F5 BIG-IP APM – IdP Initiated for Office 365
F5 BIG-IP APM is really useful for federation and Microsoft integration thanks to the AGC (Advanced Guided Configuration) for version 15 and SGC (Simplified Guided Configuration) for version 16. It is very easy to configure Application access with Azure AD or federation with Office 365. F5 APM federates user identity and enables single sign-on (SSO) to applications on-premises and in the cloud, including SaaS, because APM supports SAML, OAuth, Kerberos, header-based authentication and other SSO techniques.
I’ve been recording a new video today where you can watch how to configure F5 APM as Identity Provider for Office 365. The configuration is really easy. On one hand, there are some configuration needed on the Windows side such as Azure AD Connect installation on Active Directory for user sincronization, as well as, AzureAD and MSOnline for Windows Federation. On the other hand, we can use the Guided Configuration on F5 APM for configuring easily F5 as Identity Provider for Office 365.
Have a nice day! Would you like to configure federation on Office 365?
