Microsoft Entra SSO integration with MINT TMS
In this article, you'll learn how to integrate MINT TMS with Microsoft Entra ID. MINT TMS is a Training, Resource and Qualification Management System used as a reliable tool to plan, optimize and measure training and career progress and the actual records of their employees. When you integrate MINT TMS with Microsoft Entra ID, you can:
- Control in Microsoft Entra ID who has access to MINT TMS.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to MINT TMS with their Microsoft Entra accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location.
You'll configure and test Microsoft Entra single sign-on for MINT TMS in a test environment. MINT TMS supports IDP initiated single sign-on.
To integrate Microsoft Entra ID with MINT TMS, you need:
- A Microsoft Entra 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.
- A Microsoft Entra subscription. If you don't have a subscription, you can get a free account.
- MINT TMS 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 MINT TMS application from the Microsoft Entra gallery. You need a test user account to assign to the application and test the single sign-on configuration.
