SSO provides end users with a single set of credentials to access all of their applications. This helps users avoid lock-out delays due to forgetting their password because they only have to remember one. End users also don’t have to enter 50 different credentials to access all of their tools. Instead, users log in to their JumpCloud User Portal, and from there can access their applications with just a click, reducing hassle and allowing more time to focus on work.
Using JumpCloud’s SSO feature helps IT admins to create one place to manage user access to all of the applications in the admin’s environment. This lets admins increase security by centrally enforcing security policies, and enables them to take care of sensitive matters, like compromised credentials, quickly.
If you don’t see a connector for an application that your organization uses, you can connect it to JumpCloud with the SAML 2.0 Connector. Also known as the Custom SAML App, this connector can be used with any application that supports SAML-based SSO. Be aware that you need in-depth knowledge of the service provider’s SAML compatibility and requirements to use the SAML 2.0 connector.
Use JumpCloud OpenID Connect (OIDC) Single Sign On (SSO) to give your users secure and convenient access to their OIDC-capable web applications with a single set of credentials. You can use the Custom OIDC App connector with any application that supports OIDC-based SSO.
Preconfigured OIDC applications are not currently available in the JumpCloud catalog. For now, you must use the Custom OIDC App to configure OIDC applications. You need in-depth knowledge of the relying party’s (RP) OIDC capabilities and requirements to use the OIDC connector.
