Configure the JumpCloud SSO Application

  1. Access the JumpCloud Administrator Console at https://console.jumpcloud.com.

  4. Optionally, enter Bitglass 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 SP Entity ID field, enter Bitglass.
  10. In the ACS URL field, enter https://portal.us.bitglass.net/sso/acs/.
  11. In the Signature Algorithm field, select 'RSA-SHA256'. If your Service Provider doesn't support 'RSA-SHA256', then select 'RSA-SHA1'.
  12. In the Default Relay State field, enter bg_portal_login.
  13. In the field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  14. Select Activate.
