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

Support Center

Single Sign On (SSO) with HackerOne

Important: This article contains out-of-date information.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



  • How to configure User authorization.
  • Once the administrator has migrated users to SSO in HackerOne, both users and administrators will only be able to sign in via SSO. To prevent account lockout during testing, we recommend that the configuring administrator sign in to HackerOne 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/disable 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. 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 HackerOne as an administrator.
  2. Select the down arrow in the upper right corner to show a drop-down menu.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Select Authentication.
  5. Select Add SAML settings.
  6. In the Email Domain field, enter the email domain of users who will authenticate via SAML SSO.
  7. In the Single Sign On 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/hackerone).
  8. In the X509 Certificate field, paste in the entire contents of your public certificate.
  9. Select Save.
  10. Select Run Test.
  11. Select Start Test Now and you should be redirected to the JumpCloud User Console.
  12. If necessary, log in to the JumpCloud User Console and you should be redirected back to HackerOne.
  13. If your test was successful, select Request Verification.
  14. Once HackerOne has verified your configuration (you will receive an email notification), select Migrate Users.
  15. When prompted with “Are you sure you want to do this?”, select OK.
