Unable to sign into GP client with Azure AD SSO

L4 Transporter

Hi All,


Trying to setup Azure AD SSO with Global Protect, but am receiving the below error. According, to the Microsoft documentation it means that the user is not assigned to the application in Azure, but I can confirm that the user is assigned correctly to the application. Is there anything else I can check?



Thanks in advance.

@BPry @reaper Any ideas here?

From what you've posted, this isn't really a firewall issue. Something within your SSO configuration on the Microsoft side of things isn't configured/working properly. Off hand, the first thing that I would ask is just verifying that you aren't trying to use a nested group. Outside of that I would just open a support case with Microsoft since the error is on that side of things.

@BPry Thanks for the feedback. They have tested with a user in a group and a user directly assigned to the app. I have asked them to check Microsoft.
