Integrate with Figma

Give your users convenient but secure Single Sign On (SSO) access to Figma using their JumpCloud credentials with the SSO integration. Automatically provision, update and deprovision users and groups in Figma from JumpCloud using the Identity Management (SCIM) integration. Leverage this integration to allow users to login with with one set of credentials and to centralize user lifecycle, user identity, and group management in JumpCloud for Figma. Save time and cost related to user account and password management. Avoid mistakes, as well as potential security risks, related to manually creating users and groups.

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

Prerequisites

Important Considerations

  • It is not possible to assign permissions in Figma from JumpCloud. Figma will add provisioned users to your Organization as viewers.
  • When you have SCIM set up, you can choose which of the advanced attributes you want to access in Figma.
  • You need to decide if logging in via SAML SSO is mandatory, or if users can still login via email address and password. Learn about Figma authentication options.
  • The sync will occur in real-time whenever changes are made to users and/or groups in JumpCloud.
  • JumpCloud cannot take over management of user accounts created directly in Figma There is currently no option for converting these users to JumpCloud SCIM managed users.  Those accounts will need to continue to be managed manually or delete and recreated using the SCIM integration.
  • Groups are supported. 

Attribute Considerations

  • A default set of attributes are managed for users. See the Attribute Mappings section for more details.

Group Management Considerations

Enabling Group Management

You must select the Enable management of User Groups and Group Membership in this application option to manage groups and group membership in the application from JumpCloud.

Group Provisioning and Syncing 
  • Empty groups are not created.
  • JumpCloud takes over management of existing groups in the application when the user group name in JumpCloud matches the name of the group in the application.
  • All user groups associated with the application in JumpCloud are synced. Syncing occurs whenever there is a membership or group change event.
  • Group renaming is supported.
  • If a user group is disassociated from the application in JumpCloud, syncing immediately stops and the group is left as-is in the application. All members of that user group are deactivated in the application unless they are associated with another active application group that is managed from JumpCloud.
Group Deletion
  • Managed groups deleted in JumpCloud are deleted in the application.
  • All members of the deleted group are deactivated in the application, unless they are associated with another active application group that is managed from JumpCloud.
Disabling Group Management
  • You can disable group and group membership management by unchecking the Enable management of User Groups and Group Membership in this application option.
  • The managed groups and group membership are left as-is in the application.
  • JumpCloud stops sending group membership information for the user, but the user’s identity will continue to be managed from JumpCloud.
