to Cogmotive.

Important: You now need to enable User Assignment in Azure.
