This document describes how to set up multi-factor authentication (MFA) for your LucidChart with AuthPoint, and configure your LucidChart to integrate with AuthPoint SAML.
Your LucidChart must already be configured and deployed before you set up MFA with AuthPoint. Your LucidChart can be configured to support MFA in several modes. For this integration, we set up SAML with AuthPoint.
This integration was tested with cloud of LucidChart.
LucidChart 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 a LucidChart.
Before You Begin
Before you begin these procedures, make sure that:
- End-users can log in to LucidChart
- A token is assigned to a user in AuthPoint
- You have an AuthPoint identity provider (IdP) certificateAn AuthPoint IdP certificate is required for SAML authentication. (see Certificate Management)
To start, you must download the metadata file from the Resources page in the AuthPoint management UI. Once you have the metadata file, you can configure LucidChart.
- Log in to WatchGuard Cloud.
- From the navigation menu, select Configure > AuthPoint. If you have a Service Provider account, you must first pivot to your Subscriber view.
- Select Resources.
- Click Certificate.
- 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 your resource, in this case LucidChart, with information necessary to identify AuthPoint as a trusted identity provider.
- Log in to LucidChart.
- Click Team.
- Click App Integration.
- Click SAML.
- Select the Enable SAML Integration check box.
- In the Domain text box, type the domain name suffix of your email address. For example, if your email is [email protected] you would type example.com.
- In the Identity Provider section, click Add Identity Provider.
- In the Identity Provider Name text box, type a name for the identity provider (AuthPoint).
- In the metadata text box, paste the metadata from the AuthPoint metadata file.
- Click Add Provider.
- Click Download Metadata.
- Click Save changes.
Before AuthPoint can receive authentication requests from LucidChart, you must specify the LucidChart client in AuthPoint. You must also assign LucidChart to the user group that will authenticate through LucidChart.
Add a SAML Resource in AuthPoint
From the AuthPoint management UI:
- From the navigation menu, select Resources.
- From the Choose a Resource Type drop-down list, select SAML. Click Add Resource.
- Type a Name for the resource.
- From the Application Type drop-down list, select LucidChart.
- In the Service Provider Entity ID text box, type lucidchart.com.
- In the Assertion Consumer Service text box, type https://www.lucidchart.com/saml/sso/<your domain>.
- Click Save.
Add an Access Policy to AuthPoint
You must have at least one user group in AuthPoint for authentication with LucidChart, and you must assign an access policy for the LucidChart resource to that group. If you already have a group, you do not have to add another group.
In the AuthPoint management UI:
- From the navigation menu, select Groups.
- To add a new group, click Add Group. If you already have a group that you want to use, select the group to edit it.
- In the Name text box, type a descriptive name for the group.
- (Optional) In the Description text box, type a description of the group.
- In the Access Policy section, click Add Policy.
- In the Add Policy dialog box, from the Resource drop-down list, select the resource you want to add an access policy for.
- (Optional) To require that users type their password before they authenticate for this resource, select the Require Password Authentication toggle.
- Select the authentication options that users in this group can choose from when they authenticate.
For SAML resources, if you select more than one authentication option, users must choose 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.
- Click Add.
- (Optional) Add one or more safe locations to your group. For more information about safe locations and detailed instructions to add them, see About Safe Locations.
- Click Save.
Before you assign users to a group, you must add them to AuthPoint. You can manually add user accounts or import user accounts from your LDAP database. For more information on how to add user accounts, see Add User Accounts.
Test the Integration
To test the integration of AuthPoint and configuration of your LucidChart, you can authenticate with a mobile token on your mobile device. You can choose any method (one-time password, QR code, or push).
In this example, we show the push authentication method (users receive a push notification in the mobile app that they must approve to authenticate).
- In a web browser, go to the LucidChart Sign in URL (https://www.lucidchart/saml/sso/yourdomain.com).
- Type your email address or AuthPoint user name. Click Next.
- If required, in the Password text box, type your password.
- For the authentication method, select Push.
- Click Send.
- Approve the authentication request that is sent to your mobile device.
You are logged in to LucidChart.
