Mapping AD groups to Asset Bank user groups

You can configure your Asset Bank to automatically assign users to certain group(s) based on the Azure AD group(s) they are in, see this article for more details.

When authenticating a user, Azure AD will provide the user groups IDs rather than their names therfore you would need to retrieve such IDs from your directory in order to complete the mapping in Asset Bank.

From your Directory open the Groups view

Select the desired Group and open the Properties view

The group ID is called Object ID

Retrieve Azure AD Single Sign-on URL for Asset Bank

Users will be able to sign-on with their Azure AD account from the Asset Bank login page.

However, if you prefer, you can use Microsoft's direct link: from your Asset Bank application Dashboard

You can find the Single Sign-on URL on the bottom right corner of the page
