Single Sign-On Integration: Microsoft Azure


The Single Sign On (SSO) service simplifies the web-based application login process. Once a user authenticates with their OHIO email, they can access multiple SSO-enabled applications without having to re-enter their credentials.


The SSO integration service is available when a faculty or staff member has an application that has gone through the OHIO Technology Review(opens in a new window). Once SSO has been enabled for an application, you will access that application.


  • Typically SSO integrations supported by Azure AD are free of charge. Anything outside the documented standards would need to be evaluated as a project request. The SSO Integration Form will be used to determine whether customization is required.

Who can access

  • All users who are granted access to OHIO’s systems are eligible for SSO use. For applications currently utilizing SSO, this feature is automatically enabled and requires no action or input from the user.

How to request access


  • Allows access to applications via your OHIO login

  • Simplifies username and password management

  • Relieves service desk workloads by reducing number of calls for lost passwords

Connect with other applications

  • The Single Sign On (SSO) service is currently connected to many University services.
