Collabor8 hello


Collabor8 Hello have been replaced by Microsoft Entra ID

Offshore Norge is completing the process to replace Collabor8 Hello as identity provider and authentication mechanism in the Collabor8 portfolio.

The service will be replaced by standard Microsoft identity and access functionality called Entra ID, formerly known as Azure Active Directory.

For you as a user organisation the benefits will be:

  • Simplified user experience for end users
  • Simplified user administration (user onboarding/offboarding) for your service user administrators

The new replacement solution will ensure that integrity and security level is kept intact and improved.

As the new authentication mechanism will be tightly integrated within each Collabor8 service, Collabor8 Hello will no longer be listed as a separate service in the Collabor8 family. This also means that the concept of Collabor8 Hello company administration is ended.

What is Microsoft Entra ID?

Microsoft Entra ID is the new name for Azure AD.

Entra ID is Microsoft’s cloud product to enable users to enter any application or resource with their identity, regardless of where they are or what device they use.

What is Azure AD? What is Entra ID?

In 2023 Microsoft changed the name Azure AD to Azure Entra ID, so it is the same.

Microsoft Entra is the name for the product family of identity and network access solutions. Microsoft Entra ID is one of the products within that family.

Can I get access on behalf of multiple companies?

Microsoft Entra ID uses your company ID for authentication. If you need to access a Collabor8 service on behalf of more than one company, it is required that a user is issued by each of the companies you are representing.

Who will handle user access for my company for my various applications/services?

Your company’s defined Company Super User(s) for each service will retain permissions to append and amend users for your company.

Alternatively, technical support for the relevant service may assist in this process, on request
