Testing Cloud Authentication

If you used Jamf Connect Configuration to create a configuration profile, you can test your authentication settings to ensure your configuration profile successfully authenticates users to your cloud identity provider (IdP). You can test the following:

  • Authentication via OpenID Connect

  • Authentication via Okta's authentication API

  • Password verification via a Resource Owner Password Grant (ROPG)

Testing OpenID Connect Authentication

  1. In Jamf Connect Configuration, click Test > OIDC.

  2. Log in with a valid username and password that has been assigned Jamf Connect Login in your IdP's admin console, portal, or a similar tool. One of the following will occur:

    • If you successfully authenticate, your configuration is working and ready to save.

    • If you are unable to authenticate, your configuration needs additional settings or contains errors. Review your settings and repeat the testing process.

  3. Click Save to create your configuration profile.
    If saving as a .mobileconfig file, complete the configuration profile metadata fields.

Testing Okta Authentication

  1. In Jamf Connect Configuration, click Test > Okta.

  2. Enter a valid username and password and click Sign In. One of the following will occur:

    • If you successfully authenticate, your configuration is working and ready to save.

    • If you are unable to authenticate, your configuration needs additional settings or contains errors. Review your settings and repeat the testing process.

  3. Click Save to create your configuration profile.
    If saving as a .mobileconfig file, complete the configuration profile metadata fields.

Testing Password Verification

To ensure ROPG authentication, which Jamf Connect uses for password verification and synchronization, is correctly configured, do the following:

  1. In Jamf Connect Configuration, click Test > ROPG.

  2. Enter a valid username and password and click Sign In. One of the following will occur:

    • If you successfully authenticate your configuration is working and ready to save.

    • If you are unable to authenticate, your configuration needs additional settings or contains errors. Review your settings and repeat the testing process.

  3. Click Save to create your configuration profile.
    If saving as a .mobileconfig file, complete the configuration profile metadata fields.
