[Notification] We're upgrading the JumpCloud Support Center the week of September 30th.

Support Center

Single Sign On (SSO) with Asana


  • A public certificate and private key pair are required to successfully connect applications with JumpCloud. After you activate an application, we automatically generate a public certificate and private key pair for you. You can use this pair or upload your own. 
  • In order to successfully complete the integration between JumpCloud and Asana, you must use an administrator account in Asana.
  • Asana supports SAML Single Sign-On for Premium Organizations (not for Premium Workspaces.) Please contact Asana support if you need to convert your account from a Workspace to an Organization (at the same cost).


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 field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  6. (Optional) In the Display Label field, enter a label that will appear beside the Asana logo within the JumpCloud console to guide administrators and users to the connection you have configured.
  7. Select Activate.

Configure the Service Provider

  1. Log in to Asana as an administrator.
  2. Select on your profile photo and select [Organization's Name] Settings from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select the Administration tab.
  4. In the Authentication section, select the Members must log in via SAML radio button.
  5. Ensure that the Members may also log in with email/password checkbox is selected (if desired, you may change this setting once you have tested your single sign-on).
  6. In the Sign-in page 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/asana).
  7. In the X.509 Certificate field, paste the contents of your public certificate; cert.pem per the above prerequisites.
  8. Select Save.
