Here's how to set up Single Sign-On (SSO) via SAML for the Office 365® application.Step 1: Set up Office 365 as a SAML 2.0 service provider (SP)
From the Admin console dashboard, go to Security Set up single sign-on (SSO).
To see Security, you might have to click More controls at the bottom.
- Click the Download button to download the Google IdP metadata and the X.509 Certificate.
- In a new browser tab, log into your Office 365 application as an administrator.
- Set up a federation of your On-Premises Active Directory and Azure Active Directory.
You must set up the federation to execute the Active Directory PowerShell commands. Refer to the Microsoft Active Directory documentation online for more information.
- Configure the IdP certificates and set the URL using the Active Directory PowerShell on your federated Active Directory Domain.
- Proceed to the next section to set up Google as a SAML identity provider (IdP).
- In a new browser tab, sign in to your Admin console as a super administrator.
- Click Apps > SAML apps.
- Click the plus (+) icon in the bottom corner.
- Select the Office 365 item from the list. The values on the Google IDP Information page automatically populate.
- There are two ways to collect the service provider Setup information: you can copy the Entity ID and the Single Sign-On URL field values and download the X.509 Certificate, paste them into the appropriate service provider Setup fields, and then click Next, or you can download the IDP metadata, upload it into the appropriate service provider Setup fields, and then come back to the admin console and click Next.

When the Signed Response checkbox is unchecked, only the assertion is signed. When the Signed Response checkbox is checked, the entire response is signed.
