Tags to Groups Migration: LDAP Groups

Tags to Groups Migration LDAP Groups

Recently, JumpCloud introduced our new Groups functionality as part of the Directory-as-a-Service® platform. This feature allows admins to create a collection of JumpCloud objects, like users or systems, and associate them with other objects. This process creates a relationship between the two items, and enables them to be granted access to another object or group of objects. This powerful new tool is replacing our old Tags system, and as a result any organizations not already on Groups will soon be migrated to the new platform. In order to help admins with this transition, we have created a series of videos that show what you can expect to happen when making that migration. In this episode, we review the migration of LDAP Groups. You can find the video “Tags to Groups Migration | LDAP Groups” below:

Learn More about LDAP Groups

LDAP Groups are a great tool that can be used by admins to connect users to IT resources that can be authenticated through LDAP. The process to set up your JumpCloud LDAP server is simple. First, you create a Group of Users and add users to them. Then, go to the Group of Users and select the Directories tab. On the Directories tab you simply click the JumpCloud LDAP checkbox to enable it, and then hit “save group.” Once complete, you can configure your applications and other resources to authenticate/authorize against the LDAP-as-a-Service feature, and end users can gain access.

This feature, combined with JumpCloud’s other protocols like SAML, RADIUS, System Agents, and more, allow admins to control user access to the IT resources they have from one location. Users can be quickly added to the resources they need with group associations, and just as easily removed should they leave.
