    NameExample Format

    Web Console Identifier (Entity ID)https://<FQDN_or_Hostname_or_IP_of_WebConsole>
    IdP Entry PointLogin URL copied from Azure AD.
    IdP CertificateCertificate (Base64) copied from Azure AD.
    Default User ProfileThe User Profile to be assigned via User Auto-Provisioning to new SSO users.
