Tutorial: Azure Active Directory integration with Lecorpio

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

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

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

  • An Azure AD subscription
  • A Lecorpio 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 Lecorpio from the gallery
  2. Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

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

To add Lecorpio 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. Click New application button on the top of the dialog.

    Applications

  4. In the search box, type Lecorpio.

  5. In the results panel, select Lecorpio, and then click Add button to add the application.

Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

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

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

This link relationship is established by assigning the value of the user name in Azure AD as the value of the Username in Lecorpio.

To configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with Lecorpio, 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 Lecorpio test user - to have a counterpart of Britta Simon in Lecorpio 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 Lecorpio application.

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

  1. In the Azure portal, on the Lecorpio application integration page, click Single sign-on.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  2. On the Single sign-on dialog, select Mode as SAML-based Sign-on to enable single sign-on.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  3. On the Lecorpio Domain and URLs section, perform the following steps:

    Configure Single Sign-On

    a. In the Sign-on URL textbox, type the value using the following pattern: https://<instance name>.lecorpio.com/<customer name>

    b. In the Identifier textbox, type a URL using the following pattern: https://<instance name>.lecorpio.com/<customer name>

    Note

    These values are not the real. Update these values with the actual Sign-on URL and Identifier. Here we suggest you to use the unique value of string in the Identifier. Contact Lecorpio Client support team to get these values.

  4. On the SAML Signing Certificate section, click Metadata XML and then save the metadata file on your computer.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  5. Click Save button.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  6. To configure single sign-on on Lecorpio side, you need to send the downloaded Metadata XML to Lecorpio support team.

Tip

You can now read a concise version of these instructions inside the Azure portal, while you are setting up the app! After adding this app from the Active Directory > Enterprise Applications section, simply click the Single Sign-On tab and access the embedded documentation through the Configuration section at the bottom. You can read more about the embedded documentation feature here: Azure AD embedded documentation
