Support Center

Single Sign On (SSO) with Evernote

Important: This article contains out-of-date information. For current application information, see Connecting Applications with JumpCloud Using Pre-Built Connectors.

Prerequisites:

Notes:

  • How to configure User authorization.
  • Evernote's implementation of Single Sign-On still requires the end user to log into Evernote with their password. This is because Evernote Business is actually an overlay of a Business account onto the user's personal account. Once they have authenticated to their personal account, Evernote will use Single Sign-On to grant access to the business account notebooks.

Configure the JumpCloud SSO Application

  1. Access the JumpCloud Administrator Console at https://console.jumpcloud.com.
  2. Select Applications in the main navigation panel.
  3. Select the + in the upper left, scroll or search for the application in the 'Configure New Application' side panel, the select 'configure'.
  4. You can upload a service provider application's XML metadata file to populate SAML connector attributes for that application. The attributes populated by the metadata file may vary by the application. To apply a metadata file for the application you're connecting, click Upload Metadata. Navigate to the file you want to upload, then click Open. You'll see a confirmation of a successful upload. Be aware that if you upload more than one metadata file, you'll overwrite the attribute values applied in the previously uploaded file.
  5. In the IDP Entity ID field, enter https://YOURDOMAIN.TLD (e.g., https://thebestwidgets.com).
  6. Select Upload IdP Private Key and upload the private.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  7. Select Upload IdP Certificate and upload the cert.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  8. In the field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  9. (Optional) In the Display Label field, enter a label that will appear under the Service Provider logo within the JumpCloud User console.
  10. Select Activate.

Configure the Service Provider

  1. Log in to Evernote for Business as an administrator.
  2. Select on the Admin Console link in the bottom left.
  3. Select Single Sign-on in the left-hand sidenav.
  4. For the SAML HTTP Request URL, enter the same IdP URL that you set in the JumpCloud console (if you did not modify the termination of this URL, then enter the default URL: https://sso.jumpcloud.com/saml2/evernote)
  5. For the X.509 Certificate, paste in the contents of your certificate.
  6. (Optional) For Session Duration, select `Override SessionNotOnOrAfter and make SSO authorizations expire after this many days:', then specify the desired number of days before users must re-authenticate to JumpCloud in order to access your Business notebooks.
  7. Select Save & Enable.

(Optional) To automatically add users from your domain to your Evernote for Business account

IMPORTANT NOTE: Using this configuration, users that have an email associated with your domains will automatically get added to your Evernote for Business account when they log in (and perform SSO.) This configuration will use your licenses for all users logging in with an email from one of your domains.

  1. Log in to Evernote for Business as an administrator
  2. Select on the Admin Console link in the bottom left
  3. Select on Add Users in the left-hand sidenav
  4. Under Add email domain, enter your domain(s) in the Company email domain field
  5. Select Add
  6. You will receive a confirmation email. After completing the steps in the email, any Evernote account that is registered to your domain will be automatically added to your Evernote for Business account. If you wish to limit which accounts can do this, please see the note above regarding the SSO-Evernote tag.
