SSO initiation from Dashboard

I have been implementing SSO with AzureAD  on our Meraki environment. 

Could not find how to login as no SSO option was visible at the dashboard.

It appeared Meraki doesn't support client initiated login ??

I've found on another site: Identity Provider (IdP) initiated sign-in. You will not be able to sign in directly from the Mearki dashboard, you will need to sign-in via https://myapps.microsoft.com/ or your Office 365 portal or you can find a direct URL for the app on the Manage => Properties section on the Azure application in the “User access URL” field.

 

Am i the only one who finds this frustrating ?

To an external non-Cisco Idp, correct.

 

I see Cisco SecureX is supported for login from the dashboard.  Cisco SecureX appears to support Office 365 login.  So you might be able to do it via that long path.

mm that's a bummer, i would expect it to work like most SSO applications do; just from the dashboard of the product.

Ran into the same issue.  I finished setting up SAML with Azure and couldn't figure out how to login lol.  It appears they didn't add that final step to the instructions.  This is the first time I've had to go through Office 365 to log into one of my SAML configured apps.  Does Cisco SecureX require additional licenses?

Not for authentication.  You can just sign up and start using it.
