Tutorial: Azure Active Directory integration with Druva

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

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

  • You can control in Azure AD who has access to Druva.
  • You can enable your users to automatically get signed-on to Druva (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 Druva, you need the following items:

  • An Azure AD subscription
  • A Druva 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.

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 Druva from the gallery
  2. Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

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

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

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

    The Azure Active Directory button

  2. Navigate to Enterprise applications. Then go to All applications.

    The Enterprise applications blade

  3. To add new application, click New application button on the top of dialog.

    The New application button

  4. In the search box, type Druva, select Druva from result panel then click Add button to add the application.

    Druva in the results list

Configure and test Azure AD single sign-on

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

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

In Druva, 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 Druva, you need to complete the following building blocks:

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

Configure Azure AD single sign-on

In this section, you enable Azure AD single sign-on in the Azure portal and configure single sign-on in your Druva application.

To configure Azure AD single sign-on with Druva, perform the following steps:
