SolarWinds Mail Assure: February 11th Features and Updates Release

What’s new this week:

Improved OAuth2/OpenID Connect (SSO) support for email users

In this update, the ability to use OAuth2/OpenID Connect to provide a single-sign-on service for email users has been significantly improved, and now works with common identity providers such as Office365. The feature is available for accounts with a custom branded hostname.

To use this functionality, OAuth2/OpenID Connect must first be configured on the domain. To do this, go to the “Domains overview” page, and use the “Configure” action for the domain that you wish to use OAuth2/OpenID Connect with. Next, go to the “Users & Permissions” section in the menu, and choose “OAuth Settings”. You’ll need to enter the OAuth2/OpenID Connect settings from the identity provider here (e.g. details for Office365).

Once you’ve configured OAuth2/OpenID Connect for all the domains you wish to have this functionality, go to your brand settings, and enable the “SSO/OAuth login for email users” setting. You’ll get the option to label the new “log in” button that appears on the main login page on your custom hostname, e.g. “Log in with Office365”.
