Connect to Azure AD Tenant

This functionality creates a connection to your Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD) instance and connects Environment Manager Consoles and Agents to that instance. This connection allows authentication and query of data and users in AAD.

If a registration is not configured, the other Environment Manager AAD functionality is unavailable. To set up registration, Environment Manager must be connected to your Azure AD instance.

Access the AAD command from the Manage ribbon menu and provide the following information to configure your AAD Tenant:

  • Tenant ID - your AAD instance

  • Application (client) ID

  • Certificate Thumbprint

Each of these entries is specific to your AAD instance.

Use Test to check for the connection.

  • You will be prompted for User and Password and then the connection is validated.

  • Select OK to finish.

The connection is created and Environment Manager has access to your Azure Active Directory instance.

Further details on the connection are given for all User Workspace Manager applications in the UWM Online Help.
