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

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

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

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.
  • Jive 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 Jive into Azure AD, you need to add Jive 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 Jive in the search box.
  6. Select Jive 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 Jive

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Jive 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 Jive.

To configure and test Azure AD SSO with Jive, perform the following steps:

  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 Jive SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create Jive test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in Jive 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 Jive 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 pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.

Create Jive test user

The objective of this section is to create a user called Britta Simon in Jive. Jive supports automatic user provisioning, which is by default enabled. You can find more details here on how to configure automatic user provisioning.

If you need to create user manually, work with Jive Client support team to add the users in the Jive platform.

Test SSO

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 Jive Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.

  • Go to Jive Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.

  • You can use Microsoft My Apps. When you click the Jive tile in the My Apps, this will redirect to Jive Sign-on URL. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.

Next steps

Once you configure Jive 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.
