HowTo: CyberHoot – Azure Integration

This HowTo will walk you through how to set Microsoft Azure to allow CyberHoot to sync users, groups, and managers into the CyberHoot Training Platform.

Here are the three main steps to complete.  The overall process will take about 10 – 15 minutes to set up.  Step 2 has quite a few steps, but don’t let that scare you away.  It’s just so long because we wanted to pretty much show you every click to make sure you get the right permissions set up.

Review these PDFs, in order, and you’ll be up and running in no time:

Step 1:  Add Enterprise Application

Step 3:  Create Client Secret

CyberHoot will pull in managers assigned to users automatically.  You just have to make sure the Managers are assigned to Users in Azure:

Assign Manager to Azure User

If you have an on-premise Microsoft Active Directory (AD), you can follow this process to set the Manager:

Set Managers in Active Directory
  1. Open the “User Directory”
  2. Select “User Properties”
  3. Select “Organization”
  4. Click the “Change” button
  5. Type the first or last name of the user’s manager and select the manager from the Directory search.
  6. Save changes
Additional Info:

Azure syncing runs in the background every 30 minutes.  Administrators have the ability to force a sync immediately in the CyberHoot Platform under  Admin -> Customer Settings -> Azure AD.
