Tutorial: Azure Active Directory integration with BlueJeans

In this tutorial, you learn how to integrate BlueJeans with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

Integrating BlueJeans with Azure AD provides you with the following benefits:

  • You can control in Azure AD who has access to BlueJeans
  • You can enable your users to automatically get signed-on to BlueJeans (Single Sign-On) with their Azure AD accounts
  • You can manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal

If you want to know more details about SaaS app integration with Azure AD, see what is application access and single sign-on with Azure Active Directory.

Prerequisites

To configure Azure AD integration with BlueJeans, you need the following items:

  • An Azure AD subscription
  • A BlueJeans single-sign on enabled subscription

Note

To test the steps in this tutorial, we do not recommend using a production environment.

To test the steps in this tutorial, you should follow these recommendations:

  • Do not use your production environment, unless it is necessary.
  • If you don't have an Azure AD trial environment, you can get a one-month trial here.

Scenario description

In this tutorial, you test Azure AD single sign-on in a test environment. The scenario outlined in this tutorial consists of two main building blocks:

  1. Adding BlueJeans from the gallery
  2. Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

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

To add BlueJeans from the gallery, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Azure portal, on the left navigation panel, click Azure Active Directory icon.

Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

In this section, you configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with BlueJeans based on a test user called "Britta Simon."

For single sign-on to work, Azure AD needs to know what the counterpart user in BlueJeans is to a user in Azure AD. In other words, a link relationship between an Azure AD user and the related user in BlueJeans needs to be established.

In BlueJeans, assign the value of the user name in Azure AD as the value of the Username to establish the link relationship.

To configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with BlueJeans, you need to complete the following building blocks:

  1. Configuring Azure AD Single Sign-On - to enable your users to use this feature.
  2. Creating an Azure AD test user - to test Azure AD single sign-on with Britta Simon.
  3. Creating a BlueJeans test user - to have a counterpart of Britta Simon in BlueJeans that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
  4. Assigning the Azure AD test user - to enable Britta Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
  5. Testing Single Sign-On - to verify whether the configuration works.

Configuring Azure AD single sign-on
