This API key reset will, disrupt a significant number of functionalities - essentially all integrations - like AD import, HRIS integrations, JumpCloud PowerShell modules, JumpCloud Slack apps, Directory Insights Serverless apps, ADMU, third-party zero-touch MDM packages, Command Triggers, Okta SCIM integration, Azure AD SCIM integration, Workato, Aquera, Tray, and more.

Despite the potential disruptions, JumpCloud believes that the API key reset is necessary for the overall security of its clients. The company offers assistance and support to clients who need help with resetting or re-establishing their API keys, providing a detailed guide and an interactive simulation.

Update - JumpCloud revealed that the attack is probably conducted by hackers believed to be working for a nation-state. The breach began on June 22 through a spear-phishing campaign, allowing the threat actor to gain unauthorized access to a specific part of JumpCloud's internal network. The breach was highly targeted and limited to specific customers whose names were not disclosed.

JumpCloud's cloud-based Active Directory services are widely used by over 180,000 organizations globally, with numerous software vendors and cloud service providers integrating their systems with JumpCloud's identity, access, and device management services.
