Single Sign On (SSO) with SimpleMDM



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 SimpleMDM for the Display Label. This label will appear under the Service Provider logo in 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. In the SP Entity ID field, enter the value from the Audience field. You can get this value from SimpleMDM.
  8. In the ACS URL field, enter the value from the SAML Consumer URL field. You can get this value from SimpleMDM.
  9. In the Signature Algorithm field, select 'RSA-SHA256'. If your Service Provider doesn't support 'RSA-SHA256', then select 'RSA-SHA1'.
  10. In the field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  11. Select Activate.
