AzureAD Group Mapping for GP



We're currently implementing GlobalProtect with SAML Authentification to AzureAD only (no hybrid) based on groups for easier management.


Example :

Groupe1 is given an IP_Pool1 IP with access to subnet1

Groupe2 is given an IP_Pool2 IP with access to subnet 1 and 2


As of today, we didn't find any way to do it properly and from what we've seen online it may not be supported at all without any third party or on-prem AD.


Did any of you ran into that issue before and did you find the solution?





Will do - thanks for you input.

Yeah that is what i found as well.  What i ended up doing, on an ASA, is authenticating my users to Azure, but then using secondary authorization to the internal AD user to map the users to specific groups.


Here you go:

tunnel-group NA_Azure_SAML type remote-access
tunnel-group NA_Azure_SAML general-attributes
address-pool VPN_Pool_1
authorization-server-group AAA-VPN-Users
default-group-policy NoAccess
tunnel-group NA_Azure_SAML webvpn-attributes
authentication saml
group-alias VPN-Secured enable
saml identity-provider


So the process is it authenticates to Azure SAML, but authorization is AAA-VPN-Users (which is AD).  it looks for a security group tied to the end user and then maps that security group to a policy group on the ASA.  This took awhile for me to figure out and get working.  But saved me a lot of work in the long run because we have so many policy group mappings to security groups.

I believe the Cloud Identity Engine can now get groups from AzureAD.
