In some scenarios, an administrator may be utilizing Azure Active Directory Applications which deploy specific applications to the user base via the Access Panel.  ( https://myapps.microsoft.com)

This article will walk through the steps on how to configure a custom application so users can access the HubStor End User Portal.  It can also be used for the HubStor Admin Portal for administrators.  

1. Log into the Azure Admin portal

2.  Choose the Azure Active Directory Blade



3.  Choose App registrations (preview) and at the top, click the New Registration button



4.  Now populate the Name field:  this will be the name of the app displayed to users in the Access Panel so name it accordingly:  Ie. HubStor End User Portal

5.  Click the Radio button:   Accounts in any organizational directory and personal Microsoft accounts

6. Enter the URL for the end user portal in the Redirect URI field and click the blue Register button



7.    Click on Branding

 

8.   In the Home Page URL field, enter the same URL as Step 6 (good time to add a logo as well)



9. Click Save

10.  Click API Permissions > Grant admin consent for %directory name%




11.  Click YES at the top of the page



12.   Now test by going to https://myapps.microsoft.com and confirm the new app appears.  It may take up to 10 mins to update this page. 



Note:  Depending on the AD configuration, there may be the need to manually add users/groups to the new application in order for the app to display.
