How to setup Microsoft Azure as IDP

If trying to set-up use the sample solution described below.
Please understand that even with support contracts iteratec cannot offer support for systems and set-ups other than LUY itself.

Setup Enterprise Application on Microsoft Azure:

To use Microsoft Azure as IDP it is necessary to create a "Enterprise Application" over the Azure portal. 

  • Go to the "Dashboard"

  • Click on "Enterprise Application"

  • To add the needed LUY app to your tenant, select New application

  • Choose the option "Non-gallery application" 

  • Please enter a name for your "Application" (In our example the "Application" is called "LUY-SAML")

  • Click on "ADD" 

  • The "Properties" page of the created "Application" opens 

The next step is to add all necessary information to the “Enterprise Application”. 

  • Open the page "Manage" - "Properties"

  • Copy the value from the field "Application ID"

  • Open the page "Manage" - "Single sign-on"

  • Click on "SAML"

Edit the Basic SAML Configuration:

  • Enter a title for the "Identifier (Entity ID)" 
    (The name for our example is "LUY-SAML")

  • The "Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL)" is the URL of LUY with the addition "/saml/SSO"
    (The "Reply URL" for our example is "")

  • The "Sign on URL" is the URL of LUY without the "/" on the end(The "Sign on URL" for our example is "")

  • The "Relay State" is optional and stays empty 

The "Logout Url" is the URL of Luy with the addition "/saml/SingleLogout"(The "URL" for our example is "")Then the "Basic SAML Configuration" looks like that:

Edit the User Attributes & Claims:

After the page is loaded the default setup looks like this:

For LUY we need "Mail", "Given Name", "Surname", "Login" and "Role". In the default setup of "Attributes & Claims" only the roles are missing. 

  • Click on "Add a group claim" 

  • Choose the "Groups"/"Roles" which should be matched with the LUY roles later

  • For our example we used the following setup

  • Click on "SAVE" and the missing "Claim" is generated 

On our example the "Mail" is our "Login" and our configuration looks like this:

Download the SAML Signing Certificate: 

  • Click on "Download" for the "Certificate (Base64)" certificate

  • Save the certificate on a local created folder 

Before we start to configure LUY for "Azure" copy the following value in a separate textfile

  • The "Application ID" from "Manage" - "Properties" 

  • The "App Federation Metadata Url" from the part "SAML Signing Certificate" 

Create and finish the Keystore:

  • Go into the folder where the "Certificate (Base64)" is saved

  • Create the keystore

"%JAVA_HOME%\bin\keytool" -genkey -alias luy -keyalg RSA -keystore keystore.jks -validity 360
when the "JRE" is used
"%JRE_HOME%\bin\keytool" -genkey -alias luy -keyalg RSA -keystore keystore.jks -validity 360

Linux Terminal:
keytool -genkey -alias luy -keyalg RSA -keystore keystore.jks -validity 360
  • Then the downloaded certificate is imported into the keystore

"%JAVA_HOME%\bin\keytool" -import -alias idpSigningKey -file *Nameoftheazurecertificate*.cer -keystore keystore.jks
when the "JRE" is used
"%JRE_HOME%\bin\keytool" -import -alias idpSigningKey -file *Nameoftheazurecertificate* -keystore keystore.jks

Linux Terminal:
keytool -import -alias idpSigningKey -file Cert1.cer -keystore keystore.jks
