With this integration, businesses can now use Azure AD to automatically provision and manage employee access to Slack, based on things like group membership or account status. In addition to provisioning user accounts, Azure AD can also create and manage groups inside of Slack, based on groups in Azure AD and Active Directory.
As one of the featured apps in the Azure AD app gallery, Azure AD also supports fully-federated single sign-on with Slack, in addition to an easy click-through setup for admins.
See our documentation for more information on

. The Azure AD Integration is available for customers on Slack's Plus plan or those using their recently-announced Enterprise Grid product.
We'd like to thank the Slack team for their great partnership and support in delivering this integration, and look forward to continuing our work with them to deliver great experiences for our mutual customers!
