Box users unable to use Azure/Office 365 Single Sign On to logon to

When Office 365 users try to logon to using the Single Sign On (SSO) opttion they receive an error message that says "AADSTS50105: The signed in user '' is not assigned to a role for the application '23255106-946e-4c11-8170-131e9f810d10'."

I used the instructions from this website to generate the metadata file for Azure Single Sign On (SSO) for

This occurs even though Box has been configured to use Azure to logon to Box and all Azure users have been assigned E1 and E5 Office 365 licenses.

Currently I am in Step 1: Test the connection and have put a checkmark in the "SSO Test Mode" box.

I have submitted an urgent tech support request to Box but haven't heard back from them yet.

What else needs to be done to fix this issue so that this organization will be able to use Single Sigon on (SSO) through Azure to authenticate the Office 365 users to logon to

Do the Office 365 users need to be assigned additional or different licenses?

Please let me know if any further information is needed.

Resolved this issue by working with Azure tech support.

We enabled the certificate within the Azure console and now Box users are able to logon to Box using their Azure SSO accounts.

Azure handles the authentication.  UT does not handle box licenses. You ONLY mentioned assigning office 365 licenses. If you haven't created users and assigned permissions in box  then authenticating the user does nothing.

These user accounts have been created within Box.

Is there a special way they need to be created or are there any special attributes or things that need to be done when these accounts are created within Box that will be using Azure authentication?
