About Self Service for Mobile Devices

Self Service allows users to browse and install iOS configuration profiles, apps, and books on managed mobile devices. Users can point and tap their way through Self Service using an interface similar to the App Store.

Jamf Pro allows you to manage every aspect of Self Service, including its installation, authentication, and the items available to users.

There are two kinds of Self Service for mobile devices:

  • Jamf Self Service for iOS—You can use Jamf Pro to group configuration profiles, apps, and books in categories, which makes those items easier to locate in Self Service. (For more information, see Categories.) You can also send notifications to mobile devices with Self Service installed.
    By default, Self Service is installed on all managed mobile devices with iOS 8 or later except Apple TV devices and personally owned devices.
    Jamf Self Service for iOS is available for free from the App Store.

  • Self Service web clip—In addition to configuration profiles, apps, and books, you can use the Self Service web clip to distribute updated MDM profiles to mobile devices for users to install.

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