1. Setting up the integration with Azure AD, with Modern Authentication for SSO

To setup the external integration with Office 365 there are a few important configurations needed to be able to use SSO for your users, and book the Rooms with your Office 365 calendar.

Our advice is to start with step 1. Which is the configuration of the GoBright Enterprise Application in Azure AD, to be used with the integration of your Office 365 service account with Modern Authentication. Please check this article for more explanation. 

After the configuration of the Enterprise Application, and linking your integration in the GoBright portal, users can sign in with the SSO protocols configured in your Azure AD environment.

Single Sign-On is also possible with other integrations such as SAML, AD FS or Google. Only read the SAML article if you do not want to use Modern Authentication through Microsoft.

2. Configuration for GoBright Meet with Microsoft resource mailbox

The following article is required if you are using GoBright Meet, and you want to book Rooms via your resource calendars: Configure GoBright Meet with Office 365 integration

Please keep in mind that the ‘Office 365 integration for GoBright Meet (Rooms)’ needs to be done together with the configuration of the Enterprise Application for SSO. Skip this step if you don’t want to use GoBright Meet with an external system.

After you have completed setting up the integration, you will need to add your users to the GoBright portal. This step is needed before your users can sign into the portal with SSO. Please continue to the heading about ‘Adding Users to GoBright portal’.
