Tutorial: Configure Brivo Onair Identity Connector for automatic user provisioning

The objective of this tutorial is to demonstrate the steps to be performed in Brivo Onair Identity Connector and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to configure Azure AD to automatically provision and de-provision users and/or groups to Brivo Onair Identity Connector.

Note

This tutorial describes a connector built on top of the Azure AD User Provisioning Service. For important details on what this service does, how it works, and frequently asked questions, see Automate user provisioning and deprovisioning to SaaS applications with Azure Active Directory.

Prerequisites

The scenario outlined in this tutorial assumes that you already have the following prerequisites:

Assigning users to Brivo Onair Identity Connector

Azure Active Directory uses a concept called assignments to determine which users should receive access to selected apps. In the context of automatic user provisioning, only the users and/or groups that have been assigned to an application in Azure AD are synchronized.

Before configuring and enabling automatic user provisioning, you should decide which users and/or groups in Azure AD need access to Brivo Onair Identity Connector. Once decided, you can assign these users and/or groups to Brivo Onair Identity Connector by following the instructions here:

Important tips for assigning users to Brivo Onair Identity Connector

  • It is recommended that a single Azure AD user is assigned to Brivo Onair Identity Connector to test the automatic user provisioning configuration. Additional users and/or groups may be assigned later.

  • When assigning a user to Brivo Onair Identity Connector, you must select any valid application-specific role (if available) in the assignment dialog. Users with the Default Access role are excluded from provisioning.

Setup Brivo Onair Identity Connector for provisioning

  1. Sign in to your Brivo Onair Identity Connector Admin Console. Navigate to Account > Account Settings.

Before configuring Brivo Onair Identity Connector for automatic user provisioning with Azure AD, you need to add Brivo Onair Identity Connector from the Azure AD application gallery to your list of managed SaaS applications.

To add Brivo Onair Identity Connector from the Azure AD application gallery, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Azure portal, in the left navigation panel, select Azure Active Directory.

    The Azure Active Directory button

  2. Go to Enterprise applications, and then select All applications.

    The Enterprise applications blade

  3. To add a new application, select the New application button at the top of the pane.

    The New application button

  4. In the search box, enter Brivo Onair Identity Connector, select Brivo Onair Identity Connector in the results panel, and then click the Add button to add the application.

  5. Under the Admin Credentials section, input https://scim.brivo.com/ActiveDirectory/v2/ in Tenant URL. Input the SCIM Authentication Token value retrieved earlier in Secret Token. Click Test Connection to ensure Azure AD can connect to Brivo Onair Identity Connector. If the connection fails, ensure your Brivo Onair Identity Connector account has Admin permissions and try again.

  12. To configure scoping filters, refer to the following instructions provided in the Scoping filter tutorial.

  13. To enable the Azure AD provisioning service for Brivo Onair Identity Connector, change the Provisioning Status to On in the Settings section.

  15. When you are ready to provision, click Save.

    Saving Provisioning Configuration

This operation starts the initial synchronization of all users and/or groups defined in Scope in the Settings section. The initial sync takes longer to perform than subsequent syncs, which occur approximately every 40 minutes as long as the Azure AD provisioning service is running. You can use the Synchronization Details section to monitor progress and follow links to provisioning activity report, which describes all actions performed by the Azure AD provisioning service on Brivo Onair Identity Connector.
