Haystack supports authenticating users using Single Sign On (SSO) with Microsoft, Apple and Google.

If you're an Enterprise client, Haystack's support of SSO may differ from other SSO implementations you've used in the past. This is due to specific requirements that satisfy various Privacy regulations around the world (such as GDPR).

In Haystack's implementation, there are two parts:

  1. Authenticating with SSO as an Azure Active Directory (AAD) client

  2. Setting up AAD integration with Haystack

Here is a diagram of how both the AAD integration and the SSO authentication works:

This article explains how SSO is achieved when the enterprise is using AAD (the first point). If you're looking for information about the second point, Haystack's integration with AAD, please read this article about AAD integration.

To turn on the ability to authenticate your users using AAD's SSO credentials, all your AAD Admin needs to do is:

  1. Download the free Haystack app from the App Store or Google Play Store

  2. Choose "sign in with Microsoft"

  3. Enter their work email

  4. "Accept" the permissions (only AAD Admins will be able to do so)

  5. And that's it! Haystack will be added automatically as an Enterprise App in your AAD Admin Dashboard.
