Enabling SAML for Envoy

  1. Go to Directory Settings

  2. Locate SAML and click “Install”.

  3. Enter the fingerprint from your IdP in the Fingerprint field.

(Optional) Set SAML to required

If you'd like to configure SAML as required, we recommend first setting up SAML as optional and testing with a small group of users. Once you're sure SAML is working properly for your users, switch it to required.

  1. Locate SAML and click “Configure”.

  2. Toggle “Required” to the “on” position.

Global admins will always be able to authenticate with a password regardless of if requiring SAML is on or off.

You can connect Envoy to any SSO provider with SAML 2.0. We’ve provided guides for a few common IdPs:

If you'd like to configure SAML with JumpCloud as your IdP, this is possible. You can use the token from Okta or Active Directory. You'll need to install Okta or AD on your account and then take the token that's generated and use that on the JumpCloud side.
