# Rundeck SSO Security (Enterprise Only)

# Okta

Rundeck Enterprise can be configured to work with the Okta security platfom.

To configure the Okta SSO plugin for your Rundeck installation you will need to add a new application to your Okta Applications, and then add some properties to your rundeck-config.properties file.

# Okta Application Configuration

Log into your Okta web portal and configure a new application.

  • Create a new web application.
    • Configure the application with "Authorization Code" Grant type allowed.
    • Add the following URL to Login Redirect URIs (you can add more than one): <rundeck base url>/user/oauth/okta. Example: http://localhost:4440/user/oauth/okta
    • Copy the Client ID and Client Secret provided by Okta so that you can use them for the rundeck configuration.
  • Create groups with the same name as the roles configured on Rundeck. Map users to those groups.
  • Under the API menu, open the Authorization Servers configuration and add a new claim with the following information:
    • Name: groups
    • Include in Token Type: ID Token with Userinfo/id_token_request
    • Value Types: Groups
    • Filter: Regex: .*

# Rundeck configuration

Once you've set up the application in Okta you can configure Rundeck to use that application.

Add the following properties to your rundeck-config.properties file:

#Enable the OAuth SSO feature

#The first two come from the Client Credentials section on your Application configuration page in Okta
rundeck.security.oauth.okta.clientId = (Okta Client ID)
rundeck.security.oauth.okta.clientSecret = (Okta Secret Key)

#This group of properties requires you to replace the <okta service url> with the url provided by Okta for making api authorization calls
#<okta service url> might look something like: https://dev-877856.oktapreview.com/oauth2/default
#In your Okta web portal check API/Authorization Servers/Settings/Issuer to get this value
rundeck.security.oauth.okta.accessTokenUri = <okta service url>/v1/token
rundeck.security.oauth.okta.userAuthorizationUri = <okta service url>/v1/authorize
rundeck.security.oauth.okta.userInfoUri = <okta service url>/v1/userinfo

#Copy These verbatim
rundeck.security.oauth.okta.clientAuthenticationScheme = form
rundeck.security.oauth.okta.scope = openid profile email

#These properties control the appearance and url of the button on the login page
rundeck.sso.loginButton.title=Login with Okta

After completing the configuration of your rundeck-config.properties file, restart Rundeck.

# SSO Login

If you have successfully configured Okta and Rundeck you will see a new button on the rundeck login page that says Login with Okta. By clicking this button you will be redirected to an Okta Login form that will be used to collect the user credentials. Once you have logged in with your Okta credentials you will be redirected back to the home menu page in Rundeck.

Congratulations, you now have a working Okta/Rundeck SSO setup.

# Okta Group Plugin

If you have Active Directory integrated into your Okta system, the setup for groups described above may not work. In this case you may configure the Okta user group plugin that is packaged with Rundeck, to pull the user's group information from Okta via the Okta API.

First, you will need to create an API key in Okta that you can use to make API requests.

Then you will need to add the following properties to your framework.properties file.

framework.plugin.UserGroupSource.OktaGroupSource.apiToken=<api key>

framework.plugin.UserGroupSource.OktaGroupSource.oktaHostName=<okta host name>

#APP_GROUP is the way Okta denotes AD groups, if you want to also include Okta groups
#you could do the following:

If the plugin is enabled, when the user logs in, it will attempt to use the Okta user id out of the SSO token to pull that user's groups from Okta.

# Ping

Rundeck can be configured to work with Ping Identity services.

# Ping Configuration

You will need to refer to the Ping documentation to set up an OpenId Connect(OIDC) application in your Ping Environment. The Ping products you have purchased will determine how the application is set up inside Ping.

# Ping OIDC Application Setup

When setting up the OIDC Application be sure to choose to generate a client secret, and choose the grant type: Authorization Code. The Redirect callback url will be: https://{your-rundeck-host}/user/oauth/ping (Ping requires this to be an https endpoint) Specify the openid, profile, and email scopes for the application.

Note: The following Attribute Mappings must be set up in Ping on your OIDC Application.

  • The sub property needs to map to the value that will be used to identify the user in Rundeck.
  • You will need to define a property mapping that will map the Ping user's groups to an attribute that is sent in the oauth token.

After you have set up the OIDC application in Ping you will need the following properties when you set up the Rundeck side of the SSO:

  • Client Id
  • Client Secret

# Rundeck Configuration

From the values you recorded above populate your rundeck-config.properties file.


#Enable the OAuth SSO feature

rundeck.security.oauth.ping.clientId = YOUR_CLIENT_ID_HERE
rundeck.security.oauth.ping.clientSecret = YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET_HERE
rundeck.security.oauth.ping.accessTokenUri = 	https://sso.connect.pingidentity.com/sso/as/token.oauth2
rundeck.security.oauth.ping.userAuthorizationUri = https://sso.connect.pingidentity.com/sso/as/authorization.oauth2
rundeck.security.oauth.ping.userInfoUri = 	https://sso.connect.pingidentity.com/sso/idp/userinfo.openid
rundeck.security.oauth.ping.clientAuthenticationScheme = header
rundeck.security.oauth.ping.scope = openid profile email
#The name of the attribute that hold's the users groups
rundeck.security.oauth.ping.authorityProperty = YOUR_MAPPED_GROUPS_ATTRIBUTE

#These properties control the appearance and url of the SSO login button on the login page
rundeck.sso.loginButton.title=Login with Ping

After completing the configuration, restart Rundeck and attempt to login with Ping.

# Redirect URL Override

If you have Rundeck set up behind an SSL terminating proxy, you may need to specify the redirect url rather that use the automatically generated one. Rundeck tells the OAuth2 system where to redirect after authentication by sending a redirect url to the OAuth2 provider with the first authentication redirect. Most of the time Rundeck will send the correct url, but in some cases you will need to specify the redirect url manually.

This can be done by setting the following property in your Rundeck configuration file.
