Tutorial: Azure AD SSO integration with Snackmagic

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

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to Snackmagic.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Snackmagic with their Azure AD accounts.
  • Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.


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.
  • Snackmagic single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Scenario description

In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.

  • Snackmagic supports SP and IDP initiated SSO.
  • Snackmagic supports Just In Time user provisioning.


Identifier of this application is a fixed string value so only one instance can be configured in one tenant.

To configure the integration of Snackmagic into Azure AD, you need to add Snackmagic 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 Snackmagic in the search box.
  6. Select Snackmagic from results panel and then add the app. Wait a few seconds while the app is added to your tenant.

Configure and test Azure AD SSO for Snackmagic

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Snackmagic 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 Snackmagic.

To configure and test Azure AD SSO with Snackmagic, perform the following steps:

  1. Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
    1. Create an Azure AD test user - to test Azure AD single sign-on with B.Simon.
    2. Assign the Azure AD test user - to enable B.Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
  2. Configure Snackmagic SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create Snackmagic test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in Snackmagic that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
  3. 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 Snackmagic application integration page, find the Manage section and select single sign-on.

  2. On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.

Create Snackmagic test user

In this section, a user called Britta Simon is created in Snackmagic. Snackmagic supports just-in-time user provisioning, which is enabled by default. There is no action item for you in this section. If a user doesn't already exist in Snackmagic, a new one is created after authentication.

Test SSO

In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration with following options.

SP initiated:

  • Click on Test this application in Azure portal. This will redirect to Snackmagic Sign on URL where you can initiate the login flow.

  • Go to Snackmagic Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.

IDP initiated:

  • Click on Test this application in Azure portal and you should be automatically signed in to the Snackmagic for which you set up the SSO.

You can also use Microsoft My Apps to test the application in any mode. When you click the Snackmagic tile in the My Apps, if configured in SP mode you would be redirected to the application sign-on page for initiating the login flow and if configured in IDP mode, you should be automatically signed in to the Snackmagic for which you set up the SSO. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.

Next steps

Once you configure Snackmagic you can enforce session control, which protects exfiltration and infiltration of your organization’s sensitive data in real time. Session control extends from Conditional Access. Learn how to enforce session control with Microsoft Cloud App Security.
