Product Update: MacOS® Keychain Support, More

By Greg Keller Posted February 14, 2017

Production Update Engineering

Jumpcloud has released a series of updates in support of our Mac OS X and macOS system agent. A breakdown of these updates follows:

  • macOS Sierra keychain support – JumpCloud’s system agent will now support the propagation of a password update to Keychain. Documentation on the Keychain updating process when passwords are updated can be found here.
  • macOS system logging support – JumpCloud’s system agent now supports the recording of system login events for macOS Sierra into the Events database.

In addition to these Mac system updates, the UI engineering and design teams continue to roll in new user interface treatments as the user experience at large evolves.

Commands Panel Updates

The Commands area has been moved into the ‘aside panel’ (e.g. edit panel) framework which most of the product has now undergone its transformation into. You will see new edit UI in ‘Details” and the introduction of the, now standard, “System Bindings” and “Tags” tabs to manage the association of the command with those object types.

New object status iconography

The icons depicting the status of icons have been updated to reflect more distinct visual status. This is especially helpful for those with varying ranges of color blindness.

New system filter iconography.

As a means to quickly visually decipher operating systems, the respective proprietary icons for each operating system type have been included in system list views:

In Beta Test: “Show All Available” option

We are beta-previewing a new filtering mechanism. When an administrator is reviewing a list view of items (e.g. a series of systems associated with a user), the default view will be to see only those items they are associated with first. Should you need to see all objects (and modify membership), the “Show All Available” selector can be used. This creates efficiencies for quick scanning of object associations. Parties interested in beta testing this feature should contact support@jumpcloud.com.
