Our Directory-as-a-Service® platform touches many different types of resources including systems, applications, file servers, and networks. JumpCloud will make reasonable efforts to correct any and all issues related to our product, but we cannot guarantee that our platform is compatible with each and every resource in customer environments. We do our best to document everything we come across and learn about, and we urge you to check our Knowledge Base for officially supported resource integrations and protocol support.
While our intent is to be helpful, we cannot be responsible for the quality or support assistance of third-party resources or resources which cannot connect to any of JumpCloud’s documented and approved protocols.
If your systems are End of Life, unpatched, or otherwise out of date, our policy is to request an update to your systems before we provide support. For a current list of the versions of hardware and software we support, please check our Knowledge Base.
Issue Prioritization and Escalation
JumpCloud support is direct and severity based. As such, issues that impact the customers’ ability to integrate JumpCloud with resources actively used by their business to manage the daily business needs of their users will take priority. Target response times, along with time to resolution, will vary based on severity, workload across the customer base, the information provided to JumpCloud in narrowing down the issue, and the complexity of the issue.
JumpCloud Support and the Security of your Account
JumpCloud maintains stringent security practices and procedures to ensure the highest level of protection for your JumpCloud account. There are not only strict policies in place to enforce the required level of account verification for specific actions (for example, a request to become an administrator from a user), but there are also standards that we adhere to such as SOC.
In pursuit of thwarting identity theft, for your protection, there are specific activities that JumpCloud support personnel will not perform without proper authentication. These include:
- Deleting your account without proper authorization – We require detailed authorization checks to verify your identity when you wish to delete your account. A customer support engineer will enumerate those upon request to delete an account.
- Password changes – No JumpCloud employee has the ability to see or access your account’s password – that includes our success, engineering, and operations teams. JumpCloud maintains highly secure hashing and salting of passwords. No JumpCloud employee has the ability to change your password for you or to change it to something that you tell us to change it to. Additionally, no JumpCloud employee will ever ask you for your password.
- Provide access to an IT resource – JumpCloud will not honor any requests for an individual to be added to a resource that your organization controls. While you may be an administrator, JumpCloud will not take this action for you at any time. If for some reason you are unable to do that on your own, we will work with you to find the root cause of the issue and will treat the issue as a defect.
- Providing account-related information without proper authorization – We require detailed authorization checks to verify your identity before we grant information related to your account. A customer support engineer will enumerate those upon request.
For additional information, please see our JumpCloud Employee/Customer Communication and Extraordinary Access Policy.
