Azure Configuration

In your Azure Active Directory, select “App registrations” and then “+ New registration”.

One the screen that follows, enter the name as “Crowdicity” and choose the supported account type.

For the Redirect URL, please enter

https://<strong><your-community-url></strong>/user/azureauth

On the Overview screen that appears, take note of the Application (client) ID - this will need to be entered into Crowdicity later.

Click the “Authentication” option in the menu list on the left, and add another redirect URI to the list:

https://mobile.crowdicity.com/popup/azureLogin.html

The authentication screen should now look something like this.

Finally, in “Certificates & Secrets”, click “+ New client secret”, select a name for it and save it. Take a note of the value, this will also need to be added to Crowdicity.

Finally, you’ll also need to assign users to the Crowdicity app via the “Enterprise Applications” menu.

Crowdicity Configuration

In Crowdicity, you’ll need to be an admin user to complete the configuration - ask your community administrator if you need access.

If you’re an admin, you’ll see the admin bar at the top of the community. Select “Community Settings” and then the “Authentication” tab. Scroll down to “Microsoft Azure accounts”.

Here, you’ll need to select “Enable” and enter the Application ID into the “client ID” box and the secret value into the “client secret” box.

Choose an “order” that does not conflict with the other authentication methods.

At the bottom of the page, click “Save changes”.

In an Incognito/Private browser window, go to the community and test the new login method, which will now be selectable on the sign-in page.

If you already have a Crowdicity account, you will need to take an extra authentication step to connect that account to the new Azure login. Other users who are using Crowdicity for the first time will not encounter that step and will be immediately logged in.
