In this guide we will instruct you on how to set up AD-FS as an Identity Provider (IdP) to be used with PebblePad via Shibboleth 2 as a Service Provider (SP).


Using Security Assertion Mark-up Language (SAML), a user can use their Active Directory credentials to sign in to PebblePad via Single Sign-On (SSO). An identity and access management (IAM) service provides administrators with a single place to manage all users and cloud applications. You do not have to manage individual user IDs and passwords tied to individual cloud applications for each of your users. An IAM service provides your users with a unified sign-on across all their enterprise cloud applications.
