Integrate with BrowserStack

Use JumpCloud SAML Single Sign On (SSO) to give your users convenient but secure access to all their web applications with a single set of credentials. Automatically provision, update and deprovision users in BrowserStack from JumpCloud using the Identity Management (SCIM) integration. Leverage this integration to centralize user lifecycle, user identity, and group management in JumpCloud for BrowserStack. Save time and avoid mistakes, as well as potential security risks, related to manually creating users.

Read this article to learn how to setup the BrowserStack integration.

Prerequisites

  • A JumpCloud administrator account.
  • JumpCloud SSO Package or higher or SSO add-on feature.
  • BrowserStack Enterprise plan.
  • A BrowserStack user account with Owner permissions.
  • SAML SSO configuration is required to use SCIM.

Important Considerations

  • BrowserStack SCIM API is based on version 2.0 of the SCIM standard.
  • If you need to update the SCIM token, you must deactivate the IdM integration, update the token, and then reactivate the integration.
  • Groups are not supported.

Attribute Considerations

  • A default set of attributes are managed for users. See the Attribute Mappings section for more details.
  • The following custom attributes aren’t supported by Jumpcloud and will have the default values set by BrowserStack:
Custom Attribute Name Default Value
bstack_role User
bstack_team Group
bstack_product empty or null value

  3. Select the User Groups tab. If you need to create a new group of users, see Get Started: User Groups.
  4. Select the check box next to the group of users you want to give access.
  5. Click save

To learn how to authorize user access from the Groups Configuration panel, see Authorize Users to an SSO Application.

Importing Users

This functionality is helpful if users have already been created in the application but have not been created in JumpCloud.

  1. Log in to the JumpCloud Admin Portal.
  2. Go to USER AUTHENTICATION > SSO Applications.
  3. Search for the application and click to open its configuration panel. 
  4. Select the Identity Management tab.
  5. Click manual import.
  6. Select the users you want to create in JumpCloud from the application from the list of users that appear. Users in the list have two import statuses:
    • New – user has not been imported.
    • Imported – user has been imported and has an account in JumpCloud.

Tip: Try using the New Users-only filter when selecting users to import. This will move all of your new users to the top of the list, making them easier to identify and select.

  1. Click import.
    • If you are importing less than 100 users, your import results will display in real time and you can continue onboarding your users. 
    • If you have more than 100 users being imported, JumpCloud will send you an email when your import is complete.
  1. You can now connect and grant users access to all their JumpCloud resources. Learn more in the Authorize Users to an Application and Connecting Users to Resources articles.

Warning: Imported users must be members of a user group bound to an application for JumpCloud to manage their identity in, and access to, the application.
