Global Protect Authentication with Azure AD SSO failing

L4 Transporter



I am receiving the below error when trying to sign into Global Protect using Azure AD SSO. This is being set up for the first time. Any ideas what this means or where I can look?

@Ben-Price , Hi 


Have you resolved this issue, I am getting the same issue, In GP logs I am seeing below error,


"Username from SAML SSO response is different from the input" 


Any thoughts ?
