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

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/

Got everything exactly as described (especially the GPO setting "Subscription Activation"), however users get prompted to enter their email address.....

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