In-House App Validation Settings

The Jamf Software Server (JSS) allows you to configure settings to automatically validate all managed in-house apps on mobile devices. You can use the App Validation settings in the JSS to do the following:

  • Enable Automatic App Validation–You can enable automatic app validation for all managed in-house apps on mobile devices. This allows you to customize how frequently apps are validated.

  • Force App Validation–You can force the JSS to immediately send app validation commands to all managed in-house apps on mobile devices.

The validation status for a managed in-house app on a mobile device is collected each time inventory information for the device is reported to the JSS, and is displayed in the inventory information for that device. If an app cannot be validated, the validation status is reported as "not validated", and the app will not open until a successful validation occurs. For information about the situations in which an app may be reported as "not validated", see the following Knowledge Base article:
Cannot Validate a Managed In-House App

Enabling Automatic App Validation

Enabling automatic app validation allows you to customize how frequently you want the JSS to attempt to validate all managed in-house apps on mobile devices. You can choose to validate apps every week, every two weeks, every four weeks, or every eight weeks. The default validation frequency is "every week”.

  1. Log in to the JSS with a web browser.

Managed in-house apps are validated on mobile devices according to the selected validation frequency based on the time of day and day of the week that the setting was saved.
