Managing Application IDP Certificate and Key Pairs

IDP Certificate and Key Pairs
An IDP certificate and private key pair are required to successfully connect applications with JumpCloud. This certificate and key pair are used during SAML handshakes to successfully authenticate users during an SSO login. 
After you activate an application, we automatically generate a public certificate and private key pair for you. You can use this pair or upload your own from the Application Details panel. Learn how to generate an IDP certificate and private key pair.


Managing IPD Certificates and Private Keys


You can upload, download, and regenerate application IDP certificates from the Application Details panel. Additionally, you can view the status for both certificate and public key on the Application Details panel, including the certificate’s expiration date. Certificate and key status is indicated as grey if there isn’t a certificate or key detected for the application. Status is indicated as green if a certificate and key are detected.
