Single Sign On (SSO) with Pluralsight

Prerequisites:

Notes:

  • How to configure User authorization.
  • The JumpCloud administrator performing the integrations will only configure SSO for the IdP, or JumpCloud. After JumpCloud is configured, the administrator will send the IdP configuration details to Pluralsight. Pluralsight will configure the SAML 2.0 connection and contact the account administrator.

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, the select 'configure'.
  4. 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.
  5. In the IDP Entity ID field, enter https://YOURDOMAIN.TLD (e.g., https://thebestwidgets.com).
  6. Select Upload IdP Private Key and upload the private.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  7. Select Upload IdP Certificate and upload the cert.pem file generated according to the above prerequisites.
  8. In the field terminating the IdP URL, either leave the default value or enter a plaintext string unique to this connector.
  9. (Optional) In the Display Label field, enter a label that will appear under the Service Provider logo within the JumpCloud User console.
  10. Select Activate.
  11. Select export metadata for Pluralsight on the right hand side of the page.

Configure the Service Provider

  1. Email your sales contact at Pluralsight and request that SAML single sign-on be enabled for your account.
  2. Once your Pluralsight sales contact connects you with a support representative, you will need to provide the following information:
    • Your IdP metadata file (this is the file you exported from the JumpCloud console)
    • The attribute names sent by JumpCloud, which are: firstName, lastName, and email
  3. Your Pluralsight support representative should provide you with a URL for SP-initiated SSO.

Validate SSO authentication workflows

IdP Initiated

  • Access the JumpCloud User Console at https://console.jumpcloud.com.
  • Select the Service Provider icon.
  • This should automatically launch and login to the application.

SP Initiated

  • Navigate to your Service Provider application URL.
  • You will be redirected to log in to the JumpCloud User Portal.
  • The browser will be redirected back to the application and be automatically logged in.
