Tutorial: Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with GoToMeeting
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate GoToMeeting with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate GoToMeeting with Azure AD, you can:
- Control in Azure AD who has access to GoToMeeting.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to GoToMeeting with their Azure AD accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.
To learn more about SaaS app integration with Azure AD, see What is application access and single sign-on with Azure Active Directory.
To get started, you need the following items:
- An Azure AD subscription. If you don't have a subscription, you can get a free account.
- GoToMeeting single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.
In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.
- GoToMeeting supports IDP initiated SSO.
- Once you configure the GoToMeeting you can enforce session controls, which protect exfiltration and infiltration of your organization’s sensitive data in real-time. Session controls extend from Conditional Access. Learn how to enforce session control with Microsoft Cloud App Security
Adding GoToMeeting from the gallery
To configure the integration of GoToMeeting into Azure AD, you need to add GoToMeeting from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.

Configure and test Azure AD single sign-on for GoToMeeting
Configure and test Azure AD SSO with GoToMeeting using a test user called B.Simon. For SSO to work, you need to establish a link relationship between an Azure AD user and the related user in GoToMeeting.
To configure and test Azure AD SSO with GoToMeeting, complete the following building blocks:
- Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
- Configure GoToMeeting SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
- Create GoToMeeting test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in GoToMeeting that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
- Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.
Configure Azure AD SSO
Follow these steps to enable Azure AD SSO in the Azure portal.
In the Azure portal, on the GoToMeeting application integration page, find the Manage section and select single sign-on.

In a different browser window, log in to your GoToMeeting Organization Center. You will be prompted to confirm that the IdP has been updated.
Enable the "My Identity Provider has been updated with the new domain" checkbox. Click Done when finished.
Create GoToMeeting test user
In this section, a user called Britta Simon is created in GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting supports just-in-time provisioning, which is enabled by default.
There is no action item for you in this section. If a user doesn't already exist in GoToMeeting, a new one is created when you attempt to access GoToMeeting.
If you need to create a user manually, Contact GoToMeeting support team.
In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration using the Access Panel.
When you click the GoToMeeting tile in the Access Panel, you should be automatically signed in to the GoToMeeting for which you set up SSO. For more information about the Access Panel, see Introduction to the Access Panel.
