How it works

To work with Elium, you need to have the following system requirements met:

  • An Azure AD tenant
  • An Elium tenant
  • A user account in Elium, with admin permissions

The tool has several aspects to it. Each aspect is discussed below:

Assigning users implies allowing them access to selected apps. While doing that, admin needs to select a valid and application-specific role in the assignment dialogue box for each user. The users with “default access” role are automatically eliminated form provisioning.

Configure Provisioning

In order to configure automatic user provisioning for Elium in Azure AD, you need to follow the below listed steps:

  1. Sign in to your Azure portal, select Enterprise applications, and then click on All applications.

  3. Click on the Provisioning tab.
  4. Set the Provisioning Mode to Automatic.

Then type the Elium Secret token value in the Secret Token field. At the end, click on Test Connection to verify that Azure AD can connect to Elium. If it doesn’t connect ensure that your Elium account has admin role and try again.
  6. Add the email ids of the person or group who will be receiving the provisioning error notifications in the Notification Email field. Then, select the Send an email notification when a failure occurs check box.
  7. Click Save.
  8. In Mappings section, select Synchronize Azure Active Directory Users to Elium.
