Tutorial: Azure AD SSO integration with EY GlobalOne
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate EY GlobalOne with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate EY GlobalOne with Azure AD, you can:
- Control in Azure AD who has access to EY GlobalOne.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to EY GlobalOne with their Azure AD accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.
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.
- EY GlobalOne single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.
In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.
- EY GlobalOne supports SP and IDP initiated SSO.
- EY GlobalOne supports Just In Time user provisioning.
Add EY GlobalOne from the gallery
To configure the integration of EY GlobalOne into Azure AD, you need to add EY GlobalOne from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.
- Sign in to the Azure portal using either a work or school account, or a personal Microsoft account.
- On the left navigation pane, select the Azure Active Directory service.
- Navigate to Enterprise Applications and then select All Applications.
- To add new application, select New application.
- In the Add from the gallery section, type EY GlobalOne in the search box.
- Select EY GlobalOne 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.
Configure and test Azure AD SSO for EY GlobalOne
Configure and test Azure AD SSO with EY GlobalOne 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 EY GlobalOne.
To configure and test Azure AD SSO with EY GlobalOne, perform the following steps:
- Configure Azure AD SSO to enable your users to use this feature.
- Create an Azure AD test user to test Azure AD single sign-on with B. Simon.
- Assign the Azure AD test user to enable B. Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
- Configure EY GlobalOne SSO to configure the SSO settings on application side.
- Create EY GlobalOne test user to have a counterpart of B. Simon in EY GlobalOne that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
- Test SSO to verify whether the configuration works.
Configure Azure AD SSO
Follow these steps to enable Azure AD SSO in the Azure portal.
In the Azure portal, on the EY GlobalOne application integration page, find the Manage section and select Single sign-on.
On the Select a Single sign-on method page, select SAML.
On the Set up Single Sign-On with SAML page, click the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.
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.
EY GlobalOne 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. Click Edit icon to open User Attributes dialog.
In addition to above, EY GlobalOne application expects few more attributes to be passed back in SAML response. In the User Claims section on the User Attributes dialog, perform the following steps to add SAML token attribute as shown in the below table:
Name Source Attribute FirstName user.givenname LastName user.surname user.mail Company
<YOUR COMPANY NAME>
a. Click Add new claim to open the Manage user claims dialog.
b. In the Name textbox, type the attribute name shown for that row.
c. Leave the Namespace blank.
d. Select Source as Attribute.
e. From the Source attribute list, type the attribute value shown for that row.
f. Click Ok
g. Click Save.
On the Set up Single Sign-On with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Certificate (Raw) and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.
On the Set up EY GlobalOne section, copy the appropriate URL(s) based on your requirement.
Create an Azure AD test user
In this section, you'll create a test user in the Azure portal called B. Simon.
- From the left pane in the Azure portal, select Azure Active Directory, select Users, and then select All users.
- Select New user at the top of the screen.
- In the User properties, follow these steps:
- In the Name field, enter

Assign the Azure AD test user
In this section, you'll enable B. Simon to use Azure single sign-on by granting access to EY GlobalOne.
- In the Azure portal, select Enterprise Applications, and then select All applications.
- In the applications list, select EY GlobalOne.
- In the app's overview page, find the Manage section and select Users and groups.
- Select Add user, then select Users and groups in the Add Assignment dialog.

Configure EY GlobalOne SSO
To configure single sign-on on EY GlobalOne side, you need to send the downloaded Certificate (Raw) and appropriate copied URLs from Azure portal to EY GlobalOne support team. They set this setting to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.
Create EY GlobalOne test user
In this section, a user called Britta Simon is created in EY GlobalOne. EY GlobalOne 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 EY GlobalOne, a new one is created after authentication.
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 EY GlobalOne Sign on URL where you can initiate the login flow.
Go to EY GlobalOne Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.
- Click on Test this application in Azure portal and you should be automatically signed in to the EY GlobalOne for which you set up the SSO.
You can also use Microsoft My Apps to test the application in any mode. When you click the EY GlobalOne tile in the My Apps, if configured in SP mode you would be redirected to the application sign on page for initiating the login flow and if configured in IDP mode, you should be automatically signed in to the EY GlobalOne for which you set up the SSO. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.
Once you configure EY GlobalOne 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 Defender for Cloud Apps.
