Azure SSO issue (Microsoft Office links)

    Question

  • Hi, I hope this is correct category/forum (first time using MSDN forum).

    I'm developing web app that is hosted on Azure. This web app allows user to download excel document that contains links to page on the website. Issue is that Microsoft Hyperlink Library (Hlink.dll) does not use existing session, so you just see error page (in my case unauthorized page).

    Reading through following article: "https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/899927", it seems that Microsoft Office blames SSO for not supporting this feature. So my question is, should Azure SSO (ADFS) be changed to support it or Azure should change it's SSO?

    Because of this issue with Azure SSO (according to Microsoft Office) we spend days developing this feature (development was done on the localhost, so issue didn't emerge until it was finished and handed over to test with real environment set up) to find out that such a simple thing as opening a link does not work (I would like to point that that both parties in question are Microsoft, not some third party).

    Will be grateful to hear from Microsoft.
