Computer Inventory Information

Jamf Pro stores detailed inventory information for each computer. You can view and edit this information in Jamf Pro. By default, basic inventory information—such as hardware, operating system, storage, and applications—is collected based on the preconfigured “Update Inventory” policy that is created automatically when you install Jamf Pro.

This information is submitted after computers enroll with Jamf Pro and is updated each time the computer checks in and runs the "Update Inventory" policy. For more information, see Computer Inventory Collection.

You can customize Jamf Pro's information collection in the following ways:

Some inventory information is updated by MDM commands. For more information, see Computer Inventory Collection.

For more information about what information Jamf Pro collects for computers, see Computer Inventory Information Reference.
