This code sample is one of three referenced in the Azure AD sessions of the Microsoft Cloud Roadshow. Recordings of these sessions will be available shortly here. We recommend you watch one of these recordings to understand the purpose and goals of this code sample.
To-Do List Reimagined (tdlr;) is a new cloud service that allows users to store and manage a list of tasks. It integrates with Azure AD in order to provide enterprise features to its customers that have an existing Azure AD tenant. These features include:
The full service consists of three different sample projects:
This TDLR; admin web portal is another instance of the TDLR; web app, but adds one additional feature. The admin portal uses the application's identity to sync the list of users that the company's administrators have assigned to the application. This allows the company admins to handle all user access, and for the applicaition to automatically react to changes using the Azure AD Graph API. The most relevant code for this sync mechanism is located in the AdminApiController.
You'll first need to register an app in the Azure Management Portal so that your version of tdlr; can sign users in and get information from Azure AD.
You'll need an Azure Activce Directory tenant in which to register your application. For more information on how to get an Azure AD tenant, please see How to get an Azure AD tenant. You may also wish to create an additional tenant, since the tdlr; app is 'multi-tenant' - it allows users from any organization to sign up & sign in. You'll want to create a few users in your tenant(s) for testing purposes - a guest user with a personal MSA account will not work for this sample.
https://localhost:44322/. NOTE: It is important, due to the way Azure AD matches URLs, to ensure there is a trailing slash on the end of this URL. If you don't include the trailing slash, you will receive an error when the application attempts to redeem an authorization code. Click on Create to create the application.
Now you can download this repo as a zip or clone it to your local machine:
git clone https://github.com/azureadsamples/azureroadshow-web-autouserprovisioning
In your local repo, open the
TDLR.sln file. We recommned you use Visual Studio 2015, which will restore all necessary packages for you when you run the app for the first time.
To run the app, you'll need to enter the information from your app registration. In Visual Studio, open the
web.config file in the root of the project and locate the
<appSettings> section. Replace the following values with your own:
<add key="ida:ClientId" value="[Enter your clientID from the Azure Management Portal, e.g. b1132c6b-fbf8-43b3-a9d8-329be1c87fcb]" /> <add key="ida:AppKey" value="[Enter your key from the Azure Management Portal, e.g. TpNUr1CrYMP5bkvXKwmRKQvINuTp2nyp4kIzoabgZC0=]" /> <add key="ida:Tenant" value="[Enter the name of the tenant where you registered your app, e.g. mytenant.onmicrosoft.com]" /> <add key="ida:TaskApiResourceId" value="[Enter your App ID URI from the Azure Management Portal, e.g. https://mytenant.onmicrosoft.com/tdlr]" />
You can now run the tdlr; app and explore its functionality. Try signing up and signing in with your Azure AD users, creating tasks, and sharing them with other users. To understand the code behind the app, we recommend you watch on of the recorded Microsoft Cloud Roadshow sessions which will be available soon here. If you're already familiar with Azure AD, you may find the code comments instructive as well.
