Installing the Azure Multi-Factor Authentication Users Portal

Published: May 20, 2013

Updated: February 21, 2014

The User Portal section allows the administrator to install and configure the Azure Multi-Factor Authentication User Portal. The User Portal is an IIS web site which allows users to enroll in Azure Multi-Factor Authentication and maintain their accounts. A user may change their phone number, change their PIN, or bypass Azure Multi-Factor Authentication during their next sign on. Users will log in to the User Portal using their normal username and password and will either complete a Azure Multi-Factor Authentication call or answer security questions to complete their authentication. If user enrollment is allowed, a user will configure their phone number and PIN the first time they log in to the User Portal. User Portal Administrators may be set up and granted permission to add new users and update existing users.

The following pre-requisites are required for installing the Users Portal.

  • IIS needs to be installed including asp.net and IIS 6 meta base compatibility (for IIS 7)

  • Logged in user must have admin rights for the computer and Domain if applicable.

To install the Users Portal use the following procedure.

  1. Within the Azure Multi-Factor Authentication Server: click User Portal icon in the left menu, click Install User Portal button.

  2. Click Next.

  3. Click Next.

  4. If the computer is joined to a domain and the Active Directory configuration for securing communication between the User Portal and the Azure Multi-Factor Authentication service is incomplete, the Active Directory step will be displayed. Click the Next button to automatically complete this configuration.

    The signed on account must have privileges to create security groups and users in Active Directory.

  5. Click Next.

  6. Click Next.

  7. Click Close.
