Set up Jumpcloud for automated tests with TrustCloud!


Once you set up your compliance program, TrustCloud TrustOps works to ensure that your systems remain compliant with your adopted controls. To do so, TrustCloud runs automated tests against systems in your product and business stack and verifies that they are properly configured. TrustCloud also retrieves lists of resources against systems in your product and business stack to use for compliance evidence.

TrustCloud will retrieve this information via the Jumpcloud REST API and will need an API key created by an Administrator user in order to authenticate and fetch this data.
