Tutorial: Azure Active Directory integration with Kantega SSO for Bitbucket

In this tutorial, you learn how to integrate Kantega SSO for Bitbucket with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

Integrating Kantega SSO for Bitbucket with Azure AD provides you with the following benefits:

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

  • An Azure AD subscription
  • A Kantega SSO for Bitbucket 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 Kantega SSO for Bitbucket from the gallery
  2. Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

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

To add Kantega SSO for Bitbucket from the gallery, perform the following steps:

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

    Active Directory

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

    Applications

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

    Creating an Azure AD test user

  5. In the results panel, select Kantega SSO for Bitbucket, and then click Add button to add the application.

    Creating an Azure AD test user

Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

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

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

In Kantega SSO for Bitbucket, 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 Kantega SSO for Bitbucket, 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 Kantega SSO for Bitbucket test user - to have a counterpart of Britta Simon in Kantega SSO for Bitbucket 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

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