Important: This article contains out-of-date information.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


Prerequisites

Notes
  • How to configure User authorization.
  • After SSO is enabled, you can select the Allow logging with password option to allow logging in with username and password. If this option isn’t selected, any attempts to use a username and password to log in to Abacus result in an error.
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 Automox for the Display Label. This label will appear under the Service Provider logo within the JumpCloud User Portal.
  5. 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 field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  10. Optionally, enter Constant Attributes. Any name/value pair you list here will be sent for all users in the AttributeStatement block.
  11. Select Activate.
Configure the Service Provider
  1. Log in to Abacus with an admin account.
  2. Go to the Settings > Authentication.
  3. Select the Your team logs in with Single Sign On vial SAML option.
  4. Enter your Sign-in page URL. This is the name set for the IdP URL in JumpCloud.
  5. Enter your Identity Provider Issuer. This is the name set for the IdP Entity ID in JumpCloud.
  6. Enter your x509 certificate.
