Using Azure Active Directory as an identity provider

The following sections detail how to use and manage a Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) account as a NetVault Backup user account.

Setting up an Azure AD login with NetVault Backup

Beginning with release 12.3, NetVault Backup includes the option for users to log in using their Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) credentials. Before you can use this option, complete the following prerequisites:

Registering NetVault Backup on the Azure portal

Before a user can use Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) credentials to log in to NetVault Backup, NetVault Backup must be registered on the Azure portal.

Under Manage, click App registrations.
On the App registrations page, click New registration.


Enter a name for the application; for example, NetVault.

Application type

Select Web.

Redirect URI

For Web App/API applications, provide the base URL for the app; for example, http://localhost:8443 if the web app is running on your local machine. Users would use this URL to sign in to a web client application.

Click Register.

Setting authentication for Azure AD users

Before a user can use their Azure AD credentials to log in to NetVault Backup, you must set up authentication in the Azure AD user interface using one of the following procedures.

Select NetVault as the application that you registered.
Navigate to Authentication.
Under Implicit Grant, select Access tokens and ID tokens.
Click Save.
Select NetVault as the application that you registered.
