Self Service Web Clip

The Self Service web clip allows you to distribute iOS configuration profiles, apps, eBooks, and updated MDM profiles to mobile devices for users to install. Users tap the web clip to browse and install items using an interface similar to the App Store.

If you have upgraded from Jamf Pro 9.3x or earlier, the Self Service web clip remains installed on all managed mobile devices.

Note: By default, the Self Service app is installed on all managed mobile devices with iOS 7 or later except Apple TV devices and personally owned devices. (For more information, see Self Service Mobile.)

Requirements

To require or allow users to log in to Self Service, you need an LDAP server set up in Jamf Pro. (For more information, see Integrating with LDAP Directory Services.)
