Tutorial: Azure AD SSO integration with Javelo
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate Javelo with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate Javelo with Azure AD, you can:
- Control in Azure AD who has access to Javelo.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Javelo with their Azure AD accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.
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.
- Javelo single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.
- Along with Cloud Application Administrator, Application Administrator can also add or manage applications in Azure AD. For more information, see Azure built-in roles.
In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.
- Javelo supports SP initiated SSO.
- Javelo supports Just In Time user provisioning.
Identifier of this application is a fixed string value so only one instance can be configured in one tenant.
Add Javelo from the gallery
To configure the integration of Javelo into Azure AD, you need to add Javelo from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.
- Sign in to the Azure portal using either a work or school account, or a personal Microsoft account.
- On the left navigation pane, select the Azure Active Directory service.
- Navigate to Enterprise Applications and then select All Applications.
- To add new application, select New application.
- In the Add from the gallery section, type Javelo in the search box.
- Select Javelo 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 Javelo
Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Javelo 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 Javelo.
To configure and test Azure AD SSO with Javelo, perform the following steps:
- Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
- Configure Javelo SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
- Create Javelo test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in Javelo that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
- Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.

Create Javelo test user
In this section, a user called B.Simon is created in Javelo. Javelo 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 Javelo, a new one is created after authentication.
In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration with following options.
Click on Test this application in Azure portal. This will redirect to Javelo Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.
Go to Javelo Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.
You can use Microsoft My Apps. When you click the Javelo tile in the My Apps, this will redirect to Javelo Sign-on URL. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.
Once you configure Javelo 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 Defender for Cloud Apps.
