Azure OIDC Configuration

This page details the steps to configure a new SSO instance using the Azure OIDC application.

Configure SSO in Azure

To create a new application and configure SSO for Azure OIDC, from the Enterprise Applications screen:

  1. Create a new Enterprise Application by clicking New application and then Create your own application.
  2. Fill in the name of the application (e.g.  "Axon") and click Register an application to integrate with Azure AD to use use Azure AD for OIDC authentication.
  3. Enter a user-facing display name for this application in the Name field.
  4. Select the relevant Supported account types.
  5. (Optional.) Open the Select a platform drop-list and choose a Redirect URI platform, and then enter the redirect URI in the field.

    This can be left blank for now and filled in later.

  6. Click Register.
    The application is successfully created.
  7. Return to the Enterprise Applications screen and click Refresh.
    The new Axon application appears in the list.
  8. Click the new Axon application.
    The application overview page appears.
  9. Click Assign users and groups.
    The Users and groups page appears.
  10. Click the Add user/group button to assign any users or groups who should be able to access the application.
    Repeat this step to continue adding users and groups as needed.
  11. In the left-hand panel, click Single sign-on.
  12. In the Configure application properties box, click Go to application.
    The App registrations overview page appears.
  13. Copy the Application (client) ID and save it in a text file. This ID is needed later when configuring this IdP in Axon.
  14. In the left-hand panel, click Certificates & secrets.
  15. Click New client secret.
  16. Enter a unique Description for this client secret, and then select an expiration date from the drop-list.

    The Redirect URI is the URI that is output by Axon when configuring this IdP. The "axon-alias" is the alias created within Axon.

    The "" part of the URL is dependent on the cluster to which your tenant belongs. The URL used above is only an example.

  23. Click Configure.
  24. (Optional.) In the left-hand panel, click Token configuration, and then click Add groups claim.
    This step is required to perform any automatic role mapping in Axon. Configure the groups claim as needed.

  26. Copy the URL in the OpenID Connect metadata document field and paste it into your browser.
