Azure Active Directory SSO

Azure Active Directory is a Microsoft Azure service which provides identity and access management. Opsgenie supports single sign on with Azure AD, which means your organization can easily incorporate Opsgenie into your application base in Azure AD and let your users securely access Opsgenie.
