Azure Bot Services: Advanced Deployment with SSO (Microsoft Teams): Intro


This is an in-depth tutorial series which will guide you through each necessary step to use SSO in your Microsoft Teams client and to use the full potential of the Microsoft Graph API.

In order to create a working integration, it's important to follow each step of this tutorial in the order described above.



To make sure SSO is working, you need to verify that it's enabled for your setup. If you use a shared SaaS offering, it should be automatically enabled, otherwise you can check it by creating an Azure Bot Services Endpoint. If you have a field called "SSO Connection Name" in the "Azure Bot Services Settings", then it's enabled. Otherwise, please ask your admins to enable it by setting the feature flag "FEATURE_USE_MICROSOFT_SSO" to true.

Furthermore, a lot of different steps need to be done in Azure so an account with high administrative permissions is required.


Create an Azure Bot Services Endpoint

At first, we need to create an endpoint for the Azure Bot Services. Yes, we also have a Teams endpoint, but the functionality is slightly different and more advanced, so the Azure Bot Services endpoint is required for Single-Sign-On even though the endpoint will be Microsoft Teams.


For now, we only need to create the endpoint and leave it unconfigured. We will update it in a later step when we got all mandatory information.


Copy your Endpoint URL to a text file so it can be reused in later steps.
