Connect Apps Using Bookmarks

Use Application Bookmarks to connect users to resources that don’t support SAML Single Sign On (SSO). These would include LDAP-based applications, the company intranet, applications serviced through a password manager, and services connected to JumpCloud through directory integrations, like G suite, Microsoft Office 365, or Active Directory. This is one way to communicate to your users all the resources they have access to, including those using their JumpCloud password.

Configuring a Bookmark

To connect an application using a Bookmark

  1. Log in to the JumpCloud Admin Portal.
  2. Go to USER AUTHENTICATION > SSO Applications.
  3. Click + Add New Application.
  4. Click Select in the Custom Application tile, enter a name for the new application and then click Next.


You can also find the Bookmark connector by searching for it. 

  1. Select Add a Bookmark (no SSO) and click Next.
  2. Enter a Display Label.
    • Users will see this display name for the bookmark in their User Portal, and Administrators will see it in the Configured Applications list view on the SSO page. 
  3. In the Description field, provide information to users about the Bookmark and how to access it. 
  4. Under User Portal Image, upload your own logo or select a color.

User Experience

  1. The user logs in to their JumpCloud User Portal.
  2. The user finds an application with a bookmark symbol in the left corner, then clicks it.
