Tutorial: Integrate Wandera with Azure Active Directory
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate Wandera with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate Wandera with Azure AD, you can:
- Control in Azure AD who has access to Wandera.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Wandera with their Azure AD accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.
To learn more about SaaS app integration with Azure AD, see What is application access and single sign-on with Azure Active Directory.
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.
- Wandera single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.
In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.
- Wandera supports IDP initiated SSO
Adding Wandera from the gallery
To configure the integration of Wandera into Azure AD, you need to add Wandera from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.
- Sign in to the Azure portal using either a work or school account, or a personal Microsoft account.
- On the left navigation pane, select the Azure Active Directory service.
- Navigate to Enterprise Applications and then select All Applications.
- To add new application, select New application.
- In the Add from the gallery section, type Wandera in the search box.
- Select Wandera 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 single sign-on
Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Wandera 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 Wandera.
To configure and test Azure AD SSO with Wandera, complete the following building blocks:
- Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
- Configure Wandera SSO - to configure the Single Sign-On settings on application side.
- Create an Azure AD test user - to test Azure AD single sign-on with B.Simon.
- Assign the Azure AD test user - to enable B.Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
- Create Wandera test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in Wandera that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
- Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.
Configure Azure AD SSO
Follow these steps to enable Azure AD SSO in the Azure portal.

In this section, you create a user called B.Simon in Wandera. Work with Wandera support team to add the users in the Wandera platform. Users must be created and activated before you use single sign-on.
In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration using the Access Panel.
When you click the Wandera tile in the Access Panel, you should be automatically signed in to the Wandera for which you set up SSO. For more information about the Access Panel, see Introduction to the Access Panel.
