[Notification] We're upgrading the JumpCloud Support Center the week of September 16th.

Support Center

Single Sign On (SSO) with Flatter Files

Important: This article contains out-of-date information.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.
  • SAML 2.0 Just-In-Time (JIT) user provisioning is not supported by Flatter Files.
  • Before SSO may be enabled, the Flatter Files support team must approve your organization’s domain (that should be used in all email addresses of users attempting SSO). Before configuring SSO in Flatter Files, email support@flatterfiles.com requesting that your domain be approved.
  • Once the administrator has saved the SSO configuration in Flatter Files, users (and the administrator) will only be able to sign in using SSO. To prevent account lockout during testing, we recommend that the configuring administrator sign in to Flatter Files in a browser separate from the one in which he or she will complete testing. If the SSO configuration fails, the administrator will still have access to the account in the other browser and can modify the configuration.

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. Select Upload IdP Private Key and upload the private.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  6. Select Upload IdP Certificate and upload the cert.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  7. In the field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  8. (Optional) In the Display Label field, enter a label that will appear under the Service Provider logo within the JumpCloud User console.
  9. Select Activate.

Configure the Service Provider

  1. Log in to Flatter Files as an administrator.
  2. Select DASHBOARD.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Select on the Company tab.
  5. Check the box next to Use SAML 2.0 for Authentication.
  6. Select Configure SAML.
  7. In the Domain field, enter the domain that has been approved by Flatter Files.
  8. In the Identity Provider URL field, 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/flatterfiles).
  9. In the Identity Provider Certificate field, paste your entire public certificate without the BEGIN and END CERTIFICATE.
  10. Select Update.
