Activation with Azure AD
If your organization has opted in for a more seamless user experience using a Local IdP, users won't receive emails from MitID Erhverv as part of the activation process. Additionally, activation links won't expire, and the full activation process will occur as part of their workflow. Furthermore, they will benefit from a single sign-on experience, allowing them to sign in just once.
Once a user is assigned to an access-granting Azure Group, they become eligible for a MitID Erhverv business identity. No further action is required on your part. The first time the user visits a website, such as SKAT.dk or VIRK.dk, they must complete the activation process outlined below. After completing these steps, their business identity will be activated, enabling them to continue with their work. On subsequent visits, they can proceed to the website without any further ado.
Assign the user to an access-granting Azure Group, making them eligible for a MitID Erhverv business identity.
