  8. You can use the Orange button to toggle back and forth between Agents and Authors. You'll need the Entity ID, ACS URL, and Logout URL (SLO). 
  9. Click Next: Enter Identity Provider Data for Authors/Agents button. In Azure, select Enter Identity Provider and then input the  Entity IDAssertion Consumer Service (ACS)Logout Url (SLO) you got from Zingtree. 
  10. Download the Certificate (Base64) in SAML Signing Certificate. Open the Certificate file with an editor or Notepad. Copy and paste the information into the Certificate field in Zingtree's Enter Identity Provider.
  11.  Once all the information is submitted, run a test on both Azure AD and Zingtree to confirm it is working.



Enabling SSO for Agents/Authors

Once SSO is working properly from your test, you can restrict access to any tree as follows.

  1. From My Team, Single Sign-on, make sure you are on the Agents/Authors page.
  2. Tick enable Agents/Authors.


IMPORTANT: You still need to specify individual trees to restrict access to. Here’s how:

  1. Go to My Trees, and select the tree that you want to require SSO login.
  2. Click Settings > Security, and you’ll see something like this:


  3. Check Require Login via Single Sign-on (SSO).
  4. Click Update Settings.

  1. Go to My Team, My Agents.
  2. Give your agents the link from this button:
