Tutorial: Integrate Otsuka Shokai with Azure Active Directory

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

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to Otsuka Shokai.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Otsuka Shokai with their Azure AD accounts.

To learn more about SaaS app integration with Azure AD, see What is application access and single sign-on with Azure Active Directory.

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.
  • Otsuka Shokai single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Scenario description

In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment. Otsuka Shokai supports IDP initiated SSO.

To configure the integration of Otsuka Shokai into Azure AD, you need to add Otsuka Shokai 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 Otsuka Shokai in the search box.
  6. Select Otsuka Shokai from results panel and then add the app. Wait a few seconds while the app is added to your tenant.
  7. Click on Properties tab, copy the Application ID and save it on your computer for subsequent use.

Configure and test Azure AD single sign-on

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Otsuka Shokai 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 Otsuka Shokai.

To configure and test Azure AD SSO with Otsuka Shokai, complete the following building blocks:

  1. Configure Azure AD SSO to enable your users to use this feature.
  2. Configure Otsuka Shokai to configure the SSO settings on application side.
  3. Create an Azure AD test user to test Azure AD single sign-on with B. Simon.
  4. Assign the Azure AD test user to enable B. Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
  5. Create Otsuka Shokai test user to have a counterpart of B. Simon in Otsuka Shokai that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
  6. 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 Otsuka Shokai 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 edit/pen icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.

    Edit Basic SAML Configuration

  4. On the Set up Single Sign-On with SAML page, the application is pre-configured and the necessary URLs are already pre-populated with Azure. The user needs to save the configuration by clicking the Save button.

  5. Otsuka Shokai application expects the SAML assertions in a specific format, which requires you to add custom attribute mappings to your SAML token attributes configuration. The following screenshot shows the list of default attributes, where as nameidentifier is mapped with user.userprincipalname. Otsuka Shokai application expects nameidentifier to be mapped with user.objectid, so you need to edit the attribute mapping by clicking on Edit icon and change the attribute mapping.

  6. In addition to above, Otsuka Shokai application expects few more attributes to be passed back in SAML response. In the User Claims section on the User Attributes dialog, perform the following steps to add SAML token attribute as shown in the below table:

    Name Source Attribute
    Appid <Application ID>

    Note

    <Application ID> is the value which you have copied from the Properties tab of Azure portal.

    a. Click Add new claim to open the Manage user claims dialog.

    b. In the Name textbox, type the attribute name shown for that row.

    c. Leave the Namespace blank.

    d. Select Source as Attribute.

    e. From the Source attribute list, type the attribute value shown for that row.

    f. Click Ok

    g. Click Save.

Configure Otsuka Shokai

  1. When you connect to Customer's My Page from SSO app, the wizard of SSO setting starts.

  2. If Otsuka ID is not registered, proceed to Otsuka-ID new registration. If you have registered Otsuka-ID, proceed to the linkage setting.

  3. Proceed to the end and when the top screen is displayed after logging in to Customer's My Page, the SSO settings are complete.

  4. The next time you connect to Customer's My Page from the SSO app, after the guidance screen opens, the top screen is displayed after logging in to Customer's My Page.

Create an Azure AD test user

In this section, you'll create a test user in the Azure portal called B. Simon.

  1. From the left pane in the Azure portal, select Azure Active Directory, select Users, and then select All users.
  2. Select New user at the top of the screen.
  3. In the User properties, follow these steps:
    1. In the Name field, enter B. Simon.
    2. In the User name field, enter the username@companydomain.extension. For example, B.Simon@contoso.com.
    3. Select the Show password check box, and then write down the value that's displayed in the Password box.
    4. Click Create.

Assign the Azure AD test user

In this section, you'll enable B. Simon to use Azure single sign-on by granting access to Otsuka Shokai.

  1. In the Azure portal, select Enterprise Applications, and then select All applications.

  2. In the applications list, select Otsuka Shokai.

  3. In the app's overview page, find the Manage section and select Users and groups.

    The "Users and groups" link

  4. Select Add user, then select Users and groups in the Add Assignment dialog.

    The Add User link

  5. In the Users and groups dialog, select B. Simon from the Users list, then click the Select button at the bottom of the screen.

  6. If you're expecting any role value in the SAML assertion, in the Select Role dialog, select the appropriate role for the user from the list and then click the Select button at the bottom of the screen.

  7. In the Add Assignment dialog, click the Assign button.

Create Otsuka Shokai test user

New registration of SaaS account will be performed at the first access to Otsuka Shokai. In addition, we will also associate Azure AD account and SaaS account at the time of new creation.

Test SSO

When you select the Otsuka Shokai tile in the Access Panel, you should be automatically signed in to the Otsuka Shokai for which you set up SSO. For more information about the Access Panel, see Introduction to the Access Panel.
