Neat Pulse and Single Sign On (SSO) with Microsoft setup guide


Last Updated on December 21, 2023 by GrahamWalsh

To setup Neat Pulse Single Sign on with Microsoft AzureAD/Entra ID(SSO), simply follow these steps

  1. Accept the invite from the Pulse Sign Up email and select Microsoft as the login method. You will then have to request permissions for the Enterprise Application (depending on your level of permissions).
  2. If you have the appropriate permissions, then you can accept the invite straight away.

If you don’t have the required permissions to approve an Enterprise Application, you will then see this next screen. You will need to contact your Azure AD/Entra ID team for them to approve the enterprise application. I would make sense to request them be added to Neat Pulse too, so contact your Neat representative to get them invited to the Neat Pulse tenant.

The good news is that you can submit a request for access if you have approval process in your organisation.

The app will then send a request to your Azure AD/Entra ID team for approval. Consent is done on behalf of the organisation. You will then get a mail to show that you’ve requested access.

The level of permissions requires is as follows: OpenID, Basic Profile and email address.

The Azure AD/Entra ID team will also get an email of your request.

Once logged into Azure AD/Entra ID, they can review the request

They can then sign in with an admin account with the appropriate permissions.

The next page shows the overview of the request and an Accept button.

The Neat Pulse SSO Application is then approved to be used on the customer tenant.

Once the above is done, the requestor is then sent an email to show that they can now use the SSO application.

Now you can go back to your original email and accept the invite again

Then sign in with Microsoft SSO

Now you can enter your display name and that’s it, you’ve got access to Neat Pulse using Microsoft SSO.

Now you can add devices to your Pulse tenant and have the devices enrolled.
