How to bypass the Microsoft AAD login Screen for a Federated SSO User when access an AAD integrated application

As more organisations are integrating their SAML applications to AAD instead of ADFS to take advantage of the Azure AD Conditional Access Policy. One user experience issue of the change is that federated users (e.g. using ADFS for single-sign on) are first redirected to default MS AAD Login page. Only when they have entered their UPN, they are redirected to the ADFS page to sign in.

Many customers and end-users have asked if they can be redirected straight to the ADFS page, bypassing the MS login page, especially when migrating an existing ADFS federated application to AAD.… [Keep reading] “How to bypass the Microsoft AAD login Screen for a Federated SSO User when access an AAD integrated application”

Microsoft Graph using MSAL with PowerShell

Microsoft Authentication Libraries (MSAL) became Generally Available in May 2019 after a very long preview cycle whilst the libraries evolved to reach parity with its predecessor the Azure Active Directory Authentication Libraries (ADAL). I’ve previously used and written posts on leveraging ADAL libraries with PowerShell for Azure AD/Microsoft Graph integration using PowerShell. With some upcoming projects it’s time for me to start integrating with Microsoft Graph using MSAL with PowerShell. This post details how I transitioned from ADAL to MSAL and reduced my scripts by 60-300 lines depending on the integration.… [Keep reading] “Microsoft Graph using MSAL with PowerShell”

Generate SailPoint IdentityNow v2 & v3 API Credentials

This post details how to generate SailPoint IdentityNow v2 and v3 API credentials. This method is valid as of Oct 2019 whereby v3 Credentials are now able to be generated via the SailPoint IdentityNow Portal and v2 Credentials can be generated via the IdentityNow API. v2 credentials are useful for some legacy API’s and API calls that are long running tasks (which thereby use Digest Auth) over using the v3 JWT method. These credentials can then be leveraged by the  SailPoint IdentityNow PowerShell Module for IdentityNow orchestration tasks.… [Keep reading] “Generate SailPoint IdentityNow v2 & v3 API Credentials”

Multi-Threading Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent Imports

As I’m sure you are familiar (with my many posts on the topic), the Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent is extremely flexible. When used to integrate Microsoft Identity Manager with modern REST API’s it is easy to retrieve pages of results from a REST API and process the objects through the Management Agent. However sometimes you need to integrate Microsoft Identity Manager with an API (e.g. a SOAP WebService) that doesn’t provide functionality to page results.… [Keep reading] “Multi-Threading Granfeldt PowerShell Management Agent Imports”

ChatOps for Microsoft Identity Manager

A Bot or ChatOps for Microsoft Identity Manager is something I’ve had in the back of my mind for just over two years. More recently last year I did build the Voice Assistant for Microsoft Identity Manager as a submission for an IoT Hackathon. But what is ChatOps?

ChatOps is a collaboration model that connects people, tools, process, and automation into a transparent workflow. This flow connects the work needed, the work happening, and the work done in a persistent location staffed by the people, bots, and related tools.[Keep reading] “ChatOps for Microsoft Identity Manager”

An Azure MFA Management Agent for User MFA Reporting using Microsoft Identity Manager

Microsoft as part of the uplift in Authentication Methods capability have extended the Graph API to contain User Azure MFA information. My customers have been requesting MFA User Reporting data for some time. How many users are registered for Azure MFA? What and how many methods are they registered with? The new Graph API functions provide this information and we no longer have to use the legacy MSOLUser PowerShell cmdlet to obtain the strongAuthenticationMethods information. The new API’s provide;

Azure MFA User Reporting Management Agent

With this new functionality exposed, I’ve built an Azure MFA Management Agent for Microsoft Identity Manager to consume information from the credentialRegistrationDetails API, which can then be used in Identity Workflows to trigger notifications to users that don’t have enough registered methods (e.g.… [Keep reading] “An Azure MFA Management Agent for User MFA Reporting using Microsoft Identity Manager”

Automated Microsoft Identity Manager Configuration Backups & Documentation to Azure

Two and half years ago I wrote this post on creating an Azure Function to trigger the process of Automating Microsoft Identity Manager Configuration backups. The Azure Function piece was a little obtuse. I was using it, as it was the “new thing” and it was my new hammer. And everything was a nail. The reality is that the rest of the process is completely valid (nightly backups of your development Identity Manager configuration).… [Keep reading] “Automated Microsoft Identity Manager Configuration Backups & Documentation to Azure”

Using AzCopy with Azure Virtual Machines Managed Identity

The Managed Identities for Azure Resources feature is a free service with Azure Active Directory. Formerly known as Managed Service Identity, Managed Identities for Azure Resources first appeared in services such as Azure Functions a couple of years ago. Much more recent though Azure Copy (AzCopy) now supports Azure Virtual Machines Managed Identity. This negates the need to get and manage SAS keys or certificates, and even the need for installing and leveraging the AzureRM or AzRM PowerShell modules.… [Keep reading] “Using AzCopy with Azure Virtual Machines Managed Identity”

Troubleshooting the SailPoint IdentityNow RACF Connector Gateway Configuration

Installing and configuring a SailPoint IdentityNow RACF Connector isn’t something you do everyday. It’s probably something you will only over do once or twice it at all. This post is my learnings from troubleshooting the SailPoint IdentityNow RACF Connector Gateway to allow the IdentityNow RACF Source to connect to the RACF Agent on z/OS. The best background reference for such a configuration is this document on Compass. The IdentityNow RACF Connector Gateway can be downloaded from here.… [Keep reading] “Troubleshooting the SailPoint IdentityNow RACF Connector Gateway Configuration”
