Apple Configurator Enrollment Settings

The Apple Configurator Enrollment settings allow you to enroll mobile devices with the Jamf Software Server (JSS) using Apple Configurator 2 and an enrollment URL. This involves enabling Apple Configurator enrollment in the JSS, and then connecting devices to a computer via USB to enroll them using Apple Configurator 2 and an enrollment URL.

You can enable one or both of the following types of Apple Configurator enrollment URL:

  • Static URL – Using a static URL allows you to manually provide the URL to the person that operates the Apple Configurator workstation in the way that best fits your environment. The static URL cannot expire and does not allow you to enroll devices into sites as a part of the enrollment process.
    The static enrollment URL for the JSS is the URL for the JSS followed by “/configuratorenroll”. For example:
    https://jss.mycompany.com:8443/configuratorenroll

  • Dynamic URL – Using a dynamic URL allows you to view a randomly generated enrollment URL in the JSS or send that URL to the person that operates the Apple Configurator workstation via an enrollment invitation, allowing for a more secure enrollment experience. When you view or send a dynamic URL via an enrollment invitation, you can set the expiration date for the URL and choose a site to add devices to during enrollment.
