Set Up Microsoft Sign-On in Avanti

As an Administrator, you want to make it easier for employees to login without having to remember additional login credentials. Simplify user access to the Avanti Desktop, the Avanti Self-Service Portal, and Avanti Go by enabling access using their Microsoft Credentials. 


Is Microsoft Sign-On already set up in Avanti? Go to Set Up Avanti Users for Microsoft Sign-On to enable Microsoft Authentication for an Avanti User.

If your organization uses Azure Active Directory Authentication, you can set up Microsoft Sign-On for all your Avanti Users.

Contact Avanti

Once you’ve completed the above steps, please get in touch with us and:

  • Provide your Domain Name to update it on the Avanti Login Service.

  • Request an ASSP and Avanti Login Service Restart.

  • Include a list of your Avanti User Names and the corresponding Azure AD Username. (Optional)

    Additional Information
    Sending us your Azure AD Username means you won’t have to update each user manually. Instead, we’ll provide a script for you to run and update your users. 
    If the Azure AD Username is already an email on your employees’ Personal Profile in Avanti, you don’t need to send us the list of usernames. Just let us know which email contains the employee’s Azure AD Username so we can create the script.

If you’re currently implementing Avanti, please send this information to your Implementation Specialist. Otherwise, our Client Care Team is happy to help!

Once that’s done, go to Set Up Avanti Users for Microsoft Sign-On to enable Microsoft Authentication for each Avanti User.
