Connector Azure AD

Azure AD is Microsoft’s cloud directory service.

HelloID’s Azure AD connector allows you to fully manage and provision the users within your Microsoft cloud environment. HelloID integrates with your source system (e.g., HR systems) and Azure AD to drive provisioning processes. HelloID may also serve as your source system. Connect HelloID with Azure AD to cover all of your onboarding and user update needs with increased capability, simplicity, and speed.

Onboarding, Provisioning, & Ongoing Management

Throughout a user’s employment, HelloID automatically executes identity management tasks for Azure AD. Via the connector, HelloID creates and provisions new users, updates them based on source system changes, and deactivates them when their employment ends. Processes are automatic, consistent, and logged.

Service Automation for User Self-Service

Outside of standard provisioning configurations, users may access HelloID’s Service Automation module to request access to additional resources from their dashboard. If approved by the associated “Product Owner,” HelloID processes all changes and provisioning.

Microsoft Graph API

HelloID leverages Microsoft’s Graph API to provision users and group memberships within Azure AD.  Utilizing standard RESTful API commands and HTTP methods, HelloID and Microsoft’s Graph API cover all the necessary processes for user account lifecycle management and CRUD:

  • GET
  • POST
  • PUT

Single Sign-On (SSO) with Azure AD and OpenID Connect

HelloID provides simplified management for configuring SSO with Azure AD serving as the OpenID Connect Identity Provider. When a user opens an application from their HelloID dashboard, the appropriate tokens that verify their Azure AD identity will be sent to the downstream application. With one click, users may access all of their resources connected to Azure AD right from HelloID and without additional authentication.
