Integrating with an Identity Provider

Before deploying and configuring Jamf Connect apps, you must integrate Jamf Connect with your cloud identity provider (IdP). This must be completed with settings available through your IdP's administrator console, portal, or a similar tool.

To determine what IdPs are supported with each Jamf Connect app, see General Requirements and IdP Compatibility.

To integrate Jamf Connect with Okta, use Okta's Authentication API.

To integrate Jamf Connect with IdPs using OpenID Connect (OIDC) for authentication, the following workflow is generally used:

  1. Add Jamf Connect Login as an app in your IdP—Follow the IdP specific steps in this guide to add the app to your IdP. Adding the app will generate a Client ID, which is used to configure Jamf Connect Login.

  2. Assign users and designate user roles—Add users or roles to the app as needed. Configuring a role allows you to determine whether users are created as an "admin" or a "standard" user at login.

  3. Deploy Jamf Connect—Deploy Jamf Connect apps with a package installer, similar to other applications installed on macOS.
