HelloID as SSO Provider - Add a Single Sign-On (SSO) app

Introduction

HelloID from Tools4ever is an Identity as a Service cloud platform that offers a set of resources to, among other things, manage the access and (access) data of users and offer Single Sign-On. Other components of HelloID are 2-Factor Authentication, extended policies (similar to Multi-Factor authentication), service automation and data management.

As described in the Guide for Admins, you configure Single Sign-On with oAuth2 within the workspace. This way, you configure Azure AD as IdP for the Workspace. But you still need to sign in separately to the SSO Provider to acces your apps. This scenario is illustrated below:

Ideally, you would connect the SSO Provider to Azure AD. This way, you can easily add your SSO apps from the SSO Provider directly into the workspace. If you click on the Single Sign-On app in the workspace, you are redirected to the SSO Provider, which checks if you are signed in (in this case with Azure AD). As you already have signed in to Workspace 365 with Azure AD, you're granted access to the SSO Provider automatically and have one identity as a user. Then you benefit from the full Single Sign-On experience.

How to configure the Single Sign-On app

HelloID offers the possibility to configure Azure AD as IdP with SAML. You can read more on their documentation here to set up the integration with Office 365 and/or Azure AD.

After you created the federation/single sign-on connection with Azure AD, you can copy the url of the desired application from the SSO Provider and create a shortcut within workspace.
