How to deploy Application Proxy in Azure Active Directory


Hello, let’s now talk about how you can enable
and test Azure AD Application proxy. To do this there are five main steps, first, you’ll need to download
and register the connector that lightweight on-premises agent
then you’ll need to configure each application
in the azure portal. Third, you’ll want to configure
any Single sign-on that the application may need.
Fourth, you’ll need to assign a user and fifth you can test the application. Let’s take a look at
how you would do each of these steps, so in order to configure
application proxy you’ll need to be in the azure portal. When you go to the azure portal
make sure that you’ve gone to Azure Active Directory. Now the first step was to download and register a connector
the way you do that is by going to the application proxy menu. Now from here you’ll be able to manage all of your connectors
which includes download the connector so, you can click on that
once you accept the terms then you’ll be prompted to download the connector
and run that. Now when you click run you will see this installer here, you can agree to the terms and conditions and click install you will also be asked to authenticate as a global administrator
to make sure that only global admins are allowing this access to
on-premises resources. Once the connector registration is complete and the installation is
complete, you will see the connector appear here in the menus below. Step two was to create the
application in the azure portal so to do that, we’ll now
go over to enterprise applications. Once here you’ll go to the top click
New application and in this case we’re looking to add an on-premises application
so you’ll select the middle icon. From here, you’ll go through and fill out some basic information about your application. What you want
the name to be, the internal URL
which is the internet site that a user would use to get to the application when on the company network, the external URL that
you want to provide for them and then a few other configurations. Once you’ve filled that out, so I’m just going to slide over here, and you can go ahead and click Add. Once you click Add, this application
will be added to the portal and you will next be able to
come and configure additional settings. So you will come into this application
specific menu after you click Add and from here you want
to go to Single sign-on. This is where you can configure
any sign-on depending on the authentication method expected
by your back-end application. There are many different options here, and depending on the one you select,
you will get different fields here to help with the authentication process. Step four, was to assign users
to the application. So you’ll need to go to
the Users and group menu from which you can click an Add user and go ahead and add
additional users to the application. The Single sign-on end-users process is the same as what you will have seen for any other applications
in the Azure portal. Now, finally once you’ve done all of that
you can go ahead and test the application. There are two ways you can do that. One of them is through the Access panel. When you’re here, you will see
Application Proxy Apps listed the same way as other applications and all you need to do
from here is to click on it. What you can also do is to navigate directly to the
external application URL, that you configured
when publishing the App. With these five steps you’ve now deployed your Application Proxy applications and you’ve also done some basic tests. In the next video, we’ll learn more about how to actually deploy this completely
and additional considerations as you move this into production.
