Hello All,

I am planning to subscribe to Azure. Below is my requirement.

I have on-premise apps
Want to set up application proxy for these and authenticate via Azure AD + SSO
I do not want to sync up my on-premise directory to Azure AD.

Could you please let me know if this can be achieved with some high level steps.

    Hi Vijesh,

    This should be possible by using Application proxy.

    User identities must be synchronized from an on-premises directory or created directly within your Azure AD tenants.

    Also you can use Pass-through authentication which doesn’t trigger Azure AD authentication in pre-authentication config state.

    Steps here : https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/app-proxy/application-proxy-add-on-premises-application

    Also you need to plan your on-prem application for application proxy integration.

    Yes, you should be able to access app proxy with cloud only accounts. Just make sure you create those identities in Azure AD directly.

    Hello,

    yes, this can be achieved through Azure AD Application Proxy:

    Remote access to on-premises applications through Azure AD Application Proxy

    Thanks for all the responses. Are there any further costs apart from the premium Azure AD subscription. Like, are there costs involved for the connector data throughput?
