Configuring SAML for Cloudbees


Bitium: All account levels; must be an admin to set up

Cloudbees: Must be an admin to set up

Before you can use SAML with Cloudbees, you’ll need to add the TXT record in your DNS with value cloudbees-domain-verification:(xxxxx).

According to Cloudbees, DNS propagation can take 24 hours if not more. You will also need to reach out to Cloudbees and ask them to validate your domain, prior to setting up SAML.

In Bitium:

  1. Go to “Manage Apps.”

  2. Select “Cloudbees” from the list of installed apps.

  3. Select the “Single Sign-On” tab.

  4. From the dropdown, select “SAML Authentication.”

    Select SAML Authentication

Leave your Bitium window open and continue in a new tab.

In Cloudbees:

  1. Log into your Cloudbees admin account.

  2. Click on the “Settings” gear icon in the top right corner.

  3. Under Account Tools, click on the SAML SSO tab.
