JSS Objects

JSS objects provide the foundation for performing administrative and management tasks using the Jamf Software Server (JSS). Examples of JSS objects include policies, configuration profiles, and network segments.

For detailed information about a specific JSS object, including instructions for navigating to the JSS object, see the appropriate section in this guide. Common actions that can be taken on JSS objects are cloning, editing, deleting, and viewing history.

Note: Available actions are dependent on the particular JSS object. (For example, a package cannot be cloned, so the Clone button is not displayed for the Packages object.) In addition, an action will not be available if the required privileges have not been granted for that JSS object.
