Office 365 on premise deployment activation not seamless (SSO)

Dear all

We have O365 deployed on premise.
User federation uses a third party tool (NetIQ CloudAccess) and works fine.
Now when a user starts an Office application on his desktop he get's a prompt asking to enter email address for activation.
When he enters his email and clicks next everything works fine (Office activated without further password prompt).

Is there a configuration / setting available, so that the user doesn't need to enter his email address?

regards
Werner

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on the activation method. But in general you can follow the steps here to bypass most of the popup dialogs: https://osddeployment.wordpress.com/2016/04/26/automating-office-365-click-to-run-first-use-with-group-policy/

You might want to check with NetIQ and see if there are any particular settings required for Windows Integrated Authentication to work seamlessly.
