MS Graph API Java Connector

The MS Graph API Java connector uses the MS Graph SDK for Java and the Authentication Providers for the MS Graph Java SDK. Unlike the PowerShell connector for Azure, the MS Graph API connector is a Java connector, and does not need a .NET RCS to run. As a Java connector, the MS Graph API connector functions like any standard Identity Cloud connector.

The MS Graph API connector can read, search, and fetch data from Microsoft Azure, when Azure is the authoritative data source, and can provision to Azure, when Identity Cloud is the authoritative data source.

The MS Graph API connector is bundled with Identity Cloud, and available from the ForgeRock Download Center. The connector bundles all its dependencies.

Before You Start

Before you can use the connector, you must register an application with Azure. You need a Microsoft Azure subscription to complete this procedure:

  1. Log in to the Microsoft Azure portal as an administrative user.

  2. Under Azure services , select App registrations.

  3. On the Register an application page, enter a name for the application; for example, FR-Connector.

  4. Select the supported account types, and enter a Redirect URI.

    The redirect URI is the Identity Cloud URI that Azure should redirect to after successful authentication; for example, https://idm.example.com:8443/.

  5. On the new registration page for your application, make a note of the Application (client) ID and the Directory (tenant) ID. You will need these to configure the connector:

    shared:ms-graph-api-app

  6. Generate a client secret:

    1. Select Certificates & secrets > New client secret .

    2. Enter a description, select an expiration date, and click Add.

    3. Copy the client secret Value:

      shared:ms-graph-api-secret
    You will not be able to retrieve the client secret in cleartext after you exit this screen.
  7. Set the API permissions:

    1. Select API permissions, click Microsoft Graph, and then click Application permissions.

      shared:ms-graph-api-app-permissions
    2. From the User item, select the following permissions:

      • User.Export.All

      • User.ManageIdentities.All

      • User.Read.All

      • User.ReadWrite.All

    3. From the Group item, select the following permissions:

      • Group.Create

      • Group.Read.All

      • Group.ReadWrite.All

    4. From the Directory item, select the following permissions:

      • Directory.Read.All

      • Directory.ReadWrite.All

    5. Click Add permissions .

  8. Grant admin consent for the API permissions:

    On the Configured permissions page, Grant admin consent for org-name, then click Yes.

    shared:ms-graph-api-consent

Configure the MS Graph API Connector

  1. Identity Cloud bundles version 1.5.20.2 of the MS Graph API connector in the openidm/connectors directory. Alternatively, download the connector .jar file from the ForgeRock Download Center

  2. Create a configuration for the connector.

    Configure the MS Graph API connector through the Admin UI (select Configure > Connectors), or over REST.

Test the MS Graph API Connector

Start Identity Cloud, if it is not running. Then use these examples to test that the connector is configured correctly and operating as expected:

Check the Connector Configuration
curl \
--header "Authorization: Bearer *token*" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request POST \
"https://tenant-name.forgeblocks.com/openidm/system?_action=test"
{
  "name": "azuread",
  "enabled": true,
  "config": "config/provisioner.openicf/azuread",
  "connectorRef": {
    "bundleVersion": "[1.5.19.0,1.6.0.0]",
    "bundleName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.msgraphapi-connector",
    "connectorName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.msgraphapi.MSGraphAPIConnector"
  },
  "displayName": "MSGraphAPI Connector",
  "objectTypes": [
    "subscribedSku",
    "team",
    "user",
    "__ALL__",
    "group"
  ],
  "ok": true
}

A status of "ok": true indicates that the connector is configured correctly.

Manage User Licenses

The MS Graph API connector lets you list the available licenses in your Azure data source, and manage those licenses for specific users:

List Available Licenses in Azure

This command lists the values of the read-only subscribedSku object. For more information about this object class, see the corresponding Microsoft documentation:

curl \
--header "Authorization: Bearer *token*" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request GET \
"https://tenant-name.forgeblocks.com/openidm/system/azuread/subscribedSku?_queryFilter=true"
{
  "result": [
    {
      "_id": "5ee8xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-76dc2c2c30bc_f245ecc8-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx114de5f3",

          "appliesTo": "Company",
          "servicePlanId": "31cxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx122"
        },
        {
          "servicePlanName": "POWER_VIRTUAL_AGENTS_O365_P2",
          "provisioningStatus": "PendingProvisioning",
          "appliesTo": "User",
          "servicePlanId": "041xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxaee"
        },
        {

          "provisioningStatus": "PendingProvisioning",
          "appliesTo": "User",
          "servicePlanId": "95bxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx95a"
        },
        ...
      ]
    }
  ],
  ...
}
List a User’s Licenses

Each user object can include a read-only licenses property that contains an array of objects (maps).

