Anywhere365 Authentication for Dialogue Studio

Note: Before setting up Anywhere365 Authentication for Dialogue Studio, make sure you have created a new Azure App as described here Learn More

Configuration and Mapping of Azure groups

When using Anywhere365 Authentication, it is required to assign Azure users to Azure groups. Without this, no access is provided. Two types of Dialogue Studio users are allowed:

  • Reader: These users have only rights to look into Dialogue Studio, but can not change anything.
  • Writer: This category users have full right to make changes in Dialogue Studio.

Creating Azure groups

  1. In Azure click on Azure Active Directory
  2. In the left menu click on groups.

  3. Click on new group

  4. Select group type ‘security’. Fill in a suitable name for the group, such as DialogueStudioWriter and DialogueStudioReader. Press on the Create button. The Created Group will also have an Object Id. This Object Id is needed later.
  5. Add users to one of the appropriate groups. Please note that Groups can be nested, so if your organizational structure requires multiple user groups to be part of ‘Writer’ group for example, that can achieved by adding those groups to the main ‘Writer’ group.

Mapping Azure Groups

  1. Go to Home -> Azure Active Directory -> Enterprise applications and select the application for Dialogue Studio. Then select Assign Users and Groups.
  2. Click on 'Add User/Group' and then on 'Users and Groups'. Add the created groups for Dialogue Studio to the application.
  3. Go to Home -> Azure Active Directory -> App registrations and select the Dialogue Studio application.
  4. Go to tab Token configuration. -> Click on Add Groups claim -> Groups Assigned to the application -> Save. This will ensure that groups are added as a claim to the Azure token.
