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

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

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to Chatwork.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Chatwork 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.
  • Chatwork single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Scenario description

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

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

  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 Chatwork in the search box.
  6. Select Chatwork 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 SSO for Chatwork

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Chatwork 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 Chatwork.

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

  1. Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
    1. Create an Azure AD test user - to test Azure AD single sign-on with B.Simon.
    2. Assign the Azure AD test user - to enable B.Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
  2. Configure Chatwork SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create Chatwork test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in Chatwork that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
  3. Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.

Configure Azure AD SSO

Follow these steps to enable Azure AD SSO in the Azure portal.

  1. In the Azure portal, on the Chatwork application integration page, find the Manage section and select single sign-on.

  2. On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.

  3. On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, click the edit/pen icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.

    Edit Basic SAML Configuration

  4. On the Basic SAML Configuration section, enter the values for the following fields:

    In the Sign-on URL text box, type a URL using the following pattern: https://www.chatwork.com/s/<TENANT_NAME>

    Note

    The value is not real. Update the value with the private login URL which you set after Chatwork SSO configuration.

  5. Chatwork application expects the value of Unique User Identifier attribute matches the email address registered in Chatwork. The attribute is mapped to user.principalname by default. If the principalname is different from the email address, map Unique User Identifier to user.mail.

  6. On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Certificate (Base64) and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.
