In this tutorial, you will learn how to use JumpCloud SSO with V2 Cloud. This is an identity management third party application. Once set up, it allows you to control everything your users can access from a single dashboard.
Login to JumpCloud as an administrator.
Navigate to SSO on the left tab and select the green +.
Select Custom SAML app at the bottom.
Enter the Display Name and put a logo (optional). Scroll down and enter https://v2cloud.com in the IdP Entity ID and SP Entity ID fields to generate the certificate. We will change all the fields later. Scroll again and change the last part of the IdP URL to something unique (v2tuto here). Leave the rest blank and click Activate.
Download the certificate. A popup will appear in the top right corner of your screen.
Click on the application you just created and replace the IdP Entity ID with IdP URL you entered in STEP 4 (https://sso.jumpcloud.com/saml2/v2tuto in this example). Keep this page open.
Open your Dashboard in V2 Cloud and go to SSO connectors and select Add a new SAML connector.
Enter IdP URL you chose from STEP 4 (https://sso.jumpcloud.com/saml2/v2tuto here) in the 3 field and copy paste the entire certificate you downloaded in the Certificate field. The certificate is a .pem file and can be opened with Notepad. Click Submit.
Select Action on the right of the new Identity provider you created and Link VMs. Select the VM of your choice and then Submit. You can link more than 1 VM if needed.
Select Action on the right again and Display SP configuration. Keep this page open.
Go back to the JumpCloud page you kept open in STEP 6 and fill out the fields with the information from STEP 10 as shown below. Enter /cloud/ in the Default Relay State field.
Scroll down and change the fields as shown below and then go to User Groups and check All users. Click Save.
You need to install the JumpCloud agent on your VM in the administrator session to allow JumpCloud to create users in your V2 Cloud instance. Go to your JumpCloud admin dashboard and select Device in the left tab to select the green +. Be sure you are logged-in with the administrator session in your V2 Cloud instance first.
Select Windows and Download Windows Agent. Follow the instruction for the installation and copy the key in the installation window when asked.
In your administrator session in V2 Cloud; open Control Panel and go to System. Select Advanced network setting and go to Remote. Uncheck the last option to disable Network Level Authentication.
Go to LDAP in your JumpCloud administrator dashboard, click on the green + and then Save.
Select Users on the left tab and then the green +. Fill all the required fields. Scroll down and select Specify initial password and enter the user password.
Go to the User Groups tab and check All users. Go to the Devices tab and check the one you installed on the VM. Go to the Directories tab and check JumpCloud LDAP. Click Save.
Everything is now configured. Go to the V2 Cloud login screen and select Login with SSO. Enter the SSO Identifier you entered in STEP 8 (JumpCloud Tutorial here). Enter the email address and the password you created for your user in JumpCloud. On the Windows login screen. You need to enter the Username you chose for JumpCloud (v2cloudtuto here) and the same password. The last step is only required the first time you login.
You are done. You can now use JumpCloud as your identity provider.
