SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) For Shopify Using Azure AD as IDP
miniOrange allows Azure AD to act as an IDP (Identity Provider), which allows users to
Single Sign-On (SSO) into Shopify using (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD Credentials. Our application
is compatible with
all the SAML / OAuth compliant
Identity Providers. We will go through a step-by-step guide to configure Single Sign-On (SSO) into
Shopify using (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD as IdP (Identity Provider) and
Shopify store as
SP (Service Provider).
Pre-requisite : Single Sign On - SSO Application
To configure SSO into Shopify using (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD as IDP, you will need to install the
miniOrange Single Sign On - SSO Login Application on your Shopify store:
Enter the name for your app, then select Non-gallery application section and click on Create
Click on Setup Single sign-on .
Select the SAML tab.
Click on Edit.
For the above
SAML configuration you need to get the Entity ID and ACS URL from Shopify
Now go to your Shopify store and navigate to App section and click on Single Sign On - SSO
Click on Setup IDP button in the top left in navigation bar.
Click on Configure SSO >> Add Identity Provider.
Select SAML protocol. Now click on the Click here link to get miniOrange metadata as shown in
For SP - INITIATED SSO section Select Show Metadata Details.
Enter the values in basic SAML configuration as shown in below screen
Identifier (Entity ID)
Entity ID or Issuer
Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL)
By default, the following Attributes will be sent in the SAML token. You can view or edit the claims
sent in the SAML token to the application under the Attributes tab.
Download Federation Metadata xml. This will be used while configuring the (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure
AD as IDP in Step 2.
Assign users and groups to your SAML application.
As a security control, (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD will not issue a token allowing a user to sign in to
the application unless
(Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD has granted access to the user. Users may be granted access directly, or
through group membership.
Click on Users and groups from the applications left-hand navigation menu. The next screen presents
the options for assigning the users/groups to the application.
After clicking on Add user, Select Users and groups in the Add Assignment screen.
The next screen presents the option for selecting user or invite an external user. Select the appropriate
user and click on the Select button.
Here, you can also assign a role to this user under Select Role section. Finally, click on
Assign button to assign that user or group to the SAML application.
You have successfully completed (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD side configuration.
2. Configure (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD as Identity Provider (IDP) in Shopify
Again navigate to the App section of Shopify store and click on Single Sign On - SSO
Click on Setup IDP button in the top left in navigation bar.
From the left navigation bar select Configure SSO and click on Add Identity Provider.
Select SAML and click on Import IDP metadata.
Choose appropriate IDP name. Browse for the file downloaded in step 1.
Click on Import.
As shown in the below screen the IDP Entity ID, SAML SSO Login URL and x.509 Certificate will be
filled from the file imported.
Click on Save.
You have successfully completed Shopify side configuration.
3. Test Connection
Go to Configure SSO tab.
Click on Select>>Test Connection option against the Identity Provider you configured.
On entering valid (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure Ad credentials you will see a Test Successful window
which as shown in below
By default the Attribute Value i.e. "your email address" will be received in the NameID
Key Attribute field. In case if the Attribute Value is received in any other Key attribute field,
copy that key attribute. For example in the below image the Key:value pair is
"ABC":"email@example.com". Copy the Key attribute value i.e. ABC.
Click on Go back to Store button at top right corner.
Scroll down to Attribute mapping section and here in the Email field paste ABC.
4. Testing SSO for your Shopify Store
Go to your Shopify Store login page.(https://<your-shopify-storedomain>/account/login)
Click on the login button you customized earlier.
You’ll be redirected to the login page of the IDP you configured in previous step. Log in with your IDP
You’ll be successfully logged in to your Shopify store.
Hence your configuration of (Microsoft Entra ID) Azure AD as IDP in Shopify is successfully completed.
This may be because your primary domain would be different from your Shopify domain. To check your
primary domain and make SSO work, follow the steps given here.
