Categories

Categories are organizational components that allow you to group policies, packages, scripts, and printers in Jamf Admin and Jamf Pro. You can also use categories to group policies, configuration profiles, apps, and eBooks in Jamf Self Service. This makes these items easier to locate.

You can add categories to Jamf Admin or Jamf Pro. When you add, edit, or delete a category in Jamf Admin, the changes are reflected in Jamf Pro and vice versa.

After you add a category to Jamf Admin or Jamf Pro, you can add items to the category when configuring them in Jamf Admin or Jamf Pro.
