OneLogin’s Single Sign On service provides companies with the capability to provide a unified set of credentials to leading SaaS-applications. The product provides the ability to consume identity from master directories such as LDAP or Microsoft’s Active Directory®. In this brief article, we’ll show you the simple step-by-step instructions to integrate OneLogin through JumpCloud’s LDAP Service.
Initial set-up: Preparing JumpCloud as the LDAP directory
Before OneLogin can be integrated with JumpCloud to access the user identities managed in its cloud-based directory, the following steps need to be completed to ensure OneLogin can communicate effectively via ldapsearch.
1) Turn the LDAP Service ‘On’
In JumpCloud’s ‘Settings’ enable the LDAP service…
Once enabled. JumpCloud will unveil certain customer-specific data, aspects of which will be required in setting up ldapsearch in the steps below…
2) Create an LDAP Service User Account
When utilizing LDAP, JumpCloud recommends the use of a binding user service account. This user will act as a true service account, enabling ldap to search the user directory as the Bind DN. To create this user:
- Go to Users and ‘Add User’
- Fill in the properties of this service account in the manner you wish. An example is below.
- Most critically, ensure ‘LDAP binding user service account’ is enabled.
- Enter a password for the service account to ensure the account is ‘verified’ and active.
With the LDAP Service Account User Created, it’s time to configure OneLogin to communicate with JumpCloud’s directory.
3) Configuring OneLogin to Consume Identities from JumpCloud (through LDAP)
Logged in as a OneLogin administrator, select Users>Directories> Add a New Directory from the main/top level menu. Once selected choose LDAP VIA SSL:
Once selected, you will be presented with a straightforward configuration screen where you will input the following LDAP parameters to connect to JumpCloud via its LDAP Service:
