Provisioning Profiles

Provisioning profiles (.mobileprovision) authorize the use of in-house apps. For an in-house app to work, the provisioning profile that authorizes it must be installed on mobile devices.

If the provisioning profile that authorizes an in-house app is not bundled in the app archive (.ipa) file, you must upload the profile to the Jamf Software Server (JSS) before distributing the app.

Uploading a Provisioning Profile

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

  2. Click Mobile Devices at the top of the page.

  3. Click Provisioning Profiles.

  4. Click Upload images/download/thumbnails/15893079/Upload_icon.png and upload the provisioning profile.

  5. Enter a display name for the profile.

  6. Click Save.

Further Considerations

  • If a provisioning profile expires, you can edit the provisioning profile record in the JSS and replace the existing profile with the new version.

  • Deleting a provisioning profile removes it from mobile devices that have it installed.

Downloading a Provisioning Profile

If you no longer have access to the original .mobileprovision file for a provisioning profile in the JSS, you can download it from the JSS.

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

  2. Click Mobile Devices at the top of the page.

  3. Click Provisioning Profiles.

  4. Click the provisioning profile you want to download.

  5. Click Download.

The profile is downloaded immediately.
