Groups in JumpCloud act as a collection of objects (e.g. a collection of users or systems). Once formed, you can associate these collections of objects with other resources to form relationships between them. The primary function of these relationships is to enable admins to be more efficient when granting or removing access to or from objects.
View the video below for a brief introduction to groups, as well as a quick demonstration of groups in action.
Getting Started: Groups
The video above answers the following questions:
- What are Groups?
- Why did JumpCloud create Groups?
- How do I use Groups?
With the JumpCloud Groups function, you can support an association model between objects. With it, IT admins will have a much more simplified and smooth Directory-as-a-Service experience. Over time, Groups will grant greater scalability to our directory architecture and model.
