JetBrains Hub Integration with AuthPoint

Deployment Overview

This document describes how to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) for JetBrains Hub with AuthPoint as an identity provider. JetBrains Hub must already be configured and deployed before you set up MFA with AuthPoint.—

This integration was tested with JetBrains Hub v2020.1.

JetBrains Hub Authentication Data Flow with AuthPoint

AuthPoint communicates with various cloud-based services and service providers with the SAML protocol. This diagram shows the data flow of an MFA transaction for JetBrains Hub.

Before You Begin

Before you begin these procedures, make sure that:

Configure JetBrains Hub

To start, you must download the metadata file from the Certificate Management page in the AuthPoint management UI. Once you have that, you can configure JetBrains Hub.

  1. Log in to WatchGuard Cloud.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Configure > AuthPoint. If you have a Service Provider account, you must first pivot to your Subscriber view.
  3. Select Resources.
  4. Click Certificate.

  1. Next to AuthPoint certificate you will associate with your resource, click and select Download metadata. We recommend that you choose the certificate with the latest expiration date.

    The AuthPoint metadata provides JetBrains Hub with information necessary to identify AuthPoint as a trusted identity provider.

  1. Next to the same certificate, click and select Copy Fingerprint.
    The Copy Fingerprint window appears.
  2. From the Algorithm drop-down list, select SHA-256.
  3. Click Copy next to the formatted or unformatted fingerprint. We recommend you leave this window open for reference.

  1. Log in to your JetBrains Hub with administrative account.
  2. Click Administration button at the up-right corner, select Auth Modules.

  1. Select New module > SAML 2.0.

  1. Type a name for the module. In our example, we name it AuthPoint.
  2. Open the AuthPoint metadata file you downloaded and find the SingleSignOnService Location and entityID values.
  3. In the SAML SSO URL text box, paste the SingleSignOnService Location value from the AuthPoint metadata file.
  4. In the IdP entity ID text box, paste the entityID value from the AuthPoint metadata file.
  5. In the Certificate fingerprint text box, paste the SHA-256 fingerprint from the Copy Fingerprint window in AuthPoint.

  1. Click Create.
  2. On the details page, copy the SP entity ID and ACS URL values. These are used in the next section to configure the SAML resource in AuthPoint. We recommend you leave this window open for reference.

    You can choose to enable or disable User Creation. If you disable User Creation, user accounts must match in AuthPoint and JetBrains Hub.

  3. Click Save.

Configure AuthPoint

Before AuthPoint can receive authentication requests from JetBrains Hub, you must add a SAML resource in AuthPoint. You must also create an authentication policy for the JetBrains Hub resource to determine which users can authenticate and log in to JetBrains Hub and which authentication methods they can use (Push, QR code, and OTP).

Add a SAML Resource in AuthPoint

From the AuthPoint management UI:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Resources.
  2. From the Choose a Resource Type drop-down list, select SAML. Click Add Resource.

  1. Type a name for this resource.
  2. From the Application Type drop-down list, select JetBrains.
  3. In the Service Provider Entity ID text box, paste the SP entity ID value from JetBrains Hub.
  4. In the Assertion Consumer Service text box, paste the ACS URL value from JetBrains Hub.
  5. From the AuthPoint Certificate drop-down list, select the certificate to associate with your resource. This must be the same certificate that you downloaded the metadata for in the previous section.
  6. Click Save.

Add a Group in AuthPoint

You must have at least one user group in AuthPoint to configure MFA. If you already have a group, you do not have to add another group.

To add a group to AuthPoint:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Groups.
  2. Click Add Group.
    The New Group page appears.

Screenshot that shows the Groups page.

  1. In the Name text box, type a descriptive name for the group.
  2. (Optional) In the Description text box, type a description of the group.

  1. Click Save.
    Your group is listed on the Groups page.

Add an Authentication Policy to AuthPoint

Authentication policies specify which resources users can authenticate to and which authentication methods they can use (Push, QR code, and OTP).

You must have at least one authentication policy in AuthPoint that includes the JetBrains Hub resource. If you already have authentication policies, you do not have to create a new authentication policy. You can add this resource to your existing authentication policies.

Users that do not have an authentication policy for a specific resource cannot authenticate to log in to that resource.

To configure an authentication policy:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Authentication Policies.
  2. Click Add Policy.

Screenshot of the Add Policy button on the Authentication Policies page.

  1. Type a name for this policy.
  2. From the Select the authentication options drop-down list, select Authentication options and select which authentication options users can choose from when they authenticate.

    For SAML resources, if you select more than one authentication option, users must select one of the available options when they authenticate. For example, if you select OTP and Push, users can choose to type their OTP or approve a push to authenticate. You cannot require that they do both.

  1. Select which groups this policy applies to. You can select more than one group. To configure this policy to apply to all groups, select All Groups.
  2. Select the resource that you created in the previous section. If you want this policy to apply to additional resources, select each resource this policy applies to. To configure this policy to apply to all resources, select All Resources.

  1. (Optional) If you have configured policy objects such as a Network Location, select which policy objects apply to this policy. When you add a policy object to a policy, the policy only applies to user authentications that match the conditions of the policy objects. For example, if you add a Network Location to a policy, the policy only applies to user authentications that come from that Network Location. Users who only have a policy that includes a Network Location do not get access to the resource when they authenticate outside of that Network Location (because they do not have a policy that applies, not because authentication is denied).

    If you configure policy objects, we recommend that you create a second policy for the same groups and resources without the policy objects. The policy with the policy objects should have a higher priority.

Screenshot of the Policy Objects drop-down list.

  1. Click Save.
    Your policy is created and added to the end of the policy list.

    When you create a new policy, we recommend that you review the order of your policies. AuthPoint always adds new policies to the end of the policy list.

Screenshot of the Save button on the Add Policy page.

Before you assign users to a group, you must add the users to AuthPoint. You can manually add user accounts or import user accounts from an external user database. For more information on how to add user accounts, see Add User Accounts.

Test the Integration

To test AuthPoint MFA with JetBrains Hub, you can authenticate with a mobile token on your mobile device. For SAML resources, you can choose any method (push, QR code, or one-time password).

In this example, we show the push authentication method (users receive a push notification in the mobile app that they must approve to authenticate).

  1. In a web browser, go to the JetBrains Hub URL.
  2. At the bottom of the login page, select the icon for your IdP (AuthPoint).
    You are redirected to the AuthPoint authenticaiton page.

  1. Type your email address or AuthPoint user name. Click Next.
  2. If required, in the Password text box, type your password.
  3. For the authentication method, select Push.
  4. Click Send.
  5. Approve the authentication request that is sent to your mobile device.
    You are logged in to JetBrains Hub.
