Microsoft Entra SSO integration with Tripwire Enterprise

In this article, you'll learn how to integrate Tripwire Enterprise with Microsoft Entra ID. Tripwire Enterprise is the leading compliance monitoring solution, using file integrity monitoring (FIM) and security configuration management (SCM). When you integrate Tripwire Enterprise with Microsoft Entra ID, you can:

  • Control in Microsoft Entra ID who has access to Tripwire Enterprise.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Tripwire Enterprise with their Microsoft Entra accounts.
  • Manage your accounts in one central location.

You'll configure and test Microsoft Entra single sign-on for Tripwire Enterprise in a test environment. Tripwire Enterprise supports IDP initiated single sign-on.


To integrate Microsoft Entra ID with Tripwire Enterprise, 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.
  • Tripwire Enterprise 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 Tripwire Enterprise 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 Tripwire Enterprise from the Microsoft Entra application gallery to configure single sign-on with Tripwire Enterprise. 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.

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft Entra admin center as at least a Cloud Application Administrator.

  2. Browse to Identity > Applications > Enterprise applications > Tripwire Enterprise > Single sign-on.

  3. On the Select a single sign-on method page, select SAML.

  4. On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, select the pencil icon for Basic SAML Configuration to edit the settings.

    Screenshot shows how to edit Basic SAML Configuration.

  5. On the Basic SAML Configuration section, if you have Service Provider metadata file then perform the following steps:

    a. Click Upload metadata file.

    Screenshot shows how to upload metadata file.

    b. Click on folder logo to select the metadata file and click Upload.

    Screenshot shows to choose metadata file.

    c. After the metadata file is successfully uploaded, the Identifier and Reply URL values get auto populated in Basic SAML Configuration section.

  6. Your Tripwire Enterprise application expects the SAML assertions in a specific format, which requires you to add custom attribute mappings to your SAML token attributes configuration. The following screenshot shows an example for this. The default value of Unique User Identifier is user.userprincipalname but Tripwire Enterprise expects this to be mapped with the user's email address. For that you can use user.mailnickname attribute from the list or use the appropriate attribute value based on your organization configuration.

    Screenshot shows the image of token attributes.

  7. On the Set-up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Federation Metadata XML and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.

    Screenshot shows the Certificate download link.
