You can setup Single Sign-On during first initial registration and configuration or in the settings page of Workspace. 



To setup Single Sign-On automatically, choose the "Automatic setup". Workspace 365 will create an Azure AD application with the permissions you will grant. By default SharePoint and Exchange are checked. Additional you can choose to add Power BI permissions to the application.

Make sure when you want to save the application, your Office 365/Azure AD password is filled in and that you check "I give Workspace 365 permissions to create an Azure AD application to provide Single Sign-On."

When you are done with this configuration, click "Done". After you click done, you will be redirected and signed out. After you are redirected, you will get a concent of all previous set permissions. You have to accept these permissions. 


Be aware that these permissions are only granted for administrator in this tenant. You have to grant it for all users. If you do not "Grant Permissions" you will receive the following error while trying to log in to the workspace: "Need admin approval"

To grant permissions to all users, go to and open Azure Active Directory. Open the automatic created Single Sign On application. The name of the application will look like {{Productname}} SSO. In this case, Workspace 365 SSO.

Navigate to -> "Azure Active Directory" -> "App registrations".

Switch from "My apps" to "All apps". Select the Single Sign-On application, open the "Settings""Required permissions" and click "Grant Permissions".
