The scenario outlined in this tutorial assumes that you already have the following items:

  • A tenant in Jive

The scenario outlined in this tutorial consists of the following building blocks:

  1. Enabling the application integration for Jive

  2. Configuring user provisioning

The objective of this section is to outline how to enable the application integration for Jive.

  1. In the Azure Management Portal, on the left navigation pane, click Active Directory.

  2. From the Directory list, select the directory for which you want to enable directory integration.

  3. To open the applications view, in the directory view, click Applications in the top menu.

    What do you want to do?
  5. In the search box, type Jive.

The objective of this section is to outline how to enable user provisioning of Active Directory user accounts to Jive.
As part of this procedure, you are required to provide a user security token you need to request from Jive.com.

    2. In the Jive Admin Password textbox, type the password for this account.

    3. In the Jive Tenant URL textbox, type the Jive tenant URL.

      The Jive tenant URL is URL that is used by your organization to log into Jive.

      Typically, the URL has the following format: www.<organization>.jive.com.

    5. Click the Next button to open the Confirmation page.
