Jamf Push Proxy

The Jamf Push Proxy enables communication between the Jamf Software Server (JSS) and devices with Self Service Mobile for iOS installed, and between the JSS and personally owned Android devices. Push notifications trigger the following types of communication between the JSS and devices in your environment:

  • Sending Notification Center notifications to mobile devices with Self Service Mobile for iOS

  • Requesting management check-ins from personally owned Android devices

The JSS requires a valid proxy server token to authenticate to the Jamf Push Proxy. An assistant in the JSS guides you through the process to request a new proxy server token from the Jamf Authorization Server and upload it to the JSS.
