SAML Single Sign On (SSO) into Fisheye/Crucible

Fisheye/Crucible SAML Single Sign On app gives you the ability to enable Single Sign-On through SAML 2.0 for Fisheye/Crucible Software. This app is compatible with all SAML 2.0 Identity Providers.


Here is a list of providers we have already tested with: Identity Provider setup


If you don't find your IDP listed and your application supports SAML 2.0 as an Identity Provider, you can follow the guide given below to enable SSO into Fisheye/Crucible using your application.

Step 1: Setup Identity Provider to enable saml for your module.

Pre-requisite: You will need SAML information from your IDP to configure this app. Please get SAML metadata from your Identity Provider. If your IDP does not have a metadata URL or XML, you need this information from them:

  1. Issuer/ Entity ID
  2. SAML Login URL
  3. SAML Logout URL (only if you want users to logout from IDP when they logout from JIRA)
  4. X.509 Certificate
  5. NameID format (optional)
  6. SAML Login binding type (optional)
  7. SAML Logout binding type (optional)


  • Before following this guide, please keep the above information or SAML metadata/XML to IDP.
  • You will also need to send or setup information in your Identity Provider so that they can configure JIRA as a SAML Service Provider for your account. For this you will need either the SAML metadata or SAML information. We have given more information on how you can get each one of them below.
  • Go to Service Provider Info and give the link shown below to your Identity Provider.When you click on the link, you will be able to view the metadata for the SAML Single Sign On app.

  • If the Identity Provider does not accept metadata, you can give them SAML information manually. Go to service provider tab and get the following information.
  • SP Entity ID / Issuer SP-EntityID / Issuer from Service Provider Info Tab
    ACS URL ACS (AssertionConsumerService) URL from Service Provider Info Tab
    Single Logout URL Single Logout URL from Service Provider Info Tab
    Audience URI Audience URI From Service Provider Info Tab
    Recipient URL Recipient URL from Service Provider Info Tab
    Destination URL Destination URL from Service Provider Info Tab
    Certificate Certificate from Service Provider Info Tab



Step 2: Setup Fisheye/Crucible as Service Provider

With the inforamtion you have been given by your IDP team, you can configure IDP settings in 3 ways:

A. By Metadata URL

  • Click on Import from Metadata in Configure IDP tab
  • Select IDP: Import From Metadata URL
  • Enter IDP metadata URL: Enter your metadata URL
  • If your IDP changes certificates at intervals, you can select Refresh metadata periodically. Select 5 minutes for the best results.
  • Click Import



B. By uploading Metadata XML file

  • Click on Import from Metadata in Configure IDP tab
  • Select IDP: Import from Metadata File
  • Upload IDP metadata file
  • Click Upload



C. Manual Configuration

Go to Configure IDP tab and enter the following details

  • IDP Entity ID
  • Single Sign On URL
  • Single Logout URL
  • X.509 Certificate

Step 3: Setting up Fisheye/Crucible user profile attributes

    We will be setting up user profile attributes for Fisheye/Crucible. If your users are stored in a directory that is Read Only, please check Disable Attribute Mapping in User Profile tab.



    a. Finding correct attributes
  • Go to Configure IDP tab. Scroll down and click on Test Configuration.
  • You will see all the values returned by your IDP to Fisheye/Crucible in a table. If you don't see value for First Name, Last Name, Email or Username, make the required settings in your IDP to return this information.
  • Once you see all the values in Test Configuration, keep the window open and go to User Profile tab.
  • b. Setting profile attributes
  • In this tab, fill the values by matching the name of the attribute. For instance, if the Attribute Name in the Test Configuration window is NameID, enter NameID against Username
  • Setting up both Username and Email is required if you want to let users register. If you want existing users to the only login, configure the attribute using which you will match the user in Fisheye/Crucible.
  • c. Matching a User
    When the user logs into Fisheye/Crucible, one of the user's data/attribute coming in from the IDP is used to search the user in Fisheye/Crucible. This is used to detect the user in Fisheye/Crucible and log in the user to the same account.
  • Go to User Profile tab
  • Select Username or Email for Login/Search Fisheye/Crucible user account by
  • Enter the attribute name from IDP which corresponds to Username or Email using Finding Correct Attributes

Step 4: Assigning groups to users

    We will be setting up user group attributes for Fisheye. If your users are stored in a directory that is Read Only, please check Disable Group Mapping in User Groups tab and skip to Setting default group.


    a. Finding Group Attribute
  • Just like we found Attribute Name for User Profile attributes, we find group attribute.
  • Go to Configure IDP tab. Scroll down and click on Test Configuration.
  • You will see all the values returned by your IDP to Fisheye/Crucible in a table. If you don't see value with groups, make the required settings in your IDP to return group names.
  • Once you see all the values in Test Configuration, keep the window open and go to User Groups tab.
  • Enter the Attribute Name of group against Group Attribute
  • At the bottom of the page, all groups in Fisheye/Crucible are shown. You can map groups in IDP which correspond to Fisheye/Crucible groups. For example, if you want all users in dev-ops and dev groups in IDP to be added to crucible-users, you will need to enter dev-ops;dev against crucible-users
  • If you want user mapping to work for only limited groups in Fisheye/Crucible, check the option Update User Groups

  • b. Setting default group
  • Select the users' Default Group in the tab User Groups. If no group is mapped, users are added by default to this group.

Step 5: SSO Settings

    The settings in SSO Settings tab define the user experience for Single Sign On.
    a. Sign In Settings
  • Set Enable SSO for Fisheye/Crucible Software to allow SSO for Fisheye/Crucible Software users.
  • Set button text for button on login page using Login Button Text
  • Set redirect URL after login using Relay State. Keep this empty for coming back to the same page user started from
  • Enable Auto-redirect to IDP if you want to allow users to login only using IDP. Enable backdoor for emergency

  • c. Sign Out Settings
    Set Logout URL or Logout Template to redirect users after logout action.


    d. SSO Error Settings
    Set error template to redirect users to a custom error page instead of login page. Use this if you have Auto-redirect to IDP enabled.
