Ultimate SSO / SAML configuration guide in FlexNet Manager Suite

What is the support or configuration requirements for using AAD to allow users SSO login across FNMS Cloud edition and the rest of the Flexera Products. 

Is there and will there be any support for this?

Not sure about SSO, but AAD does work with FNMS Windows Authentication.

Azure AD SAML is a supported Identity Provider (IdP). Currently, no specific guide is available in the community for configuration on Azure side. There should be plenty of documentations available from Microsoft/other online sources for this.

As to the values you need to provide in Azure (Entity ID, Sign-on URL, etc.) - the Okta configuration guide, while it's written for a different IdP, will be a helpful reference document to provide to the team/person responsible for setting up SAML application in your Azure environment. You will then be able to download the metadata file from Azure.

Once you have the metadata file - to configure SAML in FlexNet Manager Suite Cloud, simply upload your metadata file via Web UI > System Settings > Security page. For more comprehensive guide or for on-premise guide see WebUI configuration guide OR the parent page you referred:
