Set up Azure Active Directory with Enhanced Authentication


The procedure described on this page applies only to organizations that are not yet onboarded to the Adobe Admin Console.

If your organization has been onboarded to the Adobe Admin Console, see Platform-based administration differences (Adobe Workfront/Adobe Business Platform).

When Adobe Workfront expects a different signature method for the SAML response, you need to change which parts of the SAML token are digitally signed by Azure Active Directory (AD).

Access requirements

You must have the following access to perform the steps in this article:

Adobe Workfront plan Any
Adobe Workfront license Plan
Access level configurations

You must be a Workfront administrator.

NOTE: If you still don't have access, ask your Workfront administrator if they set additional restrictions in your access level. For information on how a Workfront administrator can modify your access level, see Create or modify custom access levels.
