In Azure AD create a native application, the Redirect URI must be urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob

In CM Enterprise Studio select your database and from the context menu choose Authentication, then go to the ADFS / Azure tab. In this tab set:

  • Authorize Endpoint URL to OAuth 2.0 Authorization Endpoint
  • Token Endpoint URL to OAuth 2.0 Token Endpoint
  • Client Id to the Application ID (in the Azure AD application you created)
  • Relying Party Trust also set to the Application ID

If you press Test Authenticate you should be able to authenticate as one of the users in Azure AD.
