Tutorial: Azure AD SSO integration with Wiz SSO

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

  • Control in Azure AD who has access to Wiz SSO.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to Wiz SSO with their Azure AD accounts.
  • Manage your accounts in one central location - the Azure portal.

Prerequisites

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.
  • Wiz SSO single sign-on (SSO) enabled subscription.
  • Along with Cloud Application Administrator, Application Administrator can also add or manage applications in Azure AD. For more information, see Azure built-in roles.

Scenario description

In this tutorial, you configure and test Azure AD SSO in a test environment.

  • Wiz SSO supports SP initiated SSO.
  • Wiz SSO supports Just In Time user provisioning.

To configure the integration of Wiz SSO into Azure AD, you need to add Wiz SSO 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 Wiz SSO in the search box.
  6. Select Wiz SSO 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 Wiz SSO

Configure and test Azure AD SSO with Wiz SSO 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 at Wiz SSO.

To configure and test Azure AD SSO with Wiz SSO, 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 Wiz SSO - to configure the single sign-on settings on application side.
    1. Create Wiz SSO test user - to have a counterpart of B.Simon in Wiz SSO 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 Wiz SSO 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.

    Screenshot shows to edit Basic SAML Configuration.

  4. On the Basic SAML Configuration section, perform the following steps:

    a. In the Identifier textbox, type a value using the following pattern: urn:amazon:cognito:sp:<region_identifier>

    b. In the Reply URL textbox, type a URL using the following pattern: https://<Uuid>.auth.<Region>.amazoncognito.com/saml2/idpresponse

    c. In the Sign on URL text box, type a URL using the following pattern: https://<SUBDOMAIN>.wiz.io/idp-login?clientId=<CLIENT_ID>&idp=<IDP_INSTANCE>

    Note

    These values are not real. Update these values with the actual Identifier, Reply URL and Sign on URL. Contact Wiz SSO support team to get these values. You can also refer to the patterns shown in the Basic SAML Configuration section in the Azure portal.

  5. Your Wiz SSO 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 Wiz SSO expects this to be mapped with the user's email address. For that you can use user.mail attribute from the list or use the appropriate attribute value based on your organization configuration.

    Screenshot shows the image of attributes configuration.

  6. In addition to above, Wiz SSO application expects few more attributes to be passed back in SAML response, which are shown below. These attributes are also pre populated but you can review them as per your requirements.

    Name Source Attribute
    name user.displayname
    groups user.groups

    To create these additional claims:

    a. Go to User Attributes & Claims, select Edit.

    b. Select Add a group claim.

    c. Select All groups.

    d. Under Advanced options, select the Customize the name of the group claim check box.

    e. For Name, enter group.

    f. Select Save.

  7. On the Set up single sign-on with SAML page, in the SAML Signing Certificate section, find Certificate (Base64) and select Download to download the certificate and save it on your computer.

    Screenshot shows the Certificate download link.

  8. On the Set up Wiz SSO section, copy the appropriate URL(s) based on your requirement.

    Screenshot shows to copy configuration appropriate URL.

Create an Azure AD test user

In this section, you'll create a test user in the Azure portal called B.Simon.

  1. From the left pane in the Azure portal, select Azure Active Directory, select Users, and then select All users.
  2. Select New user at the top of the screen.
  3. In the User properties, follow these steps:
    1. In the Name field, enter B.Simon.
    2. In the User name field, enter the username@companydomain.extension. For example, B.Simon@contoso.com.
    3. Select the Show password check box, and then write down the value that's displayed in the Password box.
    4. Click Create.

Assign the Azure AD test user

In this section, you'll enable B.Simon to use Azure single sign-on by granting access to Wiz SSO.

  1. In the Azure portal, select Enterprise Applications, and then select All applications.
  2. In the applications list, select Wiz SSO.
  3. In the app's overview page, find the Manage section and select Users and groups.
  4. Select Add user, then select Users and groups in the Add Assignment dialog.
  5. In the Users and groups dialog, select B.Simon from the Users list, then click the Select button at the bottom of the screen.
  6. If you are expecting a role to be assigned to the users, you can select it from the Select a role dropdown. If no role has been set up for this app, you see "Default Access" role selected.
  7. In the Add Assignment dialog, click the Assign button.

Configure Wiz SSO

To configure single sign-on on Wiz SSO side, you need to send the downloaded Certificate (Base64) and appropriate copied URLs from Azure portal to Wiz SSO support team. They set this setting to have the SAML SSO connection set properly on both sides.

Create Wiz SSO test user

In this section, a user called B.Simon is created in Speexx. Speexx supports just-in-time user provisioning, which is enabled by default. There is no action item for you in this section. If a user doesn't already exist in Speexx, a new one is created after authentication.

Test SSO

In this section, you test your Azure AD single sign-on configuration with following options.

  • Click on Test this application in Azure portal. This will redirect to Wiz SSO Sign-on URL where you can initiate the login flow.

  • Go to Wiz SSO Sign-on URL directly and initiate the login flow from there.

  • You can use Microsoft My Apps. When you click the Wiz SSO tile in the My Apps, this will redirect to Wiz SSO Sign-On URL. For more information about the My Apps, see Introduction to the My Apps.

Next steps

Once you configure Wiz SSO 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.
