Tutorial: Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with 123FormBuilder SSO

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate 123FormBuilder SSO with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate 123FormBuilder SSO with Azure AD, you can:

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to 123FormBuilder SSO.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed in to 123FormBuilder SSO with their Azure AD accounts.
  • Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.

To learn more about SaaS app integration with Azure AD, see What is application access and single sign-on with Azure Active Directory.

Prerequisites

To get started, you need the following items:

  • An Azure AD subscription. If you don't have a subscription, you can get a free account.
  • 123FormBuilder SSO single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Scenario description

In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.

  • 123FormBuilder SSO supports SP and IDP initiated SSO.
  • 123FormBuilder SSO supports Just In Time user provisioning.
  • Once you configure 123FormBuilder SSO you can enforce session control, which protects exfiltration and infiltration of your organization’s sensitive data in real time. Session control extends from Conditional Access. Learn how to enforce session control with Microsoft Cloud App Security.

To configure the integration of 123FormBuilder SSO into Azure AD, you need to add 123FormBuilder SSO from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal using either a work or school account, or a personal Microsoft account.
  2. On the left navigation pane, select the Azure Active Directory service.
  3. Navigate to Enterprise Applications and then select All Applications.
  4. To add new application, select New application.
  5. In the Add from the gallery section, type 123FormBuilder SSO in the search box.
  6. Select 123FormBuilder SSO from results panel and then add the app. Wait a few seconds while the app is added to your tenant.

Configure and test Azure AD single sign-on for 123FormBuilder SSO

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with 123FormBuilder SSO using a test user called B.Simon. For SSO to work, you need to establish a link relationship between an Azure AD user and the related user in 123FormBuilder SSO.

To configure and test Azure AD SSO with 123FormBuilder SSO, complete the following building blocks:

  1. Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
  2. Configure 123FormBuilder SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
  3. Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.

Create 123FormBuilder SSO test user

In this section, a user called Britta Simon is created in 123FormBuilder SSO. 123FormBuilder SSO supports just-in-time user provisioning, which is enabled by default. There is no action item for you in this section. If a user doesn't already exist in 123FormBuilder SSO, a new one is created after authentication.
