Integrating JumpCloud SAML SSO and SCIM with Dialpad

  • Updated

Single sign-on (SSO) makes logging into Dialpad easy and convenient. By configuring and enabling this integration, you can log in to Dialpad using SAML-based SSO after you've been authenticated by JumpCloud.

The steps below use an example domain called Wherever applicable, this value should be substituted with the proper domain identifier for your company.

Enabling SAML in Dialpad

1. Log into Dialpad and click on Admin Settings. Next, select My Company from the drop down on top of the screen and click on Authentication on the left pane. Under Authentication, click on SAML. 

2. On the SAML configuration page, click on dropdown menu for Choose your provider and select Custom. You should see a page that looks similar to the image below. Take note of the values for SP SSO Url (ACS) and SP Entity ID. The values will differ based on the domain identifier of your company.


3. Be sure to keep this tab open — we'll be revisiting this page after configuring SAML on JumpCloud.

  3. Next, using the same test user’s (non-admin) browser session, navigate to Dialpad Login in a different tab. Click on Login with Another Provider. Enter the domain of the user and click on Next. After a few redirections, the user should now be logged in to Dialpad.image6.png

Enabling automatic user provisioning

JumpCloud and Dialpad support a SCIM 2.0-based automatic user provisioning system. With the configuration in place, creating user accounts, updates, and deactivation will happen automatically.

  3. Save the key temporarily in a secure way. This will be required in the next section.
