Jamf Push Proxy

The Jamf Push Proxy enables communication between the Jamf Pro server and devices with Jamf Self Service installed, and between the Jamf Pro server and personally owned Android devices. Push notifications trigger the following types of communication between the Jamf Pro server and devices in your environment:

  • Sending Notification Center notifications to computers and mobile devices with Self Service installed

  • Requesting management check-ins from personally owned Android devices

Jamf Pro requires a valid proxy server token to authenticate to the Jamf Push Proxy. An assistant in Jamf Pro guides you through the process to request a new proxy server token from the Jamf Authorization Server and upload it to Jamf Pro.

The following diagram illustrates the communication between the Jamf Push Proxy and the Apple Push Notification service (APNs), Google Cloud Messaging (GCM), Jamf Pro, and devices in your environment:
