Is it possible to use AWS Cognito instead of Azure AD to authenticate users in SharePoint Online? Is there a workaround?

I didn't find anything. I could only find how to use SharePoint Online with Azure AD and Cognito. I could also find Cognito Forms.

My question is about if it is possible without Azure AD and how. A manual would be sufficient.

Best regards



Office 365 doesn't exist without Azure AD. You cannot remove that dependency. With that being said, you're free to use other IdPs to perform authentication.

With some simple searches, I found the following that may be useful.

With those out of the way, AWS SSO would be the proper solution for this as it is designed to act as an IdP.
