ABOUT THE AZURE ACTIVE DIRECTORY AUTOMATION

With the Azure Active Directory (AAD) automation, you can import AAD employees and groups into your organization automatically. Furthermore, you can define the organization role (collaborator or reader) the employees will have once they're imported. Imported employees can log in to your organization in Enalyzer with Azure single sign-on.

This is an organization exclusive feature.

ADD THE AAD AUTOMATION

To add the AAD automation, you have to:

  1. Go to the automations area (automations.png) and select Enalyzer.
  2. Click on the add automation button and select Azure Active Directory.
  3. Log into your Microsoft account. You need to have admin rights to connect to Enalyzer.
  4. Enalyzer will request permission, accept to proceed.
  5. You'll be sent back to Enalyzer where you have to map the fields by linking the variables from Microsoft AAD on the right to the organization employee variables on the left. If there is an AAD variable you don't want to map, select the skip option. Once you're done mapping, click next.
  6. Name your automation.
  7. Select the default organization role for imported employees, i.e. the imported employees will be given the selected role in your organization.
  8. If you want to import your AAD group structure into your organization, enable the group synchronization setting. This means in the event of any subgroups in AAD, these will be added subgroups in your organization.
  9. Finally, select the AAD groups you want to import to your organization by searching for them. When you're done, click next.
  10. You'll receive an overview of the number of employees you're about to import. Click connect now* to finish setting up for your automation.
  11. You're done. The automation runs every 15 minutes, so it will continue to import new employees from your AAD.

*You have to be an organization administrator to enable the automation. Collaborators can create but not enable them.

FAQs

IS THE ORGANIZATION ROLE CONTINUOUSLY SYNCHRONIZED?

No. Changing the default organization role in the automation will not change the role of the employees that already have been imported, only those imported after the change. 

HOW DOES ENALYZER IMPORT THE AAD GROUP STRUCTURE?

AAD uses a graph structure, whereas Enalyzer uses a tree structure. A graph structure works like a network model, where group relationships can be circular. A tree structure works like a hierarchical structure, therefore, Enalyzer transforms the network model into a hierarchy of groups and subgroups.
