Tutorial: Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with Wootric

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

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to Wootric.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Wootric 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.
  • Wootric single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Scenario description

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

  • Wootric supports IDP initiated SSO
  • Wootric supports Just In Time user provisioning
  • Once you configure Wootric 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.

To configure the integration of Wootric into Azure AD, you need to add Wootric 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 Wootric in the search box.
  6. Select Wootric 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 Wootric

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Wootric 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 Wootric.

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

  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 Wootric SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create Wootric test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in Wootric 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 Wootric 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 Basic SAML Configuration section, 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. Wootric 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.


  6. In addition to above, Wootric application expects few more attributes to be passed back in SAML response which are shown below. These attributes are also pre populated but you can review them as per your requirements.

    Name Source Attribute
    id user.objectid
  7. On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Certificate (Base64) and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.

    The Certificate download link

  8. On the Set up Wootric section, copy the appropriate URL(s) based on your requirement.

    d. Select Automatically grant access to new users checkbox.

    e. Click on Save.

Create Wootric test user

In this section, a user called B.Simon is created in Wootric. Wootric 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 Wootric, a new one is created after authentication.

Test SSO

In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration using the Access Panel.

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