Integrate with Sparkpost

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


  • A JumpCloud administrator account.
  • A SparkPost user account with administrator permissions.
  • A premier or enterprise Sparkpost plan.
  • SAML SSO is configured and enabled. 

Important Considerations

  • Sparkpost SCIM API is based on version 2.0 of the SCIM standard.
  • If you have to change or renew your token, you must deactivate the IdM Integration, renew the token and then reactivate the integration.

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 – The 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.
