PowerShell has been enabling admins to interact with their directory in unique ways for years now. With it, many of the monotonous tasks of everyday IT can be automated and handled programmatically. It has become an essential tool in many IT admins lives, and it is now coming to JumpCloud.
We recently developed the JumpCloud PowerShell Module, and it is doing just as much for Directory-as-a-Service® as it did for Active Directory. If you want to level up your programmatic interaction with your DaaS instance, then the new JumpCloud PowerShell Module is the tool for you.
Advanced User Imports From CSV Files
One great example of how this PowerShell module can help you do more is with advanced user imports. JumpCloud has a great UI that makes user creation simple and straightforward, but what if you need to create hundreds of users in a short period of time? That’s where the module is able to shine.
The creator of the module, Scott Reed, created a tutorial video on user importing and advanced user importing that demonstrate exactly how the module can help. In this video, shown above, Scott demonstrates how you can take a large group of Active Directory Profiles and automate the entire import process into JumpCloud. If you prefer to read, you can also find in depth documentation on our GitHub page.
