Single Sign On (SSO) with SnowFlake



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, then select 'configure'.
  4. Optionally, enter SnowFlake for the Display Label. This label will appear under the Service Provider logo within the JumpCloud User Portal.
  5. Though it's not required, 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.
  6. In the IDP Entity ID field, enter https://YOURDOMAIN.TLD (e.g., https://thebestwidgets.com).
  7. Select Upload IdP Private Key and upload the private.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  8. Select Upload IdP Certificate and upload the cert.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  9. In the SP Entity ID field, enter https://Account_Name.snowflakecomputing.com, where Account_Name, matches with your Account Name, from Snowflake
  10. In the ACS URL field, enter https://Account_Name.snowflakecomputing.com, where Account_Name, matches with your Account Name, from Snowflake
  11. In the field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  12. Select Activate.

Configure the Service Provider

  1. Log in to your SnowFlake Computing account.
  2. Click Worksheet.
  3. Paste this query into the worksheet:
alter account set saml_identity_provider = '{
  "certificate": "",
  "ssoUrl": "",
  "type": "custom"
  1. Add your certificate (IdP Certificate from JumpCloud) and ssoUrl (IdP URL from JumpCloud) to the query by copying and pasting the code that's between "——BEGIN CERTIFICATE——" and "——END CERTIFICATE——". It should look like this:
alter account set saml_identity_provider = '{
  "certificate": "Your certificate",
  "ssoUrl": "Your ssoUrl",
  "type": "custom"
  1. Click run.
  2. Delete the last query, and paste this one into the worksheet:
alter account set sso_login_page = true;
  1. Click run.
