Jamf Self Service for macOS User Login Settings

The Self Service User Login settings allow you to configure the method for logging in to Jamf Self Service for macOS.

Self Service User Login is disabled by default. After enabling Self Service User Login, you must select a login method and authentication type.

There are two login methods you can choose from:

  • Allow users to log in to view items available to them

  • Require login

After selecting a login method, you must select an authentication type:

  • LDAP account or Jamf Pro user account

  • Single Sign-On

Important: Selecting the "LDAP account or Jamf Pro user account" authentication type automatically enables the Allow users to store their login credentials in Keychain Access option. This displays the Remember Me checkbox on the Self Service Login page that users can select to save their Self Service login credentials in Keychain Access.


To require or allow users to log in using an LDAP directory account, you need an LDAP server set up in Jamf Pro. For more information, see Integrating with LDAP Directory Services.

To require or allow a user to log in using a Jamf Pro user account, you must first create an account for that user. For more information, see Jamf Pro User Accounts and Groups.

To require or allow a user to log in using Single Sign-On, you must enable Single Sign-On for Self Service for macOS. For more information, see Single Sign-On.
