Event Logs

The Jamf Software Server (JSS) records events in the form of logs. You can view the status of these events using the Event Logs.

The Event Logs pane displays the following information:

  • Date/time the status was last updated for an event

  • Name of the device that is in the scope of an event

  • Object type (such as “macOS Configuration Profile” or “Casper Imaging”)

  • Object name associated with an event (such as the name of a configuration profile or “Standard Imaging”)

  • Action of the event (such as “Install” or “Imaging”)

  • Status of the event (such as “Started” or “Completed”)

Event logs can be viewed for macOS configuration profiles and iOS configuration profiles. As of the Casper Suite v9.7, event logs can also be viewed for imaging.

Depending on your system configuration:

  • Some historical event logs data may not be available for macOS configuration profiles and iOS configuration profiles installed using v9.63 or earlier.

  • Some historical event logs data may not be available for imaging performed using Casper Imaging v9.66 or earlier.

Requirements

To access Event Logs, a JSS user account or group must have the Administrator or Auditor privilege set. (For more information, see JSS User Accounts and Groups.)
