Azure Setup

Before continuing, this user should be an Azure AD admin for the organization, and a SAML Config must be created in the Glyue Environment.

Create the Glyue Enterprise Application

From the Azure Active Directory overview page, select Enterprise applications from the left-hand panel.

Click New Application at the top.

Click Create your own application at the top.

Provide a name and select Integrate any other application you don’t find in the gallery (Non-gallery). Click Create at the bottom of the page.

Click 2. Set up single sign on under Getting Started, or select Single sign-on from the left-hand panel.

Select SAML.

Provide Glyue’s metadata to Azure

The Glyue environment SAML metadata will be required for the next step.

Glyue always serves its metadata at https:// (custom domain) /sso/saml2/metadata/. If this user is also a Glyue administrator, the metadata URL will be displayed on the Admin site under SAML Configs.

At the top, select Upload metadata file. Select the appropriate file and upload.

Click Save at the top.

Add an email claim

We need to add a claim to the SAML configuration in Azure, so that the user’s email address comes over to Glyue in a field titled “email” instead of something else.

On the application SAML-based Sign-on page, in section 2 Attributes & Claims click Edit.

Click Add new claim at the top.

Enter email in the Name field. For Source Attribute select user.mail. Click Save in the top-left.

Depending on the organization’s Azure configuration, the user email field name may differ.

Get Azure SAML metadata for Glyue

On the application SAML-based Sign-on page, in section 3 under SAML Certificates download the Federation Metadata XML.

Alternatively, grab the App Federation Metadata Url instead of downloading the file.

This will be needed on the Glyue side, to add Azure as an IdP. If this user is not a Glyue admin, please provide the file/URL to a Sandbox Banking employee.


Don’t forget to assign users or groups to the new application- otherwise they won’t be able to authenticate with Glyue via SSO.
