Reflektive can support most Single Sign-On providers if they follow the SAML 2.0 standard. Below you’ll find step-by-step instructions for how to configure Reflektive in some of the more common SSO Providers. Generally speaking, Reflektive requires the pieces of information listed below in order to complete an SSO configuration
- X.509 Certificate
- SAML URL
Once created, please send the two pieces of information to your Customer Onboarding Manager or Reflektive Technical Point of Contact.
(Note: typically the X.509 certificate and SSO URL are part of the overall XML medata file of your SSO configuration. The XML file can also be sent in lieu of just the X.509 certificate as part of the SSO set-up).

Integrating Reflektive with Azure Active Directory (AD) provides you with the following benefits:
- You can control in Azure AD who has access to Reflektive.
- You can enable your users to automatically get signed-on to Reflektive (Single Sign-On) with their Azure AD accounts.
- You can manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.
Below are the recommended steps for configuring an Azure Active Directory with Reflektive, to support SAML 2.0 SSO for your users. These steps may vary slightly for each customer, but all the necessary actions are listed here.
If you want to know more details about SaaS app integration with Azure AD, see what is application access and single sign-on with Azure Active Directory.
IMPORTANT: Please send us the SAML URL and x.509 certificate
To configure Azure AD integration with Reflektive, you need the following items:
- An Azure AD subscription
- A Reflektive single-sign on enabled subscription
To test the steps in this tutorial, you should follow these recommendations:
- Do not use your production environment, unless it is necessary.
- If you don't have an Azure AD trial environment, you can get a one-month trial.
In this tutorial, you test Azure AD Single Sign-On in a test environment. The scenario outlined in this tutorial consists of two main building blocks:
- Adding Reflektive from the gallery
- Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on
Adding Reflektive from the gallery
To configure the integration of Reflektive into Azure AD, you need to add Reflektive from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.
To add Reflektive from the gallery, perform the following steps:
In the Azure portal, on the left navigation panel, click Azure Active Directory icon.
Navigate to Enterprise applications. Then go to All applications.
To add new application, click New application button on the top of dialog.
In the search box, type Reflektive, select Reflektive from result panel then click Add button to add the application.
Configure and test Azure AD single sign-on
In this section, you configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with Reflektive based on a test user called "Britta Simon".
For single sign-on to work, Azure AD needs to know what the counterpart user in Reflektive is to a user in Azure AD. In other words, a link relationship between an Azure AD user and the related user in Reflektive needs to be established.
In Reflektive, assign the value of the user name in Azure AD as the value of the Username to establish the link relationship.
To configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with Reflektive, you need to complete the following building blocks:
- Configure Azure AD Single Sign-On - to enable your users to use this feature.
- Create an Azure AD test user - to test Azure AD single sign-on with Britta Simon.
- Create a Reflektive test user - to have a counterpart of Britta Simon in Reflektive that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
- Assign the Azure AD test user - to enable Britta Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
- Test single sign-on - to verify whether the configuration works.
Configure Azure AD Single Sign-On
In this section, you enable Azure AD single sign-on in the Azure portal and configure single sign-on in your Reflektive application.
To configure Azure AD Single Sign-On with Reflektive, perform the following steps:
In the Azure portal, on the Reflektive application integration page, click Single sign-on.
On the Single sign-on dialog, select Mode as SAML-based Sign-on to enable single sign-on.
On the Reflektive Domain and URLs section, perform the following steps if you wish to configure the application in IDP initiated mode:
In the Identifier textbox, use one of the below URL as per confirmation from the Reflektive support team:
Check Show advanced URL settings and perform the following step if you wish to configure the application in SP initiated mode:
In the Sign-on URL textbox, type a URL:
Note: For SP mode you need to get the email id registered with Reflektive support team. When you enter your ID in the Email textbox then the single sign-on option will be enabled.
On the SAML Signing Certificate section, click Metadata XML and then save the metadata file on your computer.
Click Save button.
To configure single sign-on on Reflektive side, you need to send the downloaded Metadata XML to Reflektive support team. They set this setting to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.
Tip: You can now read a concise version of these instructions inside the Azure portal, while you are setting up the app! After adding this app from the Active Directory > Enterprise Applications section, simply click the Single Sign-On tab and access the embedded documentation through the Configuration section at the bottom. You can read more about the embedded documentation feature here: Azure AD embedded documentation
Create an Azure AD test user
The objective of this section is to create a test user in the Azure portal called Britta Simon.
To create a test user in Azure AD, perform the following steps:
In the Azure portal, in the left pane, click the Azure Active Directory button.
To display the list of users, go to Users and groups, and then click All users.
To open the User dialog box, click Add at the top of the All Users dialog box.

b. In the User name box, type the email address of user Britta Simon.
c. Select the Show Password check box, and then write down the value that's displayed in the Password box.
d. Click Create.
Create a Reflektive test user
In this section, you create a user called Britta Simon in Reflektive. Work with Reflektive support team to add the users in the Reflektive platform. Users must be created and activated before you use single sign-on.
Assign the Azure AD test user
In this section, you enable Britta Simon to use Azure single sign-on by granting access to Reflektive.
To assign Britta Simon to Reflektive, perform the following steps:
In the Azure portal, open the applications view, and then navigate to the directory view and go to Enterprise applications then click All applications.
In the applications list, select Reflektive.
In the menu on the left, click Users and groups.
Click Add button. Then select Users and groups on Add Assignment dialog.

Other SAML 2.0 Providers
Reflektive has a generic SAML 2.0 implementation that supports Single Sign-On through many other integrated providers. While the integration steps may vary slightly in each case, we offer these general guidelines:
1. Reflektive provides our metadata XML files for QA and Production, which contain all relevant information for integration (attached below). This includes:
- Reflektive's Service URL: https://www.reflektive.com/saml/consume
- Reflektive's Identifier: reflektive.com
2. The customer sets up the connection in their SSO provider, and in turn provides Reflektive with their relevant metadata XML files (sent to email@example.com). Specifically, Reflektive requests:
- Sign-on/SAML URL
- x.509 Certificate or Formatted Fingerprint
SSO providers currently integrated with Reflektive in this way include:
