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

Support Center

Single Sign On (SSO) with WordPress



  • After you connect an application to JumpCloud, you can connect it to user groups. Users in the groups you connect can access the application through SAML SSO. Learn how to connect user groups to applications.
  • The miniOrange WordPress plugin is third party, open source software and is not maintained by JumpCloud

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. For SP ENTITY ID, enter the value shown for this item under Step 1 on the Identity Provider tab of the miniOrange SAML plugin configuration.
  7. For ACS URL, enter the enter the value shown for this item under Step 1 on the Identity Provider tab of the miniOrange SAML plugin configuration.
  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.

Configure the Service Provider

  1. Enter an Identity Provider Name
  2. For IdP Entity ID or Issuer, enter the same value entered in the JumpCloud configuration.
  3. For SAML Login URL, enter the IDP URL entered in the JumpCloud configuration.
  4. For X.509 Certificate, enter the contents of the cert.pem generated in the prerequisites.
  5. (Optional) On Attribute Mapping, in the First Name field, enter 'givenname', for Last Name, enter 'surname'. This will map the name attributes in the JumpCloud directory to WordPress and populate that data in the Wordpress user record.
