Ongoing Incident Prompts JumpCloud to Reset API Keys

In response to an ongoing incident, JumpCloud has reset the admin Application Programming Interface (API) keys for affected customers.

In a notice sent to impacted customers and verified by Infosecurity, JumpCloud emphasized the precautionary nature of the action and its purpose of safeguarding sensitive information.

“Out of an abundance of caution relating to an ongoing incident, JumpCloud has invalidated your existing API keys. We have done this to protect your organization and operations,” the company wrote.

To assist customers in the process, JumpCloud provided a guide to reset the API keys and offered a guided simulation for further assistance. The company urged affected customers to follow the provided instructions promptly.

It will also affect the Directory Insights Serverless App, ADMU, 3rd party MDM Zero-touch packages, Command Triggers, Okta SCIM integration, Azure AD SCIM integration and integrations built to create/update users and/or devices using 3rd party tools like Workato, Aquera,, as well as automation and custom applications, among others.
