Downloading JumpCloud Agent from Command-Line

This article provides JumpCloud Administrator an alternative means of downloading the JumpCloud Agent for the Windows and Mac platforms via command-line.  When used in conjunction with the Windows and Mac command line installation procedures, administrators can more easily create scripted solutions for deploying to systems.

curl -o /tmp/jumpcloud-agent.pkg "REMOTE_URL"
Windows (PowerShell):
(New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile("REMOTE_URL", "$env:TEMP/JumpCloudInstaller.exe")


Determining the REMOTE_URL

For Mac and Windows, the agent installer file will first need to be downloaded to the system from the REMOTE_URL.  To find that location:

  • Login to as an administrator
  • Select the 'Systems' object on the left
  • Select '+' to add a system
  • Windows:  Select the 'Windows Install' tab, right-click the 'Download Agent' button and select to copy the link to the clipboard
  • Mac: Select the 'Mac Install' tab, right-click (Ctrl+Left-click for one-button mice) the 'Download Agent' button and select to copy the link to the clipboard
  • Paste the value copied to the clipboard into the above commands replacing REMOTE_URL
