SimpleMDM integrates with JumpCloud using the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) standard.This guide will explain how to designate an JumpCloud account as a trusted identity provider (IdP) for authenticating administrators of your SimpleMDM account.
As the JumpCloud user interface may change, this guide has been written to provide a general process for getting up and running.
- Sign in to the JumpCloud admin console.
- Go to Applications.
- Click the "+" to configure a new application.
- Enter "SAML" in the search bar.
- Locate the SAML listing and click 'Configure'.
- In the 'IDP Entity ID' field, enter your unique URL or identifier.
- Generate a 'private.pem' file, click 'Upload IdP Privacy Key' and upload the file.
- Generate a 'cert.pem' file, click 'Upload IdP Certificate' and upload the file.
