I've set up a couple apps with SAML and they work great. However, we're looking to switch users to the Microsoft 365 Business license really not sure what license we need for SAML auth to work. I set up one user with this license and it works but I've been trying to find some official information. Currently we use Office 365 Premium plus Enterprise Mobility + Security E3 and Office 365 ATP. It seems we could probably replace all those with Microsoft 365 Business but I want to be sure that we'll have this SAML feature afterward.

M365 comes with Azure AD P1, even the Business SKU has it, so you shouldn't need any additional SKUs. If you are talking about Office 365 Business, then you will need AAD P1 or equivalent EMS SKU.

@Vasil MichevYes, I'm asking about M365, not O365. It doesn't seem like that's entirely accurate which is why the answer is so difficult to find. Here's what I read in the FAQ
Microsoft 365 Business is built on technology from across Microsoft and while it shares some features with Azure Active Directory, it is not a full version. The security and management policies created in Microsoft 365 Business rely on some Azure functionality but does not include all features (e.g. self-service features, conditional access features, and reporting). Customers may choose to purchase Azure Active Directory Premium P1 or P2 as an add-on to Microsoft 365 Business. Please see the Microsoft 365 Business Service Description for more information
Can you tell by the Service Description if SAML is included or not?

The Azure AD pricing page makes it sound like I could use up to 10 apps from the gallery. One of the apps I set up was in the gallery but the instructions I received from the vendor had me create a new app. I could probably redo it using the gallery (pre-integrated) option if needed but still not sure if that's needed at this point. It seems to work fine at the moment.
