Microsoft Entra ID provider

Note: As of October 2023, Microsoft renamed Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to Microsoft Entra ID. This site has been updated to reflect the name change, where applicable. Refer to Microsoft documentation for more information.

Relativity can import Entity (Employee/Custodian) data from Microsoft Entra ID through Integration Points. In Relativity, you will need to install Integration Points into your workspace. Once Integration Points is installed, you’ll then need to install the Integration Points AD provider application. Completing these installations adds Integration Points to your workspace and adds Entra ID as a source within Integration Points.

The next step is to set up an application in Microsoft Azure which can be used to configure an Integration Point in Relativity. Only an Application Administrator with access can create an application, find credentials, and delete an application. If you don’t have permissions, contact your admin. For more information on Application Administrators, see Microsoft’s documentation.

The final step is to import Microsoft Entra ID into Relativity. For more information, see Importing from Microsoft Entra ID.
