Azure Active Directory integration with SuccessFactors

The objective of this tutorial is to show you how to integrate SuccessFactors with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

Integrating SuccessFactors with Azure AD provides you with the following benefits:

  • You can control in Azure AD who has access to SuccessFactors
  • You can enable your users to automatically get signed-on to SuccessFactors (Single Sign-On) with their Azure AD accounts
  • You can manage your accounts in one central location – the Azure classic portal

Prerequisites

To configure Azure AD integration with SuccessFactors, you need the following items:

  • A valid Azure subscription
  • A tenant in SuccessFactors
Note:To test the steps in this tutorial, we do not recommend using a production environment.

Scenario description

The objective of this tutorial is to enable you to test Azure AD single sign-on in a test environment.

The scenario outlined in this tutorial consists of two main building blocks:

  1. Adding SuccessFactors from the gallery
  2. Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

To configure the integration of SuccessFactors into Azure AD, you need to add SuccessFactors from the gallery to your list of managed SaaS apps.

To add SuccessFactors from the gallery, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Azure classic portal, on the left navigation panel, click Active Directory.
  2. From the Directory list, select the directory for which you want to enable directory integration.
  3. To open the applications view, in the directory view, click Applications in the top menu.
  4. Click Add at the bottom of the page.

Configuring and testing Azure AD single sign-on

The objective of this section is to show you how to configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with SuccessFactors based on a test user called “Britta Simon”.

For single sign-on to work, Azure AD needs to know what the counterpart user in SuccessFactors to an user in Azure AD is. In other words, a link relationship between an Azure AD user and the related user in SuccessFactors needs to be established.

This link relationship is established by assigning the value of the user name in Azure AD as the value of the Username in SuccessFactors.

To configure and test Azure AD single sign-on with SuccessFactors, you need to complete the following building blocks:

  1. Configuring Azure AD Single Sign-On – to enable your users to use this feature.
  2. Creating an Azure AD test user – to test Azure AD single sign-on with Britta Simon.
  3. Creating a SuccessFactors test user – to have a counterpart of Britta Simon in SuccessFactors that is linked to the Azure AD representation of her.
  4. Assigning the Azure AD test user – to enable Britta Simon to use Azure AD single sign-on.
  5. Testing Single Sign-On – to verify whether the configuration works.
