Policies: Point-and-Click System Management

Cloud Directory GPOs for Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® Management

JumpCloud Policies are a cloud-based, multi-platform analogue to Active Directory Group Policy Objects (GPOs) that give admins a point-and-click way to configure OS behavior on JumpCloud-managed devices. Policies can be applied to entire fleets based on the defined system groups, or to individual systems as necessary — regardless of their location.

  • Apply policies to systems and system groups with no coding required
  • Set up cross-OS policies for system security and compliance
  • Queue policies to run the next time a system is online

How Policies Work in Three Easy Steps

  • Add a Policy: Set up policies to control and secure systems and ensure they meet your organization’s compliance standards
  • Configure and Push: Set up policy variables and arguments by OS-specific policy and then bind it to a system or system group to apply the policy to the specified systems of that OS.
  • See Results: Deployed policies return status in minutes to indicate a healthy state or flag something that needs attention.

The Power of Policies

  • Enforce policies for FDE, software installation, lock screen time, remote storage, and more to govern your fleet’s standards.
  • Assign a policy to a system group to bulk-apply the policy to every device of a specific OS.
  • If users with local admin rights modify system configuration, JumpCloud automatically modifies their configuration to comply with the admin-set JumpCloud policy.
  • You can create a policy with either the web-based JumpCloud Admin Portal or the JumpCloud PowerShell Module, which can be run directly from the admin’s machine (Windows, Mac, or Linux).
  • Don’t see a policy you’re looking for? Submit an idea from the Admin Portal or check out JumpCloud Commands to see even more ways to remotely manage systems.
