Tutorial: Configure Proxyclick for automatic user provisioning

The objective of this tutorial is to demonstrate the steps to be performed in Proxyclick and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to configure Azure AD to automatically provision and de-provision users and/or groups to Proxyclick.

Note

This tutorial describes a connector built on top of the Azure AD User Provisioning Service. For important details on what this service does, how it works, and frequently asked questions, see Automate user provisioning and deprovisioning to SaaS applications with Azure Active Directory.

This connector is currently in Public Preview. For more information on the general Microsoft Azure terms of use for Preview features, see Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews.

Prerequisites

The scenario outlined in this tutorial assumes that you already have the following prerequisites:

Before configuring Proxyclick for automatic user provisioning with Azure AD, you need to add Proxyclick from the Azure AD application gallery to your list of managed SaaS applications.

To add Proxyclick from the Azure AD application gallery, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Azure portal, in the left navigation panel, select Azure Active Directory.

    The Azure Active Directory button

  2. Go to Enterprise applications, and then select All applications.

    The Enterprise applications blade

  3. To add a new application, select the New application button at the top of the pane.

    The New application button

  4. In the search box, enter Proxyclick, select Proxyclick in the results panel, and then click the Add button to add the application.

Assigning users to Proxyclick

Azure Active Directory uses a concept called assignments to determine which users should receive access to selected apps. In the context of automatic user provisioning, only the users and/or groups that have been assigned to an application in Azure AD are synchronized.

Before configuring and enabling automatic user provisioning, you should decide which users and/or groups in Azure AD need access to Proxyclick. Once decided, you can assign these users and/or groups to Proxyclick by following the instructions here:

Important tips for assigning users to Proxyclick

  • It is recommended that a single Azure AD user is assigned to Proxyclick to test the automatic user provisioning configuration. Additional users and/or groups may be assigned later.

  • When assigning a user to Proxyclick, you must select any valid application-specific role (if available) in the assignment dialog. Users with the Default Access role are excluded from provisioning.

Configuring automatic user provisioning to Proxyclick

This section guides you through the steps to configure the Azure AD provisioning service to create, update, and disable users and/or groups in Proxyclick based on user and/or group assignments in Azure AD.

Tip

You may also choose to enable SAML-based single sign-on for Proxyclick, following the instructions provided in the Proxyclick single sign-on tutorial. Single sign-on can be configured independently of automatic user provisioning, though these two features compliment each other.

To configure automatic user provisioning for Proxyclick in Azure AD:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal. Select Enterprise Applications, then select All applications.

    Enterprise applications blade

  2. In the applications list, select Proxyclick.

    The Proxyclick link in the Applications list

  3. Select the Provisioning tab.

    Provisioning tab

  4. Set the Provisioning Mode to Automatic.

  5. To retrieve the Tenant URL and Secret Token of your Proxyclick account, follow the walkthrough as described in Step 6.

  6. Sign in to your Proxyclick Admin Console. Navigate to Settings > Integrations > Browse Marketplace.

    Proxyclick Settings

    Proxyclick Integrations

    Proxyclick Marketplace

    Select Azure AD. Click Install now.

    Proxyclick Azure AD

    Proxyclick Install

    Select User Provisioning and click Start integration.

    Proxyclick User Provisioning

    The appropriate settings configuration UI should now show up under Settings > Integrations. Select Settings under Azure AD (User Provisioning).

    Proxyclick Create

    You can find the Tenant URL and Secret Token here.

    Proxyclick Create Token

  7. Upon populating the fields shown in Step 5, click Test Connection to ensure Azure AD can connect to Proxyclick. If the connection fails, ensure your Proxyclick account has Admin permissions and try again.

  8. In the Notification Email field, enter the email address of a person or group who should receive the provisioning error notifications and check the checkbox - Send an email notification when a failure occurs.

  9. Click Save.

  10. Under the Mappings section, select Synchronize Azure Active Directory Users to Proxyclick.

    Proxyclick User Mappings

  11. Review the user attributes that are synchronized from Azure AD to Proxyclick in the Attribute Mapping section. The attributes selected as Matching properties are used to match the user accounts in Proxyclick for update operations. Select the Save button to commit any changes.

  12. To configure scoping filters, refer to the following instructions provided in the Scoping filter tutorial.

  13. To enable the Azure AD provisioning service for Proxyclick, change the Provisioning Status to On in the Settings section.

    Provisioning Status Toggled On

  14. Define the users and/or groups that you would like to provision to Proxyclick by choosing the desired values in Scope in the Settings section.

    Provisioning Scope

  15. When you are ready to provision, click Save.

    Saving Provisioning Configuration

This operation starts the initial synchronization of all users and/or groups defined in Scope in the Settings section. The initial sync takes longer to perform than subsequent syncs, which occur approximately every 40 minutes as long as the Azure AD provisioning service is running. You can use the Synchronization Details section to monitor progress and follow links to provisioning activity report, which describes all actions performed by the Azure AD provisioning service on Proxyclick.

For more information on how to read the Azure AD provisioning logs, see Reporting on automatic user account provisioning.

Connector Limitations

  • Proxyclick requires emails and userName to have the same source value. Any updates to either attributes will modify the other value.
  • Proxyclick does not support provisioning for groups.