This command lists a specific user’s licenses:

curl \
--header "Authorization: Bearer *token*" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request GET \
"https://tenant-name.forgeblocks.com/openidm/system/azuread/user/c48be8cc-5846-4059-95e8-a7acbf6aec31?_fields=licenses"
{
    "_id": "c48be8cc-5846-4059-95e8-a7acbf6aec31",
    "licenses": [
        {
            "skuPartNumber": "O365_BUSINESS_PREMIUM",
            "servicePlans": [
                {
                    "servicePlanName": "RMS_S_BASIC",
                    "provisioningStatus": "PendingProvisioning",
                    "appliesTo": "Company",
                    "servicePlanId": "31cxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx122"
                },
                {
                    "servicePlanName": "POWER_VIRTUAL_AGENTS_O365_P2",
                    "provisioningStatus": "PendingProvisioning",
                    "appliesTo": "Company",
                    "servicePlanId": "041xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxaee"
                },
                {
                    "servicePlanName": "CDS_O365_P2",
                    "provisioningStatus": "PendingProvisioning",
                    "appliesTo": "Company",
                    "servicePlanId": "95bxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx95a"
                },
                …​
            ],
            "id": "c8noxxxxsEqoxxxxLCwwxxxxRfKvxxxxth8nxxxx5fM",
            "skuId": "f24xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx5f3"
        }
    ]
}
Add and Remove a User’s Licenses

You cannot manipulate a user’s licenses property directly, because it is read-only. To add or remove licenses for a user, set the addLicenses or removeLicenses properties when you create or update the user.

The connector does not currently support PATCH add or PATCH remove operations. PATCH replace is supported because it is the equivalent of a PUT operation.

This command updates an existing user entry to add a license with the `skuId`f24xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx5f3:

curl \
--header "Authorization: Bearer *token*" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--header "If-None-Match: *" \
--request PUT \
--data '{
  "addLicenses": [
    {
      "skuId": "f24xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx5f3"
    }
  ]
}' \
"https://tenant-name.forgeblocks.com/openidm/system/azuread/user/c48be8cc-5846-4059-95e8-a7acbf6aec31"

This command updates the user entry to remove the license with `skuId`f24xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx5f3:

curl \
--header "Authorization: Bearer *token*" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--header "If-Match: *" \
--request PUT \
--data '{
  "removeLicenses": "f24xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxx5f3"
}' \
"https://tenant-name.forgeblocks.com/openidm/system/azuread/user/c48be8cc-5846-4059-95e8-a7acbf6aec31"

Synchronize Accounts Between Identity Cloud and Azure

To use the MS Graph API connector to synchronize accounts between Identity Cloud and Azure, set up a mapping between the two data stores.

OpenICF Interfaces Implemented by the MSGraphAPI Connector

The MSGraphAPI Connector implements the following OpenICF interfaces. For additional details, see ICF Interfaces:

Authenticate

Provides simple authentication with two parameters, presumed to be a user name and password.

Create

Creates an object and its <literal>uid</literal>.

Delete

Deletes an object, referenced by its <literal>uid</literal>.

Schema

Describes the object types, operations, and options that the connector supports.

Script on Connector

Enables an application to run a script in the context of the connector.

Any script that runs on the connector has the following characteristics:

  • The script runs in the same execution environment as the connector and has access to all the classes to which the connector has access.

  • The script has access to a connector variable that is equivalent to an initialized instance of the connector. At a minimum, the script can access the connector configuration.

  • The script has access to any script arguments passed in by the application.

Search

Searches the target resource for all objects that match the specified object class and filter.

Sync

Polls the target resource for synchronization events, that is, native changes to objects on the target resource.

Test

Tests the connector configuration.

Testing a configuration checks all elements of the environment that are referred to by the configuration are available. For example, the connector might make a physical connection to a host that is specified in the configuration to verify that it exists and that the credentials that are specified in the configuration are valid.

This operation might need to connect to a resource, and, as such, might take some time. Do not invoke this operation too often, such as before every provisioning operation. The test operation is not intended to check that the connector is alive (that is, that its physical connection to the resource has not timed out).

You can invoke the test operation before a connector configuration has been validated.

Update

Updates (modifies or replaces) objects on a target resource.
