Cloud Applications

AWS SSO has built-in support for commonly used cloud applications, such as Adobe Creative Cloud, AppDynamics, Box, Confluence, DocuSign, Domo, Dropbox, G Suite, GitHub, GoToMeeting, Jira, Keeper Security, NewRelic, Office 365, PagerDuty, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Slack, SugarCRM, SumoLogic, Tableau, Workplace by Facebook, ZenDesk, and Zoom.

Most cloud applications come with detailed instructions on how to set up the trust between AWS SSO and the application's service provider. You can find these instructions on the cloud applications configuration page during the setup process and after the application has been set up. Once the application has been configured, you can then assign access to the groups or users that require it.

Add and Configure a Cloud Application

Use this procedure when you need to set up a SAML trust relationship between AWS SSO and your cloud application's service provider. Before you begin this procedure, make sure you have the service provider's metadata exchange file so that you can more efficiently set up the trust. If you do not have this file, you can still use this procedure to configure it manually.

To add and configure a cloud application

  1. In the AWS SSO console, choose Applications in the left nav, and then choose Add a new application.

  2. In the Select an application dialog box, select the application you want to add from the list, and then choose Add.

  3. On the Configure <application name> page, under Details, type a Display name for the application. For example, Salesforce.

  4. Under AWS SSO metadata, do the following:

    1. Next to AWS SSO SAML metadatafile, choose Download to download the identity provider metadata.

    2. Next to AWS SSO certificate, choose Download certificate to download the identity provider certificate.


    You will need these files later when you set up the cloud application from the service provider's website. Follow the instructions from that provider.

  5. Under Application metadata, next to Application certificate, choose Browse to upload the service provider's certificate. This certificate is required to establish a secure connection between AWS SSO and the service provider.

  6. Choose Save changes to save the configuration.
