JumpCloud Directory Insights Source


JumpCloud's open directory platform unifies your technology stack across identity, access, and device management in a cost-effective manner that doesn't sacrifice security or functionality. Directory Insights gives you a clear path to view, analyze, and save user and resource activity data, in a standard format that you can query in real time.

JumpCloud Directory Insights Source is used to collect Directory Insights Events from the JumpCloud platform using the REST API and send it to Sumo Logic.


This source is available in all deployments, including the Fed deployment.

Vendor configuration

The JumpCloud Directory Insights source requires you to provide the API Key and Organization ID to access the source data.

Source configuration

When you create a JumpCloud Directory Insights source, you add it to a Hosted Collector. Before creating the source, identify the Hosted Collector you want to use or create a new Hosted Collector. For instructions, see Configure a Hosted Collector.

To configure a JumpCloud Directory Insights source:

  1. In the main Sumo Logic menu, select Manage Data > Collection > Collection.
  2. On the Collection page, click Add Source next to a Hosted Collector.
  3. Search for and select JumpCloud Directory Insights.
  4. Enter a Name for the source. The description is optional.
  5. (Optional) For Source Category, enter any string to tag the output collected from the Source. Category metadata is stored in a searchable field called _sourceCategory.
  6. (Optional) Fields. Click the +Add button to define the fields you want to associate. Each field needs a name (key) and value.
    • green check circle.png A green circle with a check mark is shown when the field exists in the Fields table schema.
    • orange exclamation point.png An orange triangle with an exclamation point is shown when the field doesn't exist in the Fields table schema. In this case, an option to automatically add the nonexistent fields to the Fields table schema is provided. If a field is sent to Sumo Logic that does not exist in the Fields schema it is ignored, known as dropped.
  7. In API Key, enter the API Key you generated from the JumpCloud Directory Insights platform.
  8. In Organization ID, enter the Organization ID you generated from the JumpCloud Directory Insights platform.
  9. In Service, select the type of logs to collect. This allows you to limit the response to just the data you want.
  10. When you are finished configuring the Source, click Save.
