Tutorial: Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with BlueJeans for Azure AD

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

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

Prerequisites

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.
  • BlueJeans for Azure AD single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Note

This integration is also available to use from Azure AD US Government Cloud environment. You can find this application in the Azure AD US Government Cloud Application Gallery and configure it in the same way as you do from public cloud.

Scenario description

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

Note

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

To configure the integration of BlueJeans for Azure AD into Azure AD, you need to add BlueJeans for Azure AD 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.

  4. To add new application, select New application.
  5. In the Add from the gallery section, type BlueJeans for Azure AD in the search box.
  6. Select BlueJeans for Azure AD from results panel and then add the app. Wait a few seconds while the app is added to your tenant.

Alternatively, you can also use the Enterprise App Configuration Wizard. In this wizard, you can add an application to your tenant, add users/groups to the app, assign roles, as well as walk through the SSO configuration as well. Learn more about Microsoft 365 wizards.

    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 BlueJeans for Azure AD SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create BlueJeans for Azure AD test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in BlueJeans for Azure AD that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
  3. Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.
