About Self Service for Mobile Devices

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

The Jamf Software Server (JSS) 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:

  • Self Service Mobile for iOS—You can use the JSS to group configuration profiles, apps, and eBooks in categories, which makes those items easier to locate in Self Service Mobile. (For more information, see Categories.) You can also send notifications to mobile devices with Self Service Mobile installed.
    By default, Self Service Mobile is installed on all managed mobile devices with iOS 7 or later except Apple TV devices and personally owned devices.
    Self Service Mobile is available for free from the App Store.

  • Self Service web clip—In addition to configuration profiles, apps, and eBooks, 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 the Casper Suite v9.3x or earlier, the Self Service web clip remains installed on all managed mobile devices.
