7. Next add an entry under “Redirect URI”, first select "Web" from the dropdown. The URI should be your server FQDN followed by “/users/auth/azure_ad/callback” (eg. https://[your server FQDN]/users/auth/azure_ad/callback). Click “Register”.

8. Your application that will facilitate the single sign-on with NetBeez has been created and you should now see it under “Enterprise applications”. Click on the application.

9. Under “Single sign-on” located in the left navigation sidebar you should see some content about “OpenID Connect”, in that content, there is a link that should match the name you gave your application. Click that link.
