Azure AD without ADFS

My understanding is that Azure AD is a configurable SAML2 SP which can federate to an IDP for a particular domain.  The federating of an IDP to a particular domain involves logging into your Azure AD admin and running a power-shell script which, I am assuming (in SAML2 SP speak) is consuming the provided IDP metadata, and then creating an application-override for the domain, then configuring that override to use that IDP.

All that to say that any options for adding additional IDPs to the federated domain in Azure AD, and/or configuring the domain for any kind of WAYF, would likely need to be answered by Microsoft Azure AD support/docs.

Hope this is helpful.

Is it possible to use Azure AD to ”federate” multiple Shibboleth IdPs? We don’t have our own and we do not plant to use an ADFS-server.
