Microsoft Entra SSO integration with SOC SST
In this article, you learn how to integrate SOC SST with Microsoft Entra ID. The SOC complies with the mandatory legal documentation, which can be managed within the software by public and private companies that have registered employees (CLT). When you integrate SOC SST with Microsoft Entra ID, you can:
- Control in Microsoft Entra ID who has access to SOC SST.
- Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to SOC SST with their Microsoft Entra accounts.
- Manage your accounts in one central location.
You configure and test Microsoft Entra single sign-on for SOC SST in a test environment. SOC SST supports SP and IDP initiated single sign-on.
To integrate Microsoft Entra ID with SOC SST, 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.
- SOC SST 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 SOC SST application from the Microsoft Entra gallery. You need a test user account to assign to the application and test the single sign-on configuration.
Add SOC SST from the Microsoft Entra gallery
Add SOC SST from the Microsoft Entra application gallery to configure single sign-on with SOC SST. For more information on how to add application from the gallery, see the Quickstart: Add application from the gallery.
Create and assign Microsoft Entra test user
Follow the guidelines in the create and assign a user account article to create a test user account called B.Simon.
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, and assign roles. The wizard also provides a link to the single sign-on configuration pane. Learn more about Microsoft 365 wizards..
Configure Microsoft Entra SSO
Complete the following steps to enable Microsoft Entra single sign-on.
Browse to Identity > Applications > Enterprise applications > SOC SST > Single sign-on.
On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.
On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, select the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.
On the Basic SAML Configuration section, perform the following steps:
a. In the Identifier textbox, type a value using the following pattern:
b. In the Reply URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
If you wish to configure the application in SP initiated mode, then perform the following step:
In the Sign on URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern:
These values are not real. Update these values with the actual Identifier, Reply URL and Sign on URL. Contact SOC SST Client support team to get these values. You can also refer to the patterns shown in the Basic SAML Configuration section.
On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Certificate (PEM) and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.
On the Set up SOC SST section, copy the appropriate URL(s) based on your requirement.
Configure SOC SST SSO
To configure single sign-on on SOC SST side, you need to send the downloaded Certificate (PEM) and appropriate copied URLs from the application configuration to SOC SST support team. They set this setting to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.
Create SOC SST test user
In this section, you create a user called Britta Simon at SOC SST. Work with SOC SST support team to add the users in the SOC SST platform. Users must be created and activated before you use single sign-on.
In this section, you test your Microsoft Entra single sign-on configuration with following options.
Click on Test this application, this will redirect to SOC SST Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.
Go to SOC SST Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.
- Click on Test this application, and you should be automatically signed in to the SOC SST 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 SOC SST 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 SOC SST for which you set up the SSO. For more information, see Microsoft Entra My Apps.
Once you configure SOC SST 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 Cloud App Security.
