Entra ID/Azure AD Configuration

How to configure Keeper SSO Connect On-Prem with Microsoft Entra ID / Azure AD for seamless and secure SAML 2.0 authentication.

For a 100% cloud-based integration with Azure, see Keeper SSO Connect Cloud


Go to your Azure Admin account at https://portal.azure.com and click on Azure Active Directory > Enterprise Applications.

If you already have a Keeper application set up for SCIM Provisioning, you can edit the existing application and should not create a new one.

If you have not set up Keeper in Azure yet, click on "New Application" then search for Keeper and select "Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault". On the right side click "Add" to add the application.

After adding the application, click on the "Single Sign On" section and select the "SAML" option:

Edit Basic SAML Configuration

Click the pencil icon to edit the "Basic SAML Configuration".

Type in the Identifier, Reply URL and Sign on URL that apply to the URLs in your Keeper SSO Connect installation. Ignore the "Patterns" text.

Example Settings: Identifier = https://xyz.domain.com:8443/sso-connect Reply URL = https://xyz.domain.com:8443/sso-connect/saml/sso Sign on URL = https://xyz.domain.com:8443/sso-connect/saml/login

(replace the domain and port according to your SSO Connect configuration)

Save the settings.

Edit User Attributes & Claims

Under the User Attributes section, Azure will automatically create claims for User ID, First, Last and Email.

We recommend deleting the 4 claims in the "Additional Claims" section since they are not needed.

In your environment, if your user.userprincipalname (UPN) is not the same as the users actual email address, you can edit the Email claim and change it to user.mail as the value for the Email attribute.

Edit SAML Signing Certificate SAML

Under the SAML Signing Certificate section click Edit.

Select Create new certificate. Enter the expiration date and save.

After creating the certificate select Make new certificate active.

Select signing option "Sign SAML response and assertion" with SHA-256 signing method.

Obtain Metadata XML

To complete the integration between Microsoft Azure and Keeper SSO Connect, you must retrieve the Metadata XML file and import this file into the Keeper SSO Connect screen. Select on the Federation Metadata XML link:

This will download a file Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault.xml to your computer. This file will need to be transferred to the server running Keeper SSO Connect for the next step.

Import the Azure Metadata

Import the file saved in the previous step into Keeper SSO Connect’s configuration screen by dragging and dropping the file into the SAML Metadata section.

Don’t forget to select Azure as the Identity Provider Type.

User Provisioning

If only specific users or groups will be assigned to Keeper Password Manager the following setting will need to be changed. In your Azure console, navigate to Azure Active Directory > Enterprise Applications > Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault and select Properties.

Change the User assignment required to Yes and then save. This will ensure only the user and groups assigned to the application will be able to use it.

On the Users and groups section select the users and/or groups that are to be provisioned to the Keeper application.

Your Keeper SSO Connect setup is now complete!
