Microsoft Entra ID – Cognism integration allows for easier access of your organization’s users to the Cognism platform with the enablement of IdP-initiated Single Sign-On.
The steps below outline the setup process. You will be required to go back and forth between the organisation’s Entra and the Cognism Web Application.
Add the Cognism App in Entra
Search for and add Cognism in Entra.
Copy the Identifier and ACS URL from the Cognism Web Application
Click the User Avatar at the top-right of the screen and click Settings.
Click the Single Sign-On tab at the left of the screen. Go to the Entra SSO and click Configure.
Copy the Identifier (Entity ID) and ACS URL (SSO URL) from the modal and paste this in Entra.
Generate the Entity ID and X.509 Certificate in Entra
You should be able to copy, or download the certificate. This will be used in the next part of the setup back in the Cognism Web Application.
Complete the configuration in the Cognism Web Application
Copy and Paste the Entity ID from Entra.
Copy and Paste the X.509 Certificate that is generated in Entra.
Click Enable to activate Entra once both fields are filled in.
If your Entra instance is set up with a custom domain, you will need to reach out to our Support team to whitelist the domain before users can login via Entra.
Users can then log in to Cognism via Entra.
