Step 1: Start by navigating to the JumpCloud administrator console and select Applications.

Step 2: Click the Plus icon at the top left of the page and search for “SAML”.

Step 3: Select configure on the “SAML” option.

Step 4: In the IDP Entity ID field, enter a unique name to help identify the application. We suggest using "Continu".

Step 5: Generate and upload the IDP Private Key and Certificate Pair. For more information, please see JumpCloud SAML Configuration Notes.

Step 6: In the SP ENTITY ID Field type https://[yourdomain].continu.co/saml/consume
 
*replacing [your domain]
with the subdomain of your Continu instance.

Step 7: Copy and paste the same value from Step 6 in the ACS URL field.

Step 8: In the SAML Subject NameID field, enter email.

Step 9: In the SAMLSubject NameID format field, enter urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress

Step 10: Underneath USER ATTRIBUTES, select the Add Attribute button.

Step 11: In the name column type firstName and in the value column type firstname. *Please note - the casing is very important

Step 12: Click Add Attribute once more and type lastName for the name and lastname for the value paying very close attention to the letter casing.

Step 13: In the IDP URL field, append a unique name to the URL to set where Continu will send SAML requests and users will authenticate. Eg: continu-[your domain]

Step 14: Click the green Create button.

Step 15: From the applications page, select the Continu SAML application and click export metadata in the bottom right. This will download some xml metadata for the integration

Step 16: Open the xml file and copy everything after <ds:X509Certificate> and before </ds:X509Certificate>. This is your certificate and should be treated with care. It will need to be formatted with a header for the next step. This can be done by navigating to: https://www.samltool.com/format_x509cert.php

Step 17: Navigate back to your Continu instance, go to Admin > Settings > Integrations. Select SAML 2.0 from the integration list.

Step 18: Under SAML 2.0 Endpoint, paste the full URL you created in Step 13.

Step 19: Under X.509 Certificate, paste the formatted certificate from Step 16.

Step 20: Click Submit and the SAML Integration is now complete! 

All you need to do is give your users permission to access the Continu application from JumpCloud.
