Entra sync (Automatic user provisioning)

Entra sync

Entra sync links your IRIS Clarity Enterprise Application (set up in Microsoft Azure) directly to the IRIS account dashboard, allowing you to manage your IRIS users from Microsoft Azure.



If you have set up SSO with Microsoft Azure, you will need to add users to both the Enterprise Application in Azure and the IRIS Clarity dashboard. With Entra Sync activated, the adding and removing of users to the IRIS Clarity dashboard is fully automated so you only need to manage them in Azure.


To enable Entra sync, you must have set up SSO with Microsoft Azure. Entra sync then uses the Azure provisioning feature of Microsoft Entra ID to add and remove users.

You will need to have the following permissions,

  • IRIS Clarity: Admin

  • Microsoft Azure: Application Administrator, Cloud Application Administrator or Global Administrator role.


Full instructions to set up SSO can also be found in the SSO section of the settings area in the dashboard.
