    Note: In order for the next step to work, the Metasys UI must be accessed using a URL in the browser address bar that was added in the Redirect URI field. For example, https://localhost/ui/ does not work unless it was also added.
  9. This brings up the default page for Active Directory. Log on with your email address and password. This redirects you back to the Metasys UI and automatically logs you in after the Active Directory authenticates your credentials.
