Bugsnag cloud application

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

With Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), your users can sign in to enterprise cloud applications with their Google Cloud credentials.

Set up SSO via SAML for Bugsnag

Before configuring SSO, Bugsnag provides a unique ID for your organization. For example, “yorg-1” in https://app.bugsnag.com/yorg-1/sandbox, which is provided to you when you register an account at Bugsnag. If you forget the unique ID, go to this ID request page, and provide your registered email address to get it by email.

Step 1: Set up Google as a SAML identity provider (IdP)
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using an account with super administrator privileges (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenWeb and mobile apps.
  3. Click Add appand thenSearch for apps.
  4. Enter Bugsnag in the search field.
  5. In the search results, hover over the Bugsnag SAML app and click Select.
  6. On the Google Identity Provider details page, download the IDP metadata.
  7. Click Continue.
  8. On the Service provider details page, edit the ACS URL, replacing {uniqueid-provided-by-sp} with the unique ID specific to your organization provided by Bugsnag. 
  9. Click Continue.
  10. On the Attribute mapping page, click the Select field menu and map the following Google directory attributes to their corresponding Bugsnag attributes:
     
    Google directory attribute Bugsnag attribute
    Basic Information > First Name User.FirstName
    Basic Information > Last Name User.LastName
  11. Click Finish.
Step 2: Host the Google IDP metadata to a public file server

On a publicly accessible file server, host the Google IDP metadata file downloaded in step 1. The file must be served directly, not via any redirects. The file also needs to be permanently available at a specific URL. It is requested by Bugsnag each time a user signs in.

Step 3: Set up Bugsnag as a SAML 2.0 service provider (SP)
  1. Open a new incognito browser window.
  2. Sign in to the Bugsnag homepage with your organization’s Bugsnag administrator account.
  3. On the Bugsnag home page, click your user-profile icon and select Settings.
  4. Click Organization.
  5. Click Single Sign-on under Authentication.
  6. In the Login URL from your SSO provider field, enter the URL of the Google IDP metadata, hosted on the file server (step 2).
  7. Leave the option to auto-provision new users enabled.
  8. Click Enable SSO
  9. (Optional) If user auto-provisioning is not enabled in Bugsnag, create users:
    • Click Settings to return to the Settings page.
    • Click Collaborators.
    • Click Add Collaborators.
    • Enter your Google user email address and click Send Invites.
    • Open the Google user mailbox and accept the Bugsnag invitation.
Step 4: Enable the Bugsnag app
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using an account with super administrator privileges (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenWeb and mobile apps.
  3. Select Bugsnag.
  4. Click User access.
  5. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  6. (Optional) To turn a service on or off for an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. Click Override to keep your setting if the service for the parent organizational unit is changed.
    4. If Overridden is already set for the organizational unit, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

    Learn more about organizational structure.

  7. (Optional) Turn on the service for a group of users.
    Use access groups to turn on a service for specific users within or across your organizational units. Learn more

  8. Ensure that your Bugsnag user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 5: Verify that the SSO is working

Bugsnag supports both Identity Provider (IdP) initiated and Service Provider (SP) initiated SSO. Follow these steps to verify SSO in either mode:

IdP-initiated

    Sign in using an account with super administrator privileges (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenWeb and mobile apps.
  3. Select Bugsnag.
  4. At the top left, click Test SAML login

    Bugsnag should open in a separate tab. If it doesn’t, use the information in the resulting SAML error messages to update your IdP and SP settings as needed, then retest SAML login.

SP-initiated

  1. Close all browser windows.
  2. Open the Bugsnag homepage and click Sign in.
  3. Click Sign in with your identity provider.
  4. Enter your organization’s Bugsnag provided unique ID, and click Sign in using your identity provider. You should be redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  5. Enter your username and password.

After your credentials are authenticated, you are redirected back to Bugsnag.
