About Packages

A package is a self-contained group of files that can be deployed to remote computers or as part of the imaging process. You can use Composer or a third-party packaging tool to build packages of software, applications, preference files, or documents. For more information about building packages using Composer, see the Composer User Guide.

You can use Jamf Pro and Jamf Admin to manage packages you plan to deploy to computers in your environment. Managing packages involves adding the package to your distribution point and to Jamf Pro, and configuring settings for the package.

After a package is added to the distribution point and Jamf Pro, you can deploy the package to computers using a policy in Jamf Pro.
