Happy New Year from JumpCloud! For many of us, January is the time when we reflect on our past year, and set goals for the upcoming one. 

At JumpCloud, we’re already finding more ways to Make (Remote) Work Happen® for our customers in 2022. Check out what we have going on.

API Docs Site Refresh

The API documentation available at docs.jumpcloud.com was revamped on January 5, 2022. The new page features: 

  • A Fresh Look | Enjoy a new, simplified layout for navigating the growing number of APIs provided to JumpCloud admins. 
  • A New Search Bar | Easily find key terms or chosen endpoints within each API document via search.
  • New Usability Examples | See examples of how to call each endpoint by various programming languages, including request samples in Bash, Python, and PowerShell. 
Refreshed homepage of the JumpCloud API documentation site.

Expanded Linux Agent Support

JumpCloud is continuing to build out our support across Linux-based systems to enable IT administrators the flexibility to manage all of their deployed devices, regardless of operating system.

The JumpCloud agent can now be deployed on a variety of new distributions, enabling you to secure, manage, and view these systems in the admin portal. These now include:

  • Amazon Linux and Amazon Linux 2
  • CentOS 7, 8
  • Debian 9, 10, 11
  • Fedora 34, 35 NEW!
  • Mint 19, 20 Cinnamon (64 bit)
  • RHEL 7, 8
  • Rock Linux 8.4
  • Ubuntu 18.04 (64 bit), 20.04, and 21.04 on x86_64 and ARM64 processors

JumpCloud SSO: Additions and Upgrades

Through JumpCloud SSO, admins can centralize their employees’ access to all applications through a single set of credentials leveraging SAML 2.0 and SCIM connectors. In addition to building custom applications, admins can select from JumpCloud’s growing list of out-of-the-box connectors to expedite and simplify this process.

Last month JumpCloud added and updated the following pre-configured SAML applications:

  • JustCall
  • Convecent
  • Bob
  • OneSpan
  • JupiterOne

If you have a connector you’d like to see on this list, you can submit your request here.
