To use FLEXFIG with Azure Active Directory, you are required to have both an active Microsoft account and a Microsoft Azure account.
Microsoft Azure offers customers a free version of Active Directory which enables FLEXFIG users to utilize Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities.
If you do not have an existing Microsoft Account and/or Microsoft Azure account, follow the steps in both the Microsoft Account Creation and Microsoft Azure Account Creation sections below to create your accounts. If you have an existing Microsoft Azure account, you can skip to the "Invite FLEXFIG Team to Your Microsoft Azure Account" section.
