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

Support Center

Single Sign On (SSO) with Drupal



  • 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.
  • You can upload a service provider application’s XML metadata file to populate SAML 2.0 connector attributes for that application. The attributes populated by the metadata file may vary by 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.
