  14. Sentry will attempt to authenticate and link your account with Azure. After successful authentication, you'll be redirected to Sentry's SSO configuration page, where you can take the following actions:

    • You can share the "Login URL" value, which will be used for SP-initiated SSO, with the users in your organization.

    • Scroll down to the bottom and ensure that "Require SSO" is checked if you want to enforce logging in with Azure Active Directory.

    • Set a "Default Role" for new SSO users. Selecting "Member" should cover most use cases.

    • If you made changes, click "Save Settings" to complete your setup.

This feature is only available if your organization is on a Business or Enterprise plan; it is not available on Trial plans.

Sentry users can manage provisioning using Azure with SCIM. You'll need to have Azure SSO set up and configured for your organization already. Sentry supports User and Group provisioning with Azure.

  1. Sign in to Select Settings > Auth

We recommend that you select the option to "Send an email notification when a failure occurs".

As a result of these changes, users who are assigned will be sent an invitation email. When a user is un-assigned, their membership object in Sentry will be deleted.

You can use Use Group Provisioning to sync and assign groups in Azure; they will be reflected in Sentry teams.

Please see the Microsoft AD tutorial for further documentation on Azure provisioning setup. If you are using a custom enterprise application, you must follow the instructions for only enabling attribute mappings that Sentry supports (Step 5).
