Air Watch AD intergration with office365 Azure AD

Hi Guys

I Hoping somebody can help me with this, we're a very small charity so our IT resource is somewhat limited

I'm trying to integrate our AirWatch instance to our Office365 AD so that users can authenticate against using their Office365 credentials.

Our office365 subscription provides basic AD via Azure & I've been able to install the air watch app on our Azure AD instance from their app repo but on the airwatch side I need to specify the AD server name & port, I can't find these anywhere within our Azure AD control screens.

Is anyone able to advise where I'm likely to find these (office365 support forums have drawn a blank) or has anyone setup Airwatch integration with Office365 AD in the past & can lend some pointers.

Sadly without an expensive support agreement from Air-Watch they are unable to assist us any further

"Active Directory" is an umbrella term that includes quite a few technologies. "Active Directory Domain Services" (ADDS) is inaccurately called "Active Directory" by some sysadmins and it runs on local domain controllers. Azure Active Directory (AAD) is a totally different animal. It is not ADDS, and products that integrate with ADDS do not necessarily integrate with AAD. This is extremely important when evaluating products.

You *can* achieve Single Sign-On (SSO) with Airwatch and Azure AD. But not by implementing AD integration within Airwatch. That is only for ADDS. Instead, you need a subscription that has SSO enabled (not all subscriptions do) and you need to go in the SSO panel of Airwatch and configure SAML. SAML is a common protocol that AAD and Airwatch both support.
