How-To: Deploy ModusGate with Azure


Product: ModusGate

Version & Build: 6.5+


modusGate - Azure Deployment Guide:

This section provides information for the configuration of modusGate as a managed APP within your Microsoft Azure AD server.  

(1) Log into your Azure Portal
(2) Click on Azure Active Directory on the far left blade.
(3) Click App registrations in the manage section.
(4) Click New registration
(5) Enter modusGateApp in the required Name field
(6) Select Accounts in this organizational directory only (usually the default setting).
(7) Click Register
(8) Copy the Application (client) ID as it will need to be entered into the Native App ID and Web App ID fields when configuring a route on modusGate
(9) Next we need to add 2 permissions in the API permissions section. Click API permissions in the manage section on the left then add a permission to the existing default delegated User.Read permission.
(10) Click Microsoft Graph, then Application Permissions
(11) Add Group.Read.All and Directory.Read.All Application Permissions. Once done, click Grant Admin Consent and confirm by clicking Yes. Once permissions are done, there should be 3 permissions visible. The default User.Read delegated permission as well as 2 application permissions, Group.Read.All and Directory.Read.All.
(12) Next we need to add a secret key. Click Certificates and Secrets in the manage section, then click New Client Secret.
(13) Enter modusGateSecret in the Description field and select Never in the expiry section.
(14) Upon clicking Add, copy the value of the newly created secret key. This needs to be entered in the Web App Key section on modusGate route configuration section. Note that if you navigate away from this screen without copying the value, you will have to create a new value.
(15) Finally we need to setup Authentication. Click Authentication in the manage section. In the Advanced settings area, check ID tokens and select Yes to treat the application as a public client. (this is in the default client type section)
Once all steps above are completed and you have entered the three fields on modusGate, test the route to see that a mailbox is created via population and that a user can also authenticate using the modus web components.
