Suspend User

Admins, you can leverage JumpCloud’s Suspend User feature to off-board or temporarily revoke a user’s resource access while retaining their records.

  • Instant lock down: When a user is suspended, their system access across whichever OS they use (Mac, Windows, or Linux) is immediately locked down so you have a failsafe in the event of a serious issue.
  • Feature behavior: Suspended users can’t reset their password or take any other action to restore access—only Admins can control that. When you unsuspend a user, their resource access is restored.
  • Bulk suspension: Select one or many users to place into a suspended state when you need to govern access to company resources. Suspended users won’t be able to access any JumpCloud-provisioned resources you manage. (Read more...)
