Tutorial: Azure Active Directory SSO integration with Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration with Azure AD, you can:
- Control in Azure AD who has access to Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration 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.
- Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.
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.
In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.
- Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration supports IDP initiated SSO.
Add Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration from the gallery
To configure the integration of Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration into Azure AD, you need to add Kemp LoadMaster Azure AD integration 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.
