    1. You can enter “Guru” as the name of the App.

  1. Next, under the “Manage” section on the left-hand column, select Single Sign On: SAML.

  2. For Step #1 on the “Set up Single Sign-On with SAML,” retrieve the Single Sign On URL and Audience URI from your Guru SSO page.

    1. In Azure, edit the configuration by setting Identifier (Entity ID) as the Audience URI from Guru and Reply URL as the Single Sign on URL from Guru.

  3. For Step #2 on that page, ensure that the configuration replicates the below screenshot.

    1. Identity Provider Single Sign-On Url is Login URL.
