Organizations may use Microsoft Active Directory to manage employee access to apps like Play Digital Signage.

Organizations may use Microsoft Active Directory to manage employee access to apps like Play Digital Signage. This tutorial will cover how to set up the Play Digital Signage app in your Active Directory tenant.

If you want to use your personal Microsoft account to access Play Digital Signage and don’t need to manage employee access within your AzureAD tenant, you can skip this tutorial, and sign up here.

In order to complete this tutorial, you will need the following:

  1. Existing Azure Active Directory tenant (if you don’t have one, you may sign up here)
  2. Your user must have a Global Administrator role for the Azure AD tenant

1. Install Play Digital Signage using Azure Marketplace

As a global Azure AD tenant administrator, start by clicking “New Application” on the “Enterprise Applications” page.

Once you pick an account, you will be presented with a page, listing all permissions that Play Digital Signage requires from you in order to complete the signup. If you wish, you can consent to those permissions on behalf of your whole organization, so that your co-workers won’t have to make this choice again.

Review the permissions, and if you agree, click “Accept” to create a new Play Digital Signage account for your tenant. Your user will be considered the owner of that account, and all subsequent users that sign up from your tenant will have a member role (you can change this later).

2. Manage Access

Once you follow through with the installation process, you will see Play Digital Signage in the list of your Enterprise Applications. From there, you can further manage access to Play Digital Signage if you wish because, by default, a freshly installed instance of our application does not require any user assignments.

Once you are satisfied with your setup, you can point your co-workers to our login page and ask them to click “Login with Microsoft” and select their work account. Your co-workers will automatically become members of your team in Play Digital Signage. If you want to change their user role, you can do that on the team page.
