Migrate Users and Devices from Active Directory

See the following articles for information on migrating users from Active Directory (AD): 

Migrating Windows Devices from AD to JumpCloud

You can migrate your Active Directory (AD) OnPrem Windows devices to your JumpCloud org while keeping them protected and secure. From a high level, to do so:

  1. Create the policies you need for your devices in JumpCloud.
  2. Bind the JumpCloud policies to all of the AD On Prem Windows devices in scope.


You may receive error messages regarding the following four policies:

  • Rename Local Administrator Account
  • Enable/Disable Local Administrator Account
  • Rename Local Guest Account
  • Enable/Disable Local Guest Account

This is expected behavior, because the device is still bound to Active Directory at this time.

  1. Unbind the devices from Active Directory.
