Azure Active Directory

I'd like to use Azure Active Directory for single sign-on to mojoPortal and a few other asp.net websites.  The mojoPortal documentation shows it can authenticate with AD by using LDAP, and can use Janrain, OpenID, and Windows Live, so it sounds like it would be possible. 

Has anyone setup mojoPortal with Azure AD?  Should the steps listed at http://www.mojoportal.com/usingactivedirectory.aspx work?

Re: Azure Active Directory

I would expect it to work just fine assuming Azure AD supports LDAP protocol and that the Azure AD server is accessible to the web server over the network.

Re: Azure Active Directory

It doesn't support LDAP.  The docs say "Windows Azure AD isn't a complete replacement for on-premises Windows Server AD. The cloud directory has a much simpler schema, and it's also missing things such as group policy, the ability to store information about machines, and support for LDAP."

Azure AD can be added to an ASP.net application, but not an ASP.net website.  So it sounds like the Windows Azure AD Authentication Library for .NET (ADAL) would have to be added to the mojoPortal source code, not the deployment files?  If that's the case, it's above my skill level, and I hope this can be added to a future version of mojoPortal.

Re: Azure Active Directory

mojoPortal actually uses separate types of authentication for AD and LDAP. So if you specify AD authentication, that's what it will use. I agree with Joe that it sounds like it should work. I'd be surprised if the .NET AD authentication calls are incompatible with Azure's AD implementation.

I guess the only way to know for sure is to test it, if you have that capability.
