Integrate with Ironclad

Automatically provision, update and deprovision users and groups in Ironclad from JumpCloud using the Identity Management (SCIM) integration. Leverage this integration to centralize user lifecycle, user identity, and group management in JumpCloud for Ironclad. 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 Ironclad integration.


  • A JumpCloud administrator account.
  • A Ironclad user account with Org Security Admin priviledge.

Important Considerations

  • Ironclad SCIM API is based on version 2.0 of the SCIM standard.
  • SSO is recommended, but not required, for SCIM. See SSO using Pre-built Application Connectors to set up SSO.
  • If you need to update your token, you must deactivate the IdM integration, update the token, and then reactivate the IdM integration.
  • Ironclad does not support changing a user’s email or userName fields via SCIM.
  • The following provisioning features are supported by Ironclad:
    • Create, update and deactivate users.
    • Create, update and delete groups.
  • Groups are supported. 

Attribute Considerations

  • A default set of attributes are managed for users. See the Attribute Mappings section for more details.
  • The following attributes are not supported by JumpCloud:
    • role
    • entitlements
    • manager
    • division
    • timezone

Group Management Important Considerations

Enabling Group Management

You must select the Enable management of User Groups and Group Membership in this application option to manage groups and group membership in the application from JumpCloud.

Group Provisioning and Syncing 

  • Empty groups are not created.
  • JumpCloud takes over management of existing groups in the application when the user group name in JumpCloud matches the name of the group in the application.
  • All user groups associated with the application in JumpCloud are synced. Syncing occurs whenever there is a membership or group change event.
  • Group renaming is supported.
  • If a user group is disassociated from the application in JumpCloud, syncing immediately stops and the group is left as-is in the application. All members of that user group are deactivated in the application unless they are associated with another active application group that is managed from JumpCloud.

Group Deletion

  • Managed groups deleted in JumpCloud are deleted in the application.
  • All members of the deleted group are deactivated in the application, unless they are associated with another active application group that is managed from JumpCloud.

Disabling Group Management

  • You can disable group and group membership management by unchecking the Enable management of User Groups and Group Membership in this application option.
  • The managed groups and group membership are left as-is in the application.
  • JumpCloud stops sending group membership information for the user, but the user’s identity will continue to be managed from JumpCloud.

Importing Users

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

  • New – The user has not been imported.

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.
