This will enable you to provide SSO to all SAML compliant apps creating a seamless end-user experience. The Active Directory connection can use Active Directory over LDAP, or Active Directory Integrated Windows Authentication. Active Directory over LDAP connection supports DNS service location lookup by default. With Active Directory Integrated Windows Authentication, you configure the domain to join.
