Enable Single Sign On using Active Directory Federation Services (integration with Office 365)
We would like to integrate Hubspot with our existing Microsoft based infrastructure by impellent Single Sign On (SSO) using Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).
A Person has been given an account that is managed by our organisation’s Active Directory Service. This Person signs into one of our organisation’s PCs or Online Services (e.g. Microsoft’s Office 365) and an Authentication Token is generated.
Assuming a trust has been set-up between organisation’s Hubspot Service and our Federation Service; the User navigates to our Hubspot Portal and is granted access (authorised) based upon permissions set by Hubspot service.
Definitions & Descriptions:
Active Directory is used to manage account properties including Username and Passwords.
Authentication (SSO) is managed by ADFS which generates the Authentication Token.
Authorisation is managed by Hubspot – i.e. the access level permissions granted to an account.
