[Notification] We're upgrading the JumpCloud Support Center the week of September 30th.

Support Center

Configuration Alerts and Notifications

The JumpCloud Administrator Console will display Configuration Alerts in the Notifications area in the top right, the number indicating the number of active alerts:


The following conditions will create a Configuration Alert:

File changes
A change to either of these files external to the agent, such as a manual change with useradd (Linux only)
Notification: Your /etc/passwd file has changed outside of JumpCloud on system_name
Action: This alert can be dismissed and may justify further investigation of the change on the system itself.

UID conflict when binding a user
Notification: Existing User. "Conflicting UID with user username."
Detail: The user will not be provisioned to the system until the conflict is resolved.
Action: Correct the UID in either JumpCloud or the system.

GID conflict binding a user
Notification: Existing User.  "Group doesn't exist. Please add group for GID n"
Detail: A User already exists on the system with a GID different than the one specified within JumpCloud.  Action: The GID discrepancy should be resolved either in the console or the system in order to take over the account. 

GID conflict creating Linux group
Notification: "Group groupname wasn't created.  There is already a group on the system with a GID of n
Detail: A Group of Users has been created where the GID is the same as a GID that already exists on the system and the group name in the Group of Users does not match the group name on the system.  
Action: To manage an existing group on a system, the group name and GID in the Group of Users must match the system.  To create a new group, both the group name and the GUID must be unique.
