This guide should be used as a functional example only. Identity Admins should follow their Company's policies and best practices when implementing Single Sign-On (SSO).

Similarly, because these guides are for services Horizon3 does not control, screenshots and configuration options may be different then what you see here.

All sections of this page should be completed by someone with the Identity Team Admin Persona

Create Azure Enterprise Application

Log into Azure Portal and browse to the "Azure Active Directory" service.

In the left hand menu under the "Manage" section, click "Enterprise applications".

Then click "New Application".

Then click "Create your own application".

Required Role

You will need to have one of the following Azure AD roles in order to create a new application

Global Administrator
Application Administrator

Name your app "NodeZero Portal".

Select the "Register an application to integrate with Azure AD (App you're developing)" option.

Click Create.

On the "Register an application" page, you can choose to set a different user-facing name for the app, if desired.

After registering the app, you'll be taken back to the "Browse Azure AD Gallery" page. Navigate back to the Enterprise applications page, find your newly created app, and click it.

Provide Information to Org Admin

Provide the Client ID, Client Secret, and Issuer URL you copied in previous steps to your Portal Org Admin so they can configure the SSO Provider in Portal. After the SSO Provider has been set up, your Portal Org Admin will need to provide you the Initiator URL so you can complete the app configuration.

To grant users access to your new app, you will first need to navigate back to the Enterprise applications page we visited at the beginning of this guide.

Under the Manage section, click Users and groups.

Click Add user/group.

Select the appropriate users/groups.

Select the "NodeZero Portal Users" app role we created in a previous step.

By default, the app will not appear for assigned users within MyApps. You will need to edit the visibility and assignment properties of the app.

Under the Manage section, click Properties.

Slide the toggle to "Yes" for both Assignment required? and Visible to users?.

It can take 5 - 10 minutes for the app to appear in MyApps.

At this point, users can access by navigating to MyApps, logging in with their company credentials, and selecting the NodeZero Portal application tile.
