Welcome to JumpCloud’s February Newsletter.
Simplify Onboarding and Group Management for AWS SSO
You can now centrally provision and manage AWS SSO groups from JumpCloud, further automating the user onboarding and offboarding process. When a new user is provisioned in JumpCloud, both the user’s identity and group assignments are added within AWS SSO, giving the user the right access on day one. Removing a user from a JumpCloud group instantly revokes the AWS access they received through that group membership.
Customize Your Users’ Experience
You have a growing toolkit to customize the way your end users interact with JumpCloud. You can now upload your organization’s logo to populate it on the User Portal login and console screens, and edit the text in high-priority emails that your users receive from JumpCloud. Along with a new-and-improved design for the User and Admin Portal login screens, this customization helps your employees recognize trusted communications and IT resources.
Tailor Access Control Policies
Do you worry about remote users working from their personal devices? With conditional access policies, you control which devices and networks have access to corporate resources. JumpCloud’s newly released conditional access features give you more fine-grained control over how these policies are applied and allow you to exclude select user groups like executives. Plus, you can create global policies that set a security baseline for users who do not have other conditional access policies applied to them.

Other Things You Should Know
- Customize User Columns: Select which columns display in your list of users when you visit the Users tab in your Admin Portal, and get immediate visibility into key user data points like department, sudo access, and account lock status. You can export this data as JSON or CSV.
- Improved Auditing in Directory Insights: Get a quick view of the resources your users have access to when you visit Directory Insights in the console. When you bind or remove users and groups from applications, devices, and other resources, you can view those association change events in your Directory Insights activity log, which will now include the names of those resources for easier auditing.
