Introduction

This document describes the configurations required for SAML 2.0 integration between the Octopus Authenticator and the Microsoft Office 365 web service.


Office 365 is supported by configuring the Octopus Authenticator Server as a 3rd party SAML Identity Provider. A common challenge here is the lack of intermediate migration. Unlike other SAML services that typically offer alternative authentication methods, the transition to SAML affects all Office365 users at once. Secret Double Octopus solves this challenge using a unique approach that allows customers a gradual migration of Office365 users to SAML and to password-free authentication.
