Tutorial: Azure AD SSO integration with ITRP
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate ITRP with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate ITRP with Azure AD, you can:
- Control in Azure AD who has access to ITRP.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to ITRP with their Azure AD accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.
To configure Azure AD integration with ITRP, you need to have:
- An Azure AD subscription. If you don't have an Azure AD environment, you can get a free account.
- An ITRP subscription that has single sign-on enabled.
In this tutorial, you'll configure and test Azure AD single sign-on in a test environment.
- ITRP supports SP-initiated SSO.
Add ITRP from the gallery
To configure the integration of ITRP into Azure AD, you need to add ITRP 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 ITRP in the search box.
- Select ITRP 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 ITRP
Configure and test Azure AD SSO with ITRP 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 ITRP.
To configure and test Azure AD SSO with ITRP, perform the following steps:
- Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
- Configure ITRP SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
- Create an ITRP test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in ITRP 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 ITRP 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.

In the SAML SSO URL box, paste the Login URL value that you copied from the Azure portal.
In the Certificate fingerprint box, paste the Thumbprint value of the certificate, which you copied from the Azure portal.
Create an ITRP test user
To enable Azure AD users to sign in to ITRP, you need to add them to ITRP. You need to add them manually.
To create a user account, take these steps:
Sign in to your ITRP tenant.
At the top of the window, select the Records icon:
In the menu, select People:
Select the plus sign (+) to add a new person:
In the Add New Person dialog box, take the following steps.
Enter the name and email address of a valid Azure AD account that you want to add.
You can use any user account creation tool or API provided by ITRP to provision Azure AD user accounts.
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 ITRP Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.
Go to ITRP Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.
You can use Microsoft My Apps. When you click the ITRP tile in the My Apps, this will redirect to ITRP Sign-on URL. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.
Once you configure ITRP 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.
