Tutorial: Azure AD SSO integration with LogicMonitor

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate LogicMonitor with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). When you integrate LogicMonitor with Azure AD, you can:

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to LogicMonitor.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to LogicMonitor 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.
  • LogicMonitor single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.

Scenario description

In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD single sign-on in a test environment.

  • LogicMonitor supports SP initiated SSO.

To configure the integration of LogicMonitor into Azure AD, you need to add LogicMonitor from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal using either a work or school account, or a personal Microsoft account.
  2. On the left navigation pane, select the Azure Active Directory service.
  3. Navigate to Enterprise Applications and then select All Applications.
  4. To add new application, select New application.
  5. In the Add from the gallery section, type LogicMonitor in the search box.
  6. Select LogicMonitor 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 LogicMonitor

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with LogicMonitor 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 LogicMonitor.

To configure and test Azure AD SSO with LogicMonitor, perform the following steps:

  1. Configure Azure AD SSO - to enable your users to use this feature.
    1. Create an Azure AD test user - to test Azure AD single sign-on with B.Simon.
    2. Assign the Azure AD test user - to enable B.Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
  2. Configure LogicMonitor SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create LogicMonitor test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in LogicMonitor that is linked to the Azure AD representation of user.
  3. Test SSO - to verify whether the configuration works.

Configure Azure AD SSO

Follow these steps to enable Azure AD SSO in the Azure portal.

  1. In the Azure portal, on the LogicMonitor 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, click the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.

Once you configure LogicMonitor 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.
