Integrate with GoLinks

Give users access to GoLinks with a Bookmark Application connector. Automatically provision, update and deprovision users in GoLinks from JumpCloud using the Identity Management (SCIM) integration. Leverage this integration to centralize user lifecycle, user identity, and group management in JumpCloud for GoLinks. Save time and avoid mistakes, as well as potential security risks, related to manually creating users.

Read this article to learn how to setup the GoLinks integration.

Prerequisites

  • A JumpCloud Administrator account.
  • JumpCloud SSO Package or higher or SSO add-on feature.
  • A GoLinks user account with administrator permissions.
  • SAML is required to set up SCIM.
  • Contact the GoLinks Support team.
    • Request SAML 2.0 be enabled for your account.
    • Obtain the Application URL.
    • Request a SCIM API token.

Important Considerations

  • GoLinks SCIM API is based on version 2.0 of the SCIM standard.
  • If you need to update your token, you must deactivate the IdM integration, update the token, and then reactivate the IdM integration.
  • Deleting a user will only deactivate the user from GoLinks.
  • The following provisioning features are supported by GoLinks:
    • Create users.
    • Update users.
    • Deactivate users.
  • Groups are not supported.

Attribute Considerations

  • A default set of attributes are managed for users. See the Attribute Mappings section for more details.

Importing Users

This functionality is helpful if users have already been created in the application but have not been created in JumpCloud.

  1. Log in to the JumpCloud Admin Portal.
  2. Go to USER AUTHENTICATION > SSO Applications.
  3. Search for the application and click to open its configuration panel. 
  4. Select the Identity Management tab.
  5. Click manual import.
  6. Select the users you want to create in JumpCloud from the application from the list of users that appear. Users in the list have two import statuses:
    • New – user has not been imported.
    • Imported – user has been imported and has an account in JumpCloud.

Tip: Try using the New Users-only filter when selecting users to import. This will move all of your new users to the top of the list, making them easier to identify and select.

  1. Click import.
    • If you are importing less than 100 users, your import results will display in real time and you can continue onboarding your users. 
    • If you have more than 100 users being imported, JumpCloud will send you an email when your import is complete.
  1. You can now connect and grant users access to all their JumpCloud resources. Learn more in the Authorize Users to an Application and Connecting Users to Resources articles.

Warning: Imported users must be members of a user group bound to an application for JumpCloud to manage their identity in, and access to, the application.
