Configuring User Provisioning

Provisioning of users is a manual process. The azure administrator should add all the users from Azure to Humanity, make sure that Humanity emails and Azure usernames match, and activate Humanity user profiles so they can log in to Humanity. If there is no user profile on Humanity side with an email that matches username of currently signed in Azure user, the error message like this will pop up:

Note: Humanity Single Sign-On feature uses SAML 2.0 and email as a unique identifier of a user.
