Configure an instance of SAML 2.0 integration for Microsoft Azure in Cortex XSOAR.

After you have configured Azure to authenticate on Cortex XSOAR, you can then configure an integration instance for SAML 2.0 in Cortex XSOAR.

  1. Create a SAML 2.0 integration instance.

    1. Go to SettingsIntegrationsInstances.

    2. Search for SAML 2.0 and click Add instance to configure a new integration.

    3. Add the metadata/URL parameters from Azure to Cortex XSOAR.

      Azure Portal field

      Service Provider Entity ID

      Identifier (Entity ID) (Basic SAML Configuration Section)

      IdP metadata URL

      App Federation Metadata URL (SAML Signing Certificate Section)

      Idp SSO URL

      The following Azure metadata/URL information has been added to the SAML 2.0 attributes in Cortex XSOAR:

    4. In the following fields, copy the Azure attributes exactly how they appear in Azure (in Azure, go to User Attributes & ClaimsEdit). For example, in the Attribute to get email field, type

      In this example, we have the following Claim Names:

      If your Identity Provider requires signed authentication requests, select Sign request and input the public/private certificate pair generated for Cortex XSOAR.

    6. Select the ADFS and Compress encode URL (ADFS) checkboxes.

    7. In the Service Identifier (ADFS) field, copy the characters after the appid value, which can be found at the end of the App Federation Metadata URL (section 3 in SAML Certificate).

    8. In the IdP Single Logout URL, from Azure, copy the Logout URL (section 4).

    9. In the Single Logout Service Endpoint add the details in the following format:

    10. To verify that the settings are successful, in the instance settings, click Get service provider metadata.

      For a full list and descriptions of the fields, see SAML 2.0 Azure Parameters.

      If you click Test a bug is issued similar to this:


      You need to login with a user to test the instance. It is recommended to test this also on the Azure app, as there are detailed error reports and troubleshooting.

  2. Map the Azure groups to Cortex XSOAR roles.

    1. In Microsoft Azure, select Azure Active DirectoryEnterprise applicationsname of your applicationAssign users and groupsName of your group.
