Can I use Office 365 for user authentication?

At our company, we are using Office 365 for account management. The few internal applications we use, are all cloud based (services).


To offer a SSO experience, we would like to use the Office 365 credentials to log in to Yellowfin. What are the possibilities? As I mentioned, we mainly use cloud services and thus don't have access to a Windows server. Yellowfin is running on AWS (linux based).

Hello Danny,


This should be possible, but is unfortunately outside of the scope of general support services (This is usually a paid consultancy service).


However, I do have some further info on how to achieve this:
