Integrate Kisi with JumpCloud


This is a Kisi-built integration, maintained and supported by Kisi.

As a Kisi organization owner you can set up JumpCloud single sign-on (SSO) for your Kisi users. To further control your SSO integration, you can sync it with your JumpCloud directory members and groups with SCIM.

Kisi organizations with single sign-on (SSO) can, if needed, also enable authentication with password for users. If enabled, the user will be able to log in with email and password. If the user is in the organizations' IdP directory, an SSO login will also be available.


  • a Kisi organization owner account
  • a valid and activated SSO license

Before setting up the integration, ensure you are logged in as the Kisi organization owner and have a valid, activated SSO license. If these prerequisites are met and the SSO & SCIM option is still not visible on the dashboard, please reach out to Kisi Support for assistance.

Enable SCIM on JumpCloud

Before you start, make sure you have SSO set up for your organization. Then just follow the next steps to generate a SCIM token and enable SCIM for your organization.

Generate your SCIM Token in Kisi

  1. Go back to Kisi

Import users from JumpCloud Directory

Customers who don't yet have SSO set up can still import users from their JumpCloud Directory by manually setting up the integration. We recommend, however, setting up SSO to allow your Kisi users to log in with their single, existing credentials.


Kisi organizations are limited to one SSO and one SCIM integration. Depending on your needs, you can combine SSO and SCIM integrations with one or more user directory integrations within the same Kisi organization.

To be able to set this integration up, you need to have a JumpCloud account.

Get the JumpCloud Directory API key

  1. Sign in to your JumpCloud Administrator Console
  2. At the top, click on your profile and select API Settings
  3. Copy the API key

If you are a Jumpcloud Multi-Tenant Portal user, you also need the Organization ID. To get this, navigate to Settings > Organization ID.

Set up the integration in Kisi

  1. Sign in to Kisi as the organization owner
  2. Under Organization Setup, select Integrations and click Add Integration
  3. Enter a name, open the Type dropdown and select JumpCloud Directory User Import
  4. Enter the API Key you obtained before
  5. For Jumpcloud Multi-Tenant Portal users, enter the Organization ID obtained earlier. Otherwise leave the field blank
  6. After validating the API Key, Kisi will show you a list of Jumpcloud groups to select from
  7. Select the Kisi group you want to import to
  8. Enable the integration
  9. Click Add
