Tutorial: Azure Active Directory integration with SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System

In this tutorial, you learn how to integrate SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

Integrating SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System with Azure AD provides you with the following benefits:

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

  • An Azure AD subscription
  • A SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System 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 SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System from the gallery
  2. Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

    Creating an Azure AD test user

  5. In the results panel, select SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System, 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 SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System based on a test user called "Britta Simon."

For single sign-on to work, Azure AD needs to know what the counterpart user in SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System is to a user in Azure AD. In other words, a link relationship between an Azure AD user and the related user in SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System 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 SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System.

To configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System, 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 SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System test user - to have a counterpart of Britta Simon in SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System 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 SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System application.

To configure Azure AD single sign-on with SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Azure portal, on the SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System 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 SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System Domain and URLs section, no need to perform any steps as the app is already pre-integrated with Azure:

    Configure Single Sign-On

  4. On the SAML Signing Certificate section, click Certificate(Base64) and then save the certificate file on your computer.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  5. Click Save button.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  6. On the SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System Configuration section, click Configure SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System to open Configure sign-on window. Copy the Sign-Out URL, SAML Entity ID and SAML Single Sign-On Service URL from the Quick Reference section.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  7. Sign on to your SensoScientific Wireless Temperature Monitoring System application as an administrator.

  8. In the navigation menu on the top, click Configuration and goto Configure under Single Sign On to open the Single Sign On Settings.

    Configure Single Sign-On

  9. In Single Sign On Settings form perform the following steps:

    a. Select Issuer Name as Azure AD.

    b. Paste the SAML Entity ID which you have copied from Azure portal into Issuer URL textbox.

    c. Paste the SAML Single Sign-On Service URL which you have copied from Azure portal into Single Sign-On Service URL textbox.

    d. Paste the Sign-Out URL which you have copied from Azure portal into Single Sign-Out Service URL textbox.

    e. Browse the certificate which you have downloaded from Azure portal and upload here.

    f. Click Save.

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.
