Azure Active Directory SSO integration with Cybozu(cybozu.com)

In this article, you'll learn how to integrate Cybozu(cybozu.com) with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Cybozu.com(kintone, Cybozu Office, Garoon, Mailwise) is the cloud service provided by Cybozu, Inc. The integration with Azure Active Directory enables SSO. When you integrate Cybozu(cybozu.com) with Azure AD, you can:

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to Cybozu(cybozu.com).
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Cybozu(cybozu.com) with their Azure AD accounts.
  • Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.

You'll configure and test Azure AD single sign-on for Cybozu(cybozu.com) in a test environment. Cybozu(cybozu.com) supports only SP initiated single sign-on.

Prerequisites

To integrate Azure Active Directory with Cybozu(cybozu.com), you need:

  • An Azure AD user account. If you don't already have one, you can Create an account for free.
  • One of the following roles: Global Administrator, Cloud Application Administrator, Application Administrator, or owner of the service principal.
  • An Azure AD subscription. If you don't have a subscription, you can get a free account.
  • Cybozu(cybozu.com) single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Add application and assign a test user

Before you begin the process of configuring single sign-on, you need to add the Cybozu(cybozu.com) application from the Azure AD gallery. You need a test user account to assign to the application and test the single sign-on configuration.

Add Cybozu(cybozu.com) from the Azure AD application gallery to configure single sign-on with Cybozu(cybozu.com). For more information on how to add application from the gallery, see the Quickstart: Add application from the gallery.

Create and assign Azure AD test user

Follow the guidelines in the create and assign a user account article to create a test user account in the Azure portal called B.Simon.

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, and assign roles. The wizard also provides a link to the single sign-on configuration pane in the Azure portal. Learn more about Microsoft 365 wizards..

Configure Azure AD SSO

Complete the following steps to enable Azure AD single sign-on in the Azure portal.

  1. In the Azure portal, on the Cybozu(cybozu.com) 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, select the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.

Configure Cybozu(cybozu.com) SSO

To configure single sign-on on Cybozu(cybozu.com) side, you need to send the downloaded Certificate (Base64) and appropriate copied URLs from Azure portal to Cybozu(cybozu.com) support team. They set this setting to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.

Create Cybozu(cybozu.com) test user

In this section, you create a user called Britta Simon in Cybozu(cybozu.com). Work with Cybozu(cybozu.com) support team to add the users in the Cybozu(cybozu.com) platform. Users must be created and activated before you use single sign-on.

Test SSO

In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration with following options.

  • Click on Test this application in Azure portal. This will redirect to Cybozu(cybozu.com) Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.

  • Go to Cybozu(cybozu.com) Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.

  • You can use Microsoft My Apps. When you click the Cybozu(cybozu.com) tile in the My Apps, this will redirect to Cybozu(cybozu.com) Sign-on URL. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.
