What You Need to Integrate Azure AD

All you need is a Microsoft Azure account.

Step 1. Get Your Redirect URL

The first step of the integration process is to find and copy your redirect URL on the Admin Panel.

  1. If the navigation menu isn't visible, click the menu icon in the top left corner of the page.

  2. Click Settings > Integrations > Azure AD.

  3. Enable the Azure Active Directory toggle.

  4. Copy the Redirect URI and save it somewhere.

Step 2. Register your Application in Azure

The second step of the integration process is to create an application dedicated to Nexudus user login in your Azure account.

  1. Open your Azure portal at portal.azure.com.

  2. Select the Azure Active Directory module.

  1. Name your application.

We recommend using a clear name such as Nexudus Login + Your location/network name. For example, Nexudus Login Kalkio Spaces.

Running multiple locations?

You only need to create one application for your network as long as all your users log in against the same Azure Directory.

  1. Add the Return URL you've saved during Step 1 and complete the registration form as follows:

  1. Click New client secret.

  2. Name yoru secret and set an expiration period.

You will need to create a new secret once this one expires and update your Nexudus settings accordingly.

Azure will send you a reminder before the secret expires, but we strongly recommend you to also set your own reminder in your calendar.

If the secret expires before your update, your users won't be able to log in to the Members Portal.

  1. Copy Value of your secret (not the ID) and save it somewhere.

You will need this value in the next step.

Treat your secret as you would any other password and make sure you save it somewhere safe.

Step 3. Enabling the Azure AD Integration in Nexudus

The last step of the integration is to enable to Azure integration in your Nexudus account.

  1. If the navigation menu isn't visible, click the menu icon in the top left corner of the page.

  2. Click Settings > Integrations >Azure Active Directory.

  3. Enable the Azure Active Directory integration toggle.

  4. Enabel the Create new users in Nexudus if they don't exist toggle if you want to automatically register users without an existing customer account as contacts in Nexudus.

  5. Enable the Prevent users from using their Nexudus password to log in if you want customers to only be able to use Azure AD to log in to their account.

Enabling this option will automatically redirect users to Azure AD when they click on your Members Portal login page.
  1. Add your application's ID saved during the previous step in the Tenant ID field.

  2. Add your directory ID saved during the previous step in the Client ID field.

  3. Add your application's secret in the Client Secret field.

  4. Add the text you want to display to customers on the Members Portal in the Sign in button label.

The default text is Sign in with Corporate Account.

  1. Click the Save Changes button.

All set! Your Azure AD integration is complete. We generally recommend you test the integration with a demo customer account to ensure everything works as intended.
