Convert Windows System Active Directory Domain Accounts to Local User Accounts

You can migrate your organization from Active Directory or Entra ID and then use JumpCloud to manage your accounts, all while keeping user profiles intact. A Windows device bound to an Active Directory domain can have two types of user accounts: domain user accounts and local user accounts.

When a Windows device is removed from an Active Directory domain, only local accounts are available for log in. Domain-bound accounts can be converted to local accounts before leaving an Active Directory domain. Migrated accounts can be taken over and managed with JumpCloud. 

To learn how to migrate domain Windows accounts, unbinding from AD and domains, and installing the JumpCloud agent, see our Active Directory Migration Utility.

Additionally, see the articles in the Learn More section to the right for information on migrating users from AD.
